The Genealogy Assistant
My name is Tim Firkowski, I have been around since 1963 and I am hoping that you will allow me to bring your family history to life.
I have been doing genealogy research on my family since 2002. My father was born in Poland in 1942, but my grandparents left Poland when he was six months old. Since he came to the U.S. with his parents and sister, he has always tried to find someone with his same last name in the U.S. during his travels, and was never successful. My interest in genealogy began by meeting Lukasz Firkowski from Poland on ICQ. In two years of research, we located 1300 members of our family, in four years 2300 were located. Thousands of hours were spent in gathering information and assembling the family. The First Firkowski Family Reunion was held in Poland in 2004. Family members attending numbered 202 from six countries at that First Family Reunion. The story of our research has been featured in five Polish newspapers, and two radio programs in Poland.
It is ironic that genealogy is a research into history. In the past I have not had much interest in history, in general. But, looking back at my life, as I write this background on myself, I remember how much I used to enjoy biographies.
My language accomplishments include: studying eight years of Spanish, one year of French, learning German while living in West Germany for two years, & at present I am learning Polish. I have enjoyed traveling to many different countries and have learned a lot on each trip.
I enjoy the challenge of searching and solving problems. From early on in life I had an interest in computer programming, which developed into my interest in website design. My interest in photography has followed me since I was a child.
