Jumpstart Your Polish Genealogy Research with New Legacy QuickGuide by Jonathan D. Shea

Are you perplexed by the search for your Polish ancestors? Whether you are new to Polish genealogy or have hit an impasse in your research,there is a brand new Legacy QuickGuide to help: Poland Genealogy by Professor Jonathan D. Shea, A.G.. 

Here is the product description:

Polish Genealogy by Jonathan D. Shea – $2.95

Once one of Europe’s largest and more prosperous nations, Poland was eliminated from the map of Europe for the entire 19th century as its territory was occupied by the empires of Prussia, Russia and Austria. However, the language, customs and traditions of the people endured and flourished, both in the homeland and in communities founded by Polish immigrants the world over. Genealogical research can be challenging, but once records are located, efforts to document a family history can be productive due to many detailed documents in the nation’s archives.

The Polish Genealogy Legacy QuickGuide™ contains valuable information so you can understand how to research your Polish family history. This handy 6-page PDF guide can be used on your computer or mobile device for anytime access.

Shea, is a professor of foreign languages in the Connecticut Higher Education System and is a trained archivist and professional genealogist with specialization in Eastern Europe and IrelandThe founding President of the Polish Genealogical Society of Connecticut and the Northeast, Inc., he now serves as its Reference Archivist and as the long-time editor of its journal, Pathways & Passages. He is the author of numerous books including Going Home: A Guide to Polish American Family History Research, and the popular In Their Words: A Genealogist’s Translation Guide to Polish, German, Latin, and Russian  Documents volumes with William “Fred” Hoffman.

In the interest of full disclosure, Shea is a long-time friend and colleague of mine and I highly encouraged him to write this guide because I knew that so many genealogists could benefit from his extensive knowledge and expertise he generously shares through the useful tips and strategies included in this publication.*

Don’t have Polish roots?  Don’t despair!  You can now choose from 87 Legacy QuickGuides!

Legacy Family Tree Webinar: Ready, Set, Write…Now Online

In case you missed my recent Webinar, “Ready, Set, Write: Share Your Family’s Story” with Legacy Family Tree, you can now catch the free recording online until July 11, 2011.

A few of the comments from listeners:

Lisa has inspired me to start writing THIS AFTERNOON. I have thought for years about how to organize and start our family history–now I have good suggestions on how to organize it that will fit my style.

I especially liked the suggestion of writing individual character sketches and am anxious to get started with her new ideas.

I have attended a number of similar lectures but none have “fired up” my desire to get writing like this one by Lisa Alzo. Kudos.

Thanks to Geoff Rasmussen and the folks at Legacy. I really enjoyed presenting this topic.
