I hired Andriy Dorosh from Western Ukrainian Tours to locate information regarding my grandparents. I ordered a Virtual Tour of my grandfather's village Turia and where my mother was born and christened in Lviv. He created a wonderful video. He kept me informed all the way through and gave me an upfront quote which was very reasonable for the service he provided and which didn’t change even when something unexpected came up. His report on my grandfather’s family was very detailed and I have learnt so much. If you want someone who is trustworthy and will go out their way and give you 110% then I recommend Andriy and his company. I know I have made a friend who I can contact anytime with a query and for me my journey has just begun.  Maria Picker Australia

My GGGrandfather's House in ancestral Ukraine

What was my GG grandfather’s life like? What kind of place did he live in Ukraine? What was the house like? Where did they cook and how did they heat the house? What was the baby’s cradle like? What kitchen utensils did they use? What kind of premises were around the house and where was the livestock kept? What were the tools they used in everyday life? What did they grow on their garden? What kind of clothes did they wear?
