My name is Tim Firkowski, I have been around since 1963 and I am hoping that you will allow me to bring your family history to life.
I have been doing genealogy research on my family since 2002. My father was born in Poland in 1942, but my grandparents left Poland when he was six months old. Since he came to the U.S. with his parents and sister, he has always tried to find someone with his same last name in the U.S. during his travels, and was never successful. My interest in genealogy began by meeting Lukasz Firkowski from Poland on ICQ. In two years of research, we located 1300 members of our family, in four years 2300 were located. Thousands of hours were spent in gathering information and “assembling” the family. The First Firkowski Family Reunion was held in Poland in 2004. Family members attending numbered 202 from six countries at that First Family Reunion. The story of our research has been featured in five Polish newspapers, and two radio programs in Poland.
I enjoy the challenge of searching and solving problems. From early on in life I had an interest in computer programming, which developed into my interest in website design. My interest in photography has followed me since I was a child.

Services Provided: I can: – Organize family data – Perform genealogical research, specializing in Polish & American Canadian research – Historical Research of a place ancestors lived – Consultations – Photography of tombstones, houses, churches – Travel to gather information or photos – Create a website for family data or your genealogy business

My language accomplishments include: studying eight years of Spanish, one year of French, learning German while living in West Germany for two years, & at present I am learning Polish.

With Ohio roots and Irish heritage, I now research in Connecticut. In addition, a 5-year residence in Arlington, Massachusetts, gave me familiarity with facilities in the Boston area. I have a fondness for researching Irish immigrants. My academic background in biology has led me to two previous careers–teaching secondary-school science and a 16-year stint as a laboratory research scientist at a major pharmaceutical company. I bring a scientist’s intrinsic curiosity and attention to detail to my genealogical research. My scientific background gives me qualifications and experience in the field of DNA research. My teaching background has prepared me for lectures and presentations. My genealogy experience ranges from simple look-ups of vital records, gravesites, and probate records to researching entire families and performing heir searches.
