Did you hear about polish drama book "Wesele" (Wedding) by Stanisław Wyspiański? It was written in 1901 and inspired a real wedding of a poet Lucjan Rydel and a peasant Jadwiga Mikołajczykówna. The marriage was celebrated on 20th November 1900 in Kościół Mariacki at Main Square in Kraków. And the wedding was prepared in Bronowice (then - the nearby village and now - one of Kraków's districts).

Today in Poland we celebrate our beloved Babcia (Granny) and tomorrow our Dziadek (Grandpa). We take this opportunity to wish all the best to the Grannies and Grandfathers who you love and respect. May their lives be easy, calm and full of the joy and all their concerns should dissapear.
If your grandparents still live and can share with you their wisdom, knowledge and so many memories, you are a lucky man. Remember to note or record everything which can be useful in creating family story for the next generations. Who knows what information can be important in the future? Saving your grandparents' voices - speaking, laughing, singing or even yelling may be the best memorabilia after the years. Today we have more options to record memories, our ancestors had the letters, notebooks, sometimes the photographies. In XXI century even our telephones can do the movies and save sounds. Why not to use this in our genealogical role in the family?
