|Left to Right: Feliks Szerejko, Leokadia (Szymanska) Szerejko, and their son Aleksander Szerejko|
Even in the 1930s when times were tough Auntie Helen had enough money to take a two and a half month trip to Poland. While she was there she toured the country and visited with my grandfather's family in Warsaw. She kept a travel diary during her visit. Here is an excerpt from her diary. The diary is written in quick note form. I've included slashes to indicate line breaks to make it more readable. The spelling is a direct transcription.
