The one thing I've wanted to do for a long time is to travel to Poland to do some in-person family research. Over the past several years, I've been able to do some research there by hiring a local researcher who has given me much information. I would like to continue on what he started, but in person. A few things have held me back, but the main one is the cost. This is a trip that I'd like to take with my now 18 year old daughter. Between the price of airfare, accommodations while there, spending money, possibly having to hire a local to help with translation of records, I'm just not able to pay for it, although I have researched about what it will take to make it happen. One day, I'd also like to take my son, but I feel for a research trip, he's still too young.
While I'm there, I'd also like to take some time and photograph. There is so much history there and in surrounding areas.
I know that this trip will happen. The economy here has affected my business and plans just haven't moved forward yet due to a current lack of funds.
