My Polish Roots
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 15 years ago. If you are interested in seeing what I’ve found at, please visit my family websites at www.jarkiewicz.com and www.rogalskifamily.com , which are always under reconstruction.
I recently had my DNA tested, which confirmed my beliefs that most people are not 100% anything!
