Polish Cuisine, Customs and Traditions
Knowing that all four of my grandparents were Polish, I have always said that I was 100% Polish – until I read James Michener’s book Poland, which I would recommend to anyone interested in Polish history. It is a fictionalized account of the history of Poland. I learned in this book that Poland was invaded many times by different countries, and it would be a rare occurrence that anyone would be 100% Polish. That being said, I have been interested in my origins since I was a child. I began investigating our genealogy about 25 years ago. If you are interested in seeing what I’ve found out, please visit my family websites at www.jarkiewicz.com (under new construction at the moment, so pardon the dust) and www.rogalskifamily.com , which is also undergoing reconstruction.
