Hi all,

Sorry bothering you with so many questions.

I'm thinking about hiring some research services over Poland and Ukraine,
but I'm considering going there by myself.
But I have no clue about the costs of such an adventure and my budget is
I plan to visit places like Piotrkow Trybunalski in Poland and Sapust,
Rozyzcze and Rovno archives in Ukraine as well as Kiev archives (maybe).
As I know many of you have been on this kind of trip, I have some questions:

1. Is a interpreter a must have, or can you figure out just by your English
(do people speak fair English there)?
2. Can you hire a car from Warsaw and, with a good GPS, wonder around or
this is crazy (consider I done this before somehow)? Same to Ukraine?
3. Is it better to arrive in Europe in a main city like Frankfurt and then
trip with cars and/or trains to Poland and Ukraine?
4. Are those places safe?
5. And lastly, how much do you think I'll spend on this (besides the air

Kind regards to all
