Collecting Our Heritage
Polish History

by Dennis Benarz

I collect history - Polish history, local history, family history - all of which is, of course, our heritage. It reveals our past, tells us where we've been, and gives us a glimpse of where we should be going. If we wish to truly understand ourselves, then we need to know and understand our history and heritage. To that end, I build and maintain various websites to preserve and provide access to not only my particular Bieniasz family history but also that of the Malopolska region of southeast Poland and various aspects of our Polish heritage.

I am proud to be the editor of the Spuscizna Group's endeavors. May God bless us with further opportunities to share what we've accumulated with you.
