Trusting a stranger

Finding Feldman

How do you know that if you send money for someone to do research on your family history that they will actually do it? It was a scary thought when I sent money via Western Union to Poland a week ago. Grazyna came through! I feel so lucky that we found an incredible researcher/guide for our visit to Poland. Today I got a 12 page report about the Feldman/Adashek family. She included documents, photos, evidence of verbal family history, and information from an interview with the oldest Jewish person living in the town. Our goal is to find the family farm that my grandfather left when they immigrated to the United States.  I don’t know if we will find the exact location but we are getting closer.

    That is great. I know I would have been reluctant to click “Send Money” at to send money to a total stranger. Glad it is working out.

    Wow Beth! Can you send me a link to see if maybe I can get information from the family in Galicia? It would be so awesome to get more information on my grandparents as well! I am so excited for you and your mom!
