My great great... grandfather Martin lived here.....

21st September 2015

On the hill surrounded by beautiful greenery in the wooden brown house my great great great great great ... grandfather was born in 1807. His name was Martin.. At that time he ran a big farm in the village. He was well-off.
 He also had a big orchard.




Delicious raspberries were available there..



The small cat was playing in the tree.

The wooden house was rebuilt in the beginning of the 20th century....  Most of my relatives were born here before left Poland forever...

Living here probably was comfortable at that time far from the noisy civilisation..

The plant is in the poor condition ..the drought..

  4. Way back 5 generations and a large farm might constitute an estate in
    Polish terms?
    Does the "farm" still belong to your family - now I suppose returned after the
    Soviet control of Poland until Solidarity triumphed to return Poland to democracy.

    1. The farm since 18th century belonged to my family and now also belongs. Durimg communism farmers in Poland were lucky because they could have the right to own farmers and soil..It is our family farm for ages.
