1. Project summary:

During the realization of our two-year project as a part of Comenius Programme we want to find the answer to the key question which is also the title of our project” Mum,dad where is our family name coming from?”. In order to do that we together with students wish to investigate the students’ families fate , their descent, roots, the reasons of coming to Czulow and settling in the place. We will analyze the family trees, conduct the surveys and interviews with grandparents, organize the old pictures and keepsakes exhibition. We will try to get to know as much as possible about the history of Czulow families to let the students know and understand themselves better. We also wish to investigate the migration waves in our area, their reasons and influence on the local community.

Our quest will be enriched with pieces of information about local cuisine, music, stories, legends and children’s games. We wish to exchange the experience with our European partners and get some valuable information about their history, cuisine, music and education systems.

We will enrich our experience, win new friends and broaden our knowledge

May our project tree grow vigorously and bear the best fruit!
