Are you sometimes wondering: why did your ancestors leave their homeland? We would like to remind you an article two years ago. Perhaps it could shed some light on reasons of this emigration:

On this day 73 years ago at 5:00 pm the Warsaw http://ow.ly/7dio30e4IIN Uprising has started. Facing the horrors of Nazi German occupation for 5 years, the people of Warsaw have decided to rise up and grasp for freedom. Opposing the German war machine, Western Allies indifference and Soviet hostility towards the Uprising it ended with failure on 2 October. We remember their heroic deeds and will never forget them. In the attached video we would like to show you how thousands of citizens of Warsaw commemorate the beginning hour of the Uprising.

Since 2007 when our PolishOrigins Forum was established one of the most often appearing requests have been those about translations of handwritten records.

In 2009 the Russian Records Translations thread was created. Soon after we created Polish Records Translations thread. After that followed Latin Records Translations and the most recent thread is German Records Translations.

A number of translation requests is continually growing which means more work for translators. I want to remind that contributors are not financially rewarded for sharing their time and knowledge. They help because they want to.

Together with all the active and former translators we recently discussed current problems they are facing. The result of the discussion is set of rules regarding translation threads we decided to introduce.

You haven't heard from us for a while. This is all because we are fully focused on the current tours we have and on preparing to these which will take place in the coming weeks and months. There will be days when 5 different groups will be on the road at the same time. You can imagine that it requires an organizational excellence. And organizational excellence is not only about experience but about full concentration on all details :-).

But it doesn't mean that besides tours there is nothing else going on in PolishOrigins. Our Forum is very active, especially our translations section about which we will write more soon.

And new discoveries happened also on the blog like the one here: http://blog.polishorigins.com/my-trip-to-poland-with-zen-september-1-2015/comment-page-1/#comment-419180 http://ow.ly/XQ3V30bNjxd
