    If loving Aruba is all it takes, then I guess I must be a long lost cousin as well!

    Arubamark,

    Speaking of Polish people, during my recent stay on the island, I met more Polish natives than anywhere else in my life. The most fascinating was the fellow who fought both the Germans and the Russians during WWII (and sometimes his own brother who was in a different resistance group). Then there was the pilot who flies the charter flight from Naples, Italy to Aruba. And then there were many, many more. I was stunned. Of course, I speak no Polish, but have a Polish last name (ski) courtesy of my father's side of the family, and these people continued to come up asking me where I was from in Poland.

    Anyway, it was an interesting experience.

    Have you ever considered hunting for your "roots" in Poland? I did, in 1980, and found 3 of my 4 grandparents families. Each of my grandparents was from Poland, and they all came to America between 1900-1910.

    Rob O,

    My aunt did this research over the last five years or so. Of the part of the family that came to America, a few went back before WWII and did not survive, which cut off that line.

    I'm considering a trip to Poland and some other Iron Curtain countries in a couple years, more for the atmosphere than any serious genealogical research.

    It is a fascinating topic, however.

    Very interesting stuff! My moms side has the (ski) as well. My dad the (cki)

    We have our children calling my mom and dad Babcia and Dziadzio. It's great.

    We have more and more in common as time ticks by.

    Perhaps you can advise on how to proceed with this situation. A friend of mine brought her father to Aruba (who I know very well) and we went to synagogue. He noticed on the memorial plaque a name which is the same as his. It is not a very common name and it is spelled the exact same way. This man is a Holocaust survivor and as you know they are always looking to find family. He was very moved and wanted to find out more about this individual. The person died in 1942, so we weren't sure how he got to Aruba, etc. There is a family who lives currently in Aruba with the same last name.

    I just took this man out for lunch and he asked me again if we (as in me and his daughter as we are both regulars to Aruba) could help him find out more information. Is there anyway to find out more about this person/family?

    Any advise would be appreciated. There could be a story here....
    happiness is going to Aruba with your adult kids because they still want to come with their parents

    Randi,

    I would check with the Nation Archives of Aruba first. I haven't been in there yet myself, but my understanding is they have quite a bit of info there including stuff from the Esso days that is very thorough.

    After that, you have to go into serious genealogical research, a topic which I'm not very informed about, just what I'm told by relatives and friends.

    Good luck.
