Genealogy 101: Working with a Polish Researcher

Genealogy 101: Working with a Polish Researcher

The Polish Genealogical Society of America (PGSA) invites you to the webinar Working with a Polish Researcher presented by Dorena Wasik. This is an introduction for people who would like to start looking into their family roots in Poland.

Besides this webinar, you can also watch the very interesting YouTube video Polish Genealogy produced by the GenalogyTV.  It is another 101 intro to the subject that I found very informative and encouraging. GenealogyTV’s Connie Knox discusses different aspects of looking for Polish ancestors with three PGSA experts with hands on experience in Poland. The video was taped in 2019 and presents best of current resources available to you.

Back to this webinar, below is the info about it from the PGSA website:

Learn how to work efficiently and effectively with a Polish researcher from home or in-country to dig more deeply and broadly into your Polish ancestry. What questions to prepare? What documents to organize? What specific goals to attain? What to take, and not take to Poland. The answer to these and other questions will greatly enhance your results.

Guest Speaker: Interest in her own Polish heritage has led Dorena Wasik into pursuing many aspects of Polish genealogical research over the last ten years. As a result she is well known in the New Britain, CT Polish community, involved with several Polish-American organizations, including volunteer director for the Polish American Foundation’s Polish Language School for Adults and coordinator for their genealogical and cultural trips to Poland. She has also spoken at several genealogy conferences in Poland to help Polish researchers find their American families.
