Rodzina!: Researching Your Polish Ancestors
June 16 @ 6:00 PM EDTCost: $85
Today there are an estimated 9 million Americans who have Polish ancestry. Connecting to your rodziną—family—in the old country, however, is not without its challenges. Language barriers, changing historical boundaries, and record access can forestall your success in tracing your Polish roots. This three-session course will set you up for success! Topics include how to locate your ancestral town or village using American sources, how to navigate shifting historical borders, review the types of records you are likely to find in each region, and provide case studies demonstrating various research strategies.
This course includes three 90-minute classes; exclusive access to handouts and recordings of each presentation; and in-depth Q&A sessions with the instructor.
