Dear Jan,

Thank you for your kind and warm email. I am sorry not to have posted a comment earlier on the website; something that has been coming to my mind all along the year. It has been a very intense period, where I have been able to learn a lot and to adapt to a new environment. That is what has been preventing me to find the time that this requires. Firstly, I have to say that your heartfelt words moved me. I believe that this way of living makes the difference in the world… The generations that will come after you will undoubtedly appreciate the work you have done, for what they will have a great example of gratitude and uninterested service. Unfortunately, things in Spain are a bit difficult when it comes to heritage. The civil war that my grandparents lived 80 years ago has left its footprint in the country, threatening the conservation of personal and common heritage. In this sense, I think that the Civil War violence is somehow similar to what Poland has often suffered. Nevertheless, when violence comes from the confrontation of brothers, it becomes even more painful. That is, I believe, one of the reasons why genealogy is not something respected in Spain. Lots of archives were burnt during the war, and is difficult to trace back history. Plus, is often caricatured or seen as quijotesque (from Don Quijote, Cervantes’ main work on the dreams and adventures of a simple man that believes to be a knight). An attitude that only shows belittlement and praise to ignorance… I have learnt a lot while researching about my ancestors. We are all quite similar at the end of the day, and this helps to understand oneself even better. That is one of the main reasons why I have chosen Kierkegaard as one of the main authors that influence my thesis. For him, self-improvement can only be built upon self-recognition; this is, to recognize one’s past and, hopefully, accept it. When I saw your website I was shocked by the pictures with family and friends around large family trees; that’s to celebrate history and love! We are always seeing war’s commemorations, but few or no commemorations of the loving side of history, which is seen in families.

To read about the history of your family, your grandfather and you has also been very moving. Also, the history of your father is very representative of the history of center Europe of the last century. Thank-you for sharing it with me. I hope one day you can fulfill your desires of testing chromosome. In any case, you already have that certainty inside you, and that is what worths all the work done. I would also hope I can go to Dobra if we find some kind of certainty about our links with the town, and, eventually meet (although I believe that living in Canada makes things slightly more difficult). In any case, the idea of having found a possible origin of Francisca and tracing her to Demkowicz of Dobra who during napoleonic wars found himself in Spain, is very gratifying. I am happy to have found you, and the website, and I thank you a lot for the work. I wish you a very happy and fulfilling stay in Poland with your family, full of joy and love.

With my warmest regards, Pepe

My maternal grandparents' names were Joseph and Anna Demkowich. They lived in Burnside.

I recently found out the history of my great grandparents (Jan Demkowicz and Anna Hnatusko) from Dobra Szlachecka. I was thrilled to see actual records of their emigration to Scranton, Pennsylvania so many years ago. Thank you to Mike Demkowicz for his time and dedication to this research. Finding out such detailed information and being able to pass it on to future generations is priceless.

Chciałbym zapytać, czy istnieje możliwość wglądu w rozpisane drzewo Dobrzańskich ze zdjęcia [] ?

Z mojej strony mogę zaoferować rozpisanych Dobrzańskich z okolic Brzeska i Jasienia.
Proszę o kontakt;] Pozdrawiam, Michał Dobrzański.

Hello Michael,
I mean exactly this image: [] taken during meeting in Dobra in 2015.

And about the Dobrzański family I've got only informaction from church records in Jasień Brzeski, Małopolskie, Poland. For about 2 years I was looking for anything about any Dobrzański in parish of Jasień. About 95% of them are related to each other (and my ancestors also come from this branch). There are also 2 little branches of the Dobrzański family in Jasień. One belongs to "Magnificus Dominus Stanisław Dobrzański de Jasień", another to Peter from Jasień who emigrated to Nowa Wieś Szlachecka in parish of Liszki, Małopolskie, Poland. I didn't find any connection between "my" branch and their yet.

My paternal line is:
Jan Dobrzański (my grandfather, born 1919), son of Józef (born 1891), son of Tomasz (born 1856), son of Walenty (born1817), son of Jakub (born 1796), son of Franciszek (born 1761), son of Wojciech.

During second WW my grandfather met with Henryk "Hubal" Dobrzański (near Kock, in Sep. 1939). They agreed they are from one family. Also my grandfather remembered (I don't have any clue how and where did this information came from) that my part of the Dobrzański family cames from common ancestors from Dobra as an old noble family.

I only have some scans from Jasień (church records). During exploration of site, I found pictures from 2015 year meeting. One of them presents table-big genealogy tree of the Dobrzański family; and that's the picture I am asking about.

Some months ago I asked in gestbook at site about any clues about my ancestors but there was no answer.

I hope you may have acces to the genealogy tree I'm asking or contact to someone who can have.

Thansk for your answer. I attach all known descendands of Wojciech Dobrzański - the dead ones.
Michał Dobrzański.

Szanowni Państwo, z uwagą przejrzałem stronę "Dobrej" i chciałbym z całym szacunkiem pogratulować tak wielkiego przedsięwzięcia. Jako człowiek zaangażowany na wielu płaszczyznach społecznie wiem ile czasu, a czasami własnych pieniędzy trzeba poświęcić ,aby takie rzeczy organizować, przeprowadzić i utrzymać w ciągłości. Sprawy ważne mentalne dla dzisiejszej społeczności oraz ludzi którzy stąd pochodzą, a losy ich rzuciły daleko bez łączności z „Dobrą” , czasami na drugi koniec Świata. Taka działalność nie tylko wbija w dumę z przynależności do społeczeństwa „Dobrej”, ale ukazuje ciągłość historii miejscowości, rodzin i ludzi z nią związanych. Przez to się identyfikujemy i czujemy się w całości odpowiedzialni za Dobrą, odpowiedzialni za Jej przeszłość i co równie ważne Jej przyszłość. Jeszcze raz gratuluję, dłoń ściskam, Michał Korsak prezes Fundacji Ziemia Dobrzyńska
