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!

Ukraine: (going) The Extra Yad blog has an entire page with over 20 posts about their GenTravels to the Ukraine. Sadly, I haven’t found any of my lines from that area.  Too bad, because after reading those posts, I really wouldn’t mind going there!  Thank you Emily for sharing you GenTraveling adventures!

Poland: Pete Millington who writes the Our Brummie Family Tree blog recently visited Poland and blogs about it.  Although it doesn’t appear to be the Real Deal Thrill of a GenTraveling research trip (it was more of a work-related trip), he shares some interesting tidbits.  Thanks for sharing Pete!
