Growing up in America I always identified myself as “Half Polish”, this was a normal part of my identity as my Great Grandmother sent packages containing my childhood clothing to relatives in Poland. When she passed away the contact stopped and I wondered desperately who she had been in touch with on the other side, what family members I might have. So I composed a family tree and did as much research as I could before finally having the amazing opportunity of flying from Newark NJ to Rzeszów on LOT Polish airlines to visit the part of Poland where my living relatives still live. The beautiful village located in the Podkarpackie region is my family’s history, the place responsible for the existence of everyone I love. This was the most meaningful trip of my life and for anyone of Polish heritage, I’d insist you take the time to discover your own ancestry in the same way.

My wife's family is from Dębica and though we currently call the US of A home my brother-in-law chose to live in Rzeszów. It's a beautiful region.
I had similar experience as you meeting my own relatives in Lithuania.
My name is Marianne Wojtal and I am 2nd generation American of Polish descent. I too, have found my grandfather's papers of intent which showing paternal grandparents' place of birth. Grandfather: Jakub S. Wojtal born in Dlugie Sanok; grandmother: Katarczyna Syslo born in Wola Rzedsinsksa, near Tarnow.
Which churches would have their records? How can I get the information from them? I do not speak Polish, and both my grandparents and parents died many years ago. My brother cannot speak due to stroke, and my sister has no information nor paperwork. I found this information through familysearch.org and ancestry.com
Any ideas are much appreciated. I am so very happy for your family roots being discovered and shared with the world! Forever Polish & Proud!
Wait is your heritage mainly from your father's or mom's side? Because he looks through grandma ancestry. Well I am Turkish and my heritage from my father's side is Uzbek and my mom's side is South-Slavic.
Robi Pan swietna robote, dla nas na obczyznie i dla naszej kochanej Ojczyzny, Niekiedy az lezka kreci mi sie w oku.Dziekuje i zycze powodzenia!!!! Oby tylko sie Pan umial obronic od polityki ,bo do tej pory chyba jest pan neutralny? Oby tak pozostalo. Polska ma jeszcze dluga droge do niezaleznosci;(
Mam pytanie. Dopiero teraz zacząłeś szukać swoich przodków w Polsce? Kilka lat temu, w czasach "To sie wytnie" nie zgłębiłeś tego tematu? Czy może po prostu dopiero teraz nakręciłeś o tym filmik?
Poza tym świetną robotę robisz na swoim kanale, lubiłam Cię oglądać wtedy, ale teraz to już wyższa klasa. Montaż, pomysł i wykonanie :)
Im amazed you remember me from that time, most people forgot already. TSW was a job and I ask asked to play a role, I will always be grateful for that experience but it’s wasn’t true to who I am. Kult America is the type of content I’m passionate about making. Thanks for watching!
Dude, you are eating in 'Karczma Jorgula', in my hometown Nowa Dęba! :O How small is this world? Ropczyce is really close to Nowa Dęba. A lot of people from around these areas have migrated to America. I'm glad to see that you have reconnected with your family, you have my respect for chasing up and embracing your heritage. You never know - somewhere down the line we could be cousins :)
The way this lady looked at you when she found out you are the grandson of Celestyna - magical :) Almost like at the very second she realised all the physical & personal similarities :)
Widziałem wcześniej kilka twoich filmów. Były ok. Na ten film natknąłem się na JoeMonster. Od razu po obejrzeniu odwiedziłem twój kanał, żeby zasubskrybować i zostawić kilka słów w komentarzu. Jeden z najlepszych filmów jakie ostatnio widziałem na YouTube. Dzięki.

If your blood comes from Podkarpacie you are a good man....😃 there are still a lot of TRUE people who live there, especially older generations, whom you can hardly find anywhere else in Poland and in the world.😕
This was absolutely beautiful. Do you keep in touch with your relatives in Poland now that you live there? I want to go to Poland with my kids and my dad as his mom was from Warsaw. I think we should start planning it for next summer :)

I have a family in Canada. Family i don't know. Brother of my great-grandma was born in Poland (today it is the village in Belarus), during the war he was imprisoned by nazis and sent to concentration camp in Reich. He met there his future wife (german woman), and when the war ended they flew to America, and then to Canada. Thanks to red cross, he was found and flew back to Poland, to his sisters (his mother died before he was found, but she has never stopped lokking for him). He visited Poland couple of times in 80s and 90s. Unfortunately he died before i could meet him, and any relations has been broken (my parents and their siblings don't know english language). I only have one photograph of this uncle of mine and my father. I tried writing to Canadians by social media and asking for help, but noone ever share my post. :( I don't know, maybe there's family who don't want to talk to us in Poland. But maybe, just maybe there's a family, who would like to rebound with us...
Niesamowite...Cała Twoja historia którą przedstawiasz na youtube i zaangażowanie we wgłębianie się w swoje polskie pochodzenie...tymczasem moje kuzynki żyjące w Niemczech wstydzą się że są z Polski...Dlatego jestem dumny że jestem Polakiem bo wśród moich rodaków są ludzie tacy jak Ty!Resztą się nie przejmuję...
I envy you, in that you are young enough to have living relatives to make inqiuiries to re-connect with your family. I too am 1/2 Polish of (89%) Eastern European. Being much older than you, my close relatives are deceased. Many of my close relatives in Poland did not survive the war. As a child I still remember the wailing and anguish as the letters began to arrive with the notices of the dead. From then on, I never asked anything. But in you I have a joy that someone - you can do this with care and respect. That care and respect is an element of piety, you're more "religious" than you think. Niech Bóg błogosławi naszej Polsce.
My family also came through Ellis Island, on their way to Pennsylvania, and then on their way to Chicago as it appeared that your family also did. Both of my parents' paternal families, and my father's maternal family came from the same general region that is southeast Poland, eastern Slovakia and western Ukraine, in and near the Carpathian Mtns. Only my father's family identified as Polish while my mother's paternal family identified as Lemko/Rusyn/Ruthenian/Ukrainian. All immigrated from the Austrian-Hungarian empire region of Galicia around the turn of the 20th Century. Thanks for this video.
