Poland Off The Beaten Path: 138 reviews and 177 photos

Pajezsno was an interesting experience in our tour thru Poland in search for my ancestors. I "met" Romek on line thru Ancestry.com... same as Gosia, our guide. Romek, (tall high school student at left of photo) built his own computer...welcomed us to his town...introduced us to his mother (center of photo) - who worked at the town hall. His mother searched the town's records for our family name ...to no avail. But she connected us to a high school teacher who had written a book about the town and its history. We visited the high school and caused quite a stir w/ teachers and students. Who are these crazy Americans in our town? They don't have many visitors .. especially from the USA. The whole experience was fascinating for everyone concerned that day.
Pajezsno is a simple little town with no particular distinguishing landmarks. Maybe that is why we had the experience we had. People at the town hall, the high school, the local restaurant, the local church... all trying to welcome us and help us with our search for family roots. It is these simple human moments that tell me the most about a place and its people.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
