About us

 Welcome to our website! We are a group of licensed tour guides, historians  and professional genealogists who have been working mostly in Poznan,  Greater Poland & the surrounding areas, but also all over  Poland since 1997. Our team members, who can help you to  find out more about your ancestors and places they used to live, are: Kasia, Magda and Lukasz.

 How we started? In the beginning, we were interested in the history of our families, but that hobby grew as we started to dig deeper into our past. Prompted by some of our foreign friends seeking advice from us on the internet, to help trace their own families’ histories in our country, our personal hobbies shortly turned into setting up “Discovering Roots.” Today, our passion is focused on helping others  to look for their roots in Poland, and in many cases, reconnecting them with family members. 

Our goals! We truly admire our guests who, not only spend countless hours researching their past, but whose own passions and desires lead them to travel many thousands of miles to come to their ancestors’ homeland, and explore the places where they came from. At “Discovering Roots,” we appreciate that everyone’s story is a little different; everybody is unique, so it is important to us that we work together with our guests to tailor for them the experience of a lifetime.

What we focus on!  Unlike typical group bus tours, at “Discovering Roots” we try to concentrate on  individual guest’s needs and desires. If they want to spend more time exploring a place, have us talk to locals for them, to gather information, or simply want to take more photos for their memory books, we do not cut the experience short, and rush them on to the next tourist destination, which might not have sentimental meaning to them. We enjoy sharing in the excitement of their discoveries, and it is our real pleasure to experience them with our guests.

What do we appreciate? The greatest reward for us at “Discovering Roots,” is knowing that we are able to help others solve some of the mysteries of their heritage, and   at the same time, discover our beautiful country. Please feel free to check our references

What we can do for you! If you are interested in “Discovering Roots”  help to plan a trip to Poland, need  research  assistance, or just have questions regarding our services, please send us an e-mail One of us will respond as soon as possible.
