Polish Genealogy Notable News – #Polish, #Genealogy

Polish Genealogy Notable News

On Wednesday (November 2nd), Family Tree Magazine released their 101 Best Genealogy Websites. Their email newsletter had the link for 2010 unfortunately — which Stanczyk only just noticed as I was writing this article. Here is the link to their 2011 version of the 101 Best Genealogy Websites. This 2011 article did NOT have a printable list of URL’s/LINKs, but here is the PDF from last year .

On Monday (October 31st), The Gen Dobry newsletter came (always a monthly highlight) and there was a mention of the United Polish Genealogical Societies Biennial Conference in April 2012. For more info on this conference, go to: http://upgs.eventbrite.com/ .

Stanczyk’s own Dziennik Polski (Detroit, MI) Historical Ethnic Newspaper page had many updates this week. Most importantly, the Dziennik Polski Names Index Page now has nearly 31,000 names (and dates and whether it is a birth, marriage, or death or other event).

South Florida’s Sun Sentinel published an article November 1st, on a remarkable story of how genealogy connected a Jewish Polish-American with the rest of his Holocaust survivors family. This is genealogy at its most poignant.

Blessings for the new week!
