My grandmother and mother got me started on researching my family's history about one and a half years ago. Since then we have visited some distant realations in Massachusetts and had a family vacation in Yonkers, New York, which is where my great, great, grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Julian Borkowski settled when they arrived from Poland. It is also where my grandmother was raised. I have taken many photos and other sorts of important documents ,(ie..birth certificates, military records, telegrams, death certificates,etc..)and placed them in my family heritage album. My best friend and I have been trying to research our family history, but because our roots are from Poland, it is a very difficult task. If you have any tips or resources on researching family history from Poland please contact me.
