Aleksandra Kacprzak – loves genealogy. It is her everyday job and lifetime passion. For many years, she has been operating her genealogy business “Genoroots”. She has spent thousands of hours in archives, travelled countless kilometres to search and find lost pieces of history that once gathered all together create a beautiful patchwork of the human story. The profession of family and history detective suits her. As a child, she loved Lieutenant Colombo and Miss Marple for a reason. Clients are happy with the work she does, and the ancestors long forgotten are brought back to life and can finally rest in peace. Theory can never replace experience, and Aleksandra shares her knowledge at various conferences and meetings both in the USA and in Poland. She is also a published author, not only limited to genealogy. For both small and large groups, she organizes trips around Poland for descendants of those who had decided to look for a better future on the other side of the big pond and never returned to their native land. They gave their children and grandchildren the seeds of Polish identity which are now sprouting. In her case, so-called “leisure time” is only a thing of dreams; yet, where it comes true, she loves to enjoy it in a warm or hot climate. She loves beautiful landscapes, other cultures, new tastes, and a game of backgammon with a cup of good coffee. Yes... This is life. The appearance of a balance between sitting and an active way of life is provided by rollerblades and badminton. It is in appearance only - because the computer, desk and family trees are decidedly winning.
Everything related to genealogy interests her, so, via her creative talents, she was inspired to create the first genealogy related internet store in Poland, in which every family detective can find what they need.
Mariusz Żebrowski – loves drawing.
He draws whenever he’s inspired. His distinctive style, accuracy, surprising associations, double meanings and witty satire - is pure talent. In the most recent bygone era of socialism and the beginning of great change, the underground published his works, and people were moved, smiled and waited for more. There were also adventures with legal press, exhibitions, music show posters, and cassette covers for Hard Core Polish bands, such as Cela nr 3, Zakon Żebrzących, HCP. As an historian and archivist, his everyday work is at a museum, where he studies the endless depths of history related to the military past of our ancestors. His publications on fortifications are too numerous to be listed and cannot even be counted! With great eloquence, Mariusz talks about his passion and is frequently invited by various institutions and organizations: from universities to history clubs. His unforgettable lectures are like time traveling into the past. Great knowledge guides him also through historical games which were played by our ancestors a long, long time ago. However, he has a worthy opponent in backgammon (see above). If only a day was longer than 24 hours, his rollerblades and badminton would get more of his attention! This about sums us up, although much more could be added. Feel free to browse our virtual shelves. Have fun browsing, shopping & purchasing.
