Malgorzata was absolutely amazing!!!! I told her that my ancestors were Kashubian and provided her with a few details. This was during our tour. She changed the itinerary to accommodate me visiting the villages and cemeteries. It was an exceptional day for me. I will return to do further research and I will ask Malgorzala to be my guide and help me. She was absolutely the very best. Jane Halas of Canada
