My name is Daniel Paczkowski. At some moment in time, I felt I have to discover history of my family. First conversations with grandmothers were exciting and gave me a big portion of genealogical information. I started to learn how to achieve data from different sources and build genealogical tree. Step by step, genealogy became my passion.
I have been keen on travels and discovering interesting places near my home city from the time when I was a child. So, it was my passion from the early beginning. At some moment in time I decided to do something with my it and finished a course at local tourist guides society to become a tourist guide.
It was natural to connect my both passions – touristic guidance and genealogy and create value added services for people interested in discovering their roots in Poland and visiting their ancestral places.
Last but not least: I am a member of Polish Tourist Guides Society (PTTK) in Białystok, co-founder and member of Stowarzyszenie Jamiński Zespół Indeksacyjny – a group of people indexing vital records from parishes laying in north-eastern part of Poland and member of APG (Association of Professional Genealogists). I am publishing texts about genealogical research and interesting sites in north-eastern Poland in Polish language at “od czasu do czasu” blog.
