Finding lost relatives, locating an ancestral plot and the burials of the ancestors or just creating a Virtual Tour to show what the village is like are the main goals we set to achieve by doing local research in the villages. I would like to take you Medvedivtsi village in present day Ternopil Province of Ukraine to show what this process is like. 

 

 

Communication with wonderful local people, village life experience, beautiful views, detective work, solved puzzles and reunited families all make me happy. 

Don’t I have a great job???

I have been trying to research my grandfathers side of the family for many years with very little progress. This is until I contacted Andriy and his team, within the space of weeks I found out more than I found in many years of searching. I can’t thank them enough for the wonder research they’ve carried out, it’s been a smooth and enjoyable process from the outset and can’t wait to continue my journey with Dorosh heritage tours.

I was first put in touch with Olia and Andriy by a contact in Australia Krystyna from Lost Histories, in October 2021. Olia was able to find out a huge amount of information about the Polish side of my family that would have been completely impossible for me to research. All those that would know any information have long gone, so the information I've received is invaluable. Each step of the way has been explained in great detail including photos, maps both historically and to date, to help me understand the geography and genealogy. Each time a new development was possible, it was explained to me in detail to give me the full picture and why it might be important. Any question I had was answered in great detail in a timely manner. Incredibly Olia's research was able to continue on into this year while Ukraine was having such terrible trauma. I cannot thank you enough for your help with my story, my love and appreciation. Peace on earth, Kate.

I have had the most professional and exciting experience with Dorosh Tours. I wanted to research my maternal line in Ukraine. I didn't have much information to go on and thought it would be very difficult and maybe impossible to learn about this side of my family. Dorosh /Olia really left no stone unturned and I was so happy with my research reports they provided. I now have names,dates and places to fill in all previous empty blanks in my family tree. I found the whole experience wonderful, even the price. I highly recommend their services. Wendy
