Polish Genealogy Conference

The 32nd Annual Conference of the Polish Genealogical Society of America, 19th Century Research using 21st Century Technology, will take place October 1 and 2 at the Hilton Hotel, Oak Lawn, Illinois, 9333 S. Cicero Ave.

The schedule is still in formation; however, John Hallman will discuss the previously unaddressed topic of Lutheran church records; Meghann Pytka will explain the triggers of the mass immigration of Poles; and Judith Franzin will unearth treasures in Polish language records. There will also be sessions about inquests, urban research, lost children, probate, Polish Archives, and more.

There will be help for the new researcher in the form of beginning lectures, and for all with a Q & A corner and translation help. If you are serious about Polish Genealogical research, this is a conference you definitely want to attend.

Watch for future announcements on the PGSA web site.
