dsc06976As soon as I learned I was going to be going to London, England for the "Who Do You Think You Are? Live" Conference, I contacted Dawid Firkowski in London. Dawid is my Third Cousin Once Removed (3C1R).

Dawid and I have talked numerous times over the years via skype and facebook, but had yet to actually meet. I had met Dawid's parents a number of times in Wrocław, Poland, but Dawid moved to England from Wrocław, Poland 7 years ago.

Dawid lives in the northern part of London and I was in the southwestern part of London, but it was very easy to get to where he lived. The Picadilly tube line runs from right where I was to where Dawid lives. I just hopped on the tube and when I got off Dawid was there to meet me.
We quickly met up with Dawid's wife and daughter, Izabella and Maja. It is so wonderful to see the family growing. Genealogically speaking it can be difficult keeping up with all the new events in a large family tree.

We all took a  walk to a local Polish restaurant called "Autograf" and had a wonderful meal and a good Polish beer.

I had a pork cutlet that  was so big that it did not fit on the plate.

We walked back to Dawid's home and picked up a few more good Polish beers (I got my favorite beer "Dębowa Mocne") at a local shop and  we sat in his garden relaxing and chatting in the warm sun. I was grateful that the weather in London was beautiful during my entire visit.

Our visit was short, but oh so wonderful! What a wonderful way to mix business with pleasure on my travels to London.
