GenTraveling – Friday Finds

fridayfinds

Hello! I have some Fabulous Friday Finds to share with you!

All over the internet, there are articles about places where you might want to GenTravel to or some other aspect about GenTraveling! Each Friday I hope to share links to some of those articles. There might be one link, or if my time management skills are stellar that week, and I have time to hunt for more, I’ll link to more than just one. :o)

Here is this week’s:

I know you’ll enjoy reading RestlessJo‘s account of her “Call to Poland” and how her family’s world was ‘turned upside down’ after they received a call from long lost family in Poland who didn’t speak her language, but who welcomed her and her family into their open arms regardless.  I LOVE stories like this! Her father had left Poland 64 years earlier (in German custody). After years and years of no contact, Jo and her father visited their Polish relatives and it sounds like they’ve continued to strengthen those links.  Very cool!

Have a great weekend! Best wishes for finding those ancestors.  Are you planning your GenTraveling yet? Where do you plan to go? Be sure to share your GenTraveling Bucket list on our Bucket List Page.  GenTraveling: It’s the Real Deal Thrill!

  1. Thank you! This is very kind of you. I’ve just returned from Poland today. I had limited time and online access as it was only a 6 day visit and I had much family to see. My first trip without Dad and I was made every bit as welcome as ever. There will be follow up posts. Thanks a lot for sharing this one. 🙂 🙂
