Stanczyk, has been culling through his iGoogle page and Google News page on genealogy for things to do. Sorry for the last minute notice (it was just published today). Here is one local to the Greater Philadelphia area:
The Luzerne County Historical Society (LCHS) is holding a roundtable discussion on Polish genealogical research from 10 a.m. to noon 1/21/2012 at the LCHS’s museum, 69 S. Franklin St., Wilkes-Barre. Call 570-822-1727 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations.

Peter and Paul Church, Avoca, and Joseph Habersky, retired high school science teacher & grandson of Polish immigrants and amateur genealogist.
