Tadeusz was born in 1975 in Raciborz (Ratibor), Silesia (Schlesien). He graduated from high school in 1994 and knew that genealogy was his real passion. He wanted to study genealogy but unfortunately none of Polish universities offered this occupation, so he choose Library studies at the University of Maria Curie-Sklodowska in Lublin which allowed him to be as close to genealogy at possible. During his studies he also focused on the interesting topics of the history of books and old documents. It taught him that a wide range of documents exist which can be used by genealogists. In 1999, he was granted the title of Master of Library and Information Science. He was prepared now to start searching for an organization which could offer him the credential he desired. In 2001 he found the International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists which was perfect for what he wanted to achieve. For two years he prepared for the credential which he presented to ICAPGen representatives in 2003 in Salt Lake City. Finally, he was granted the title of an Accredited Genealogist specializing in the research of Poland. Because Information Science is also his specialization, he is very interested in creating electronic databases. Poland has no all-Polish genealogical electronic databases. Some of the records have been extracted into the International Genealogical Index (IGI) but that is but a small fraction of what is possible. He is working to create an all-Polish genealogical extraction project involving old parish registers. Currently he is focusing on the Southern part of Poland. He is working on a Lemko Extraction Project as well as a Silesia Extraction Project. He enjoys traveling to foreign countries such as Denmark, Germany, Slovakia, England, Russia, Mongolia, and Lybia (North Africa) where he has lived for half a year. One of the most exciting countries he has visited is the United States of America, including Provo, Utah where he met many nice and friendly people. He is planning to come to the USA again this year to participate in the 150th Anniversary of Panna Maria, Texas, and to give a short lecture there on Moczygemba's early generations genealogy.
