    Dear Sylwia, I am currently doing some image research and wanted to ask about the illustration you have for Dziady (Forefather’s Eve)… perhaps you could get in touch asap? Thank you! Eleanor

    This is the perfect webpage for everyone who really wants to find out about this topic.

    You know a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that
    I actually would want to…HaHa). You definitely put
    a fresh spin on a topic that’s been discussed for years. Wonderful stuff, just great!

    Hi Sylwia…it seems as if you are no longer writing your blog. I wanted to thank you for the six season post. I have written a historic fiction novel set in Poland in 1445. I am a granddaughter of Polish immigrants to America. My book starts in October and I appreciated the information on the “Golden Autumn” of September and October. I had read before of Babie Lato, but appreciated the pictures, which were beautiful. I regret there aren’t more entries, as I really did appreciate your blog.

      Hello Joanne, indeed, I have abandoned the blog some time ago. You might want to check my FB fanpage though, as there are always some tidbits about Poland. https://www.facebook.com/DiscoverPoland

      I also plan to run in the near future a series of posts on Polish 18th century women (Polish and English versions). If so I’ll link to them from that FB fanpage.

      I hope your novel will be a great success! I can promote it there too if you wish.

      Glad I could be of help to you!

        Sylwia, I was so excited to get a reply! I thought since the blog had ended you would probably not read my comment. I did go to your FB page and friend it.

        I have also checked on the books you recommended, and wondered if you might have any other suggestions of books about the interregnum period 1444-1447 between Wladyslaw Jagiello and Casimir Jagiellon, which contains my very fictionalized time frame for my as yet unpublished novel which embraces much about history but also the tales from Poland’s past….so I loved the Wars and Sawa story you shared.

        I really undertook my book to look at my roots both for myself and my children and grandchildren. My father wanted me to be “a good American” so I was taught only a little about Poland by my mother. While I learned some about my mother’s father, I only recently learned from where he came in Poland.

        I have read many things including a lot of folklore which informed some of my novel and which also fascinates me. Reading about Poland has explained much to me about my family that was never explicit and also about myself.

        Any suggestions for further reading you have would be warmly welcomed. Thank you again for responding. I hope this request is not too much trouble.

    Dear Sylwia,

    Thank you so much! A lot of what I had been able to find was in Polish and I barely have any Polish words (though I am working on it a little – my grandmother and parents used Polish like a secret adult language, so didn’t teach it to me or my sister.)

    Thank you so much for the help and the suggestions.

    Joanne

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the web
    the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while
    peoplee think agout worries that they plainly do not know
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined
    out the whole thying without having side-effects , people could take a
    signal. Will probably be back too get more.

    Thanks http://californiarms.net/author/malorie06g/
