Discover Your ancestry and Roots in Ukraine and Poland
Genealogical Research in your Ancestral Village in Galicia, Bukovina and Volhynia
Are you looking for information and present-day images from your Jewish, Polish or Ukrainian ancestral town or village in today’s Western Ukraine or South-Eastern Poland?
Planning a visit to Lviv, Galicia, Bukovina and Volhynia – to the land of your Jewish, Polish or Ukrainian ancestors?
Trying to find long-lost family relations in Ukraine who have been separated through immigration, wars or deportations?
Or want to trace your family roots without leaving your home country?
Please consider the following option:
- Simply let us know the name of the community where your ancestors lived and their names. We will try to establish if any of your long-lost relatives might still be there.
- We will send you digital photographs of the area and, with permission, take pictures of people who have the same family names as your ancestors who left the area.
- We will also send you town pictures and pictures of tombstones with family names, if they exist.
- People often cannot find their ancestral towns because of historical name changes or different spelling. Our local knowledge may help.
- We may also help by providing some local area history.
- If your potential relatives still live there, we will provide their address and other contact information, if available.
- We can send you a link to a scanned image of a detailed map of the area surrounding your ancestral town.
- Finally, we may help you to establish what tribal group, or ethnic group, your town/village can be attributed to based on its geographic location.
