STOP! DO NOT ORDER! Out of Stock! _______________________ Sto Lat: A Modern Guide to Polish Genealogy; by Cecile (Ceil) Wendt Jensen; 2009; 144 pp; Perfect Bound; 8.5x11; ISBN 9780615360997; Item #: MP01

I’ve sold a few books on Polish research over the years, most often the classic Polish Roots, by Rosemary Chorzempa. I’m now offering a wonderful new title written by Ceil Jensen, who I met at the 2010 NGS Annual Conference in Salt Lake City. The volume is a lavishly illustrated workbook titled Sto Lat: A Modern Guide to Polish Genealogy which offers a plan for researching at least one hundred years of family records, and is a compilation of Ms. Jensen’s techniques developed over thirty years of research and teaching. Both traditional and digital research methods are presented. Common research questions are answered and suggestions are offered to help novice and advanced researchers find ancestors in both North America and Poland.

The following is from the Table of Contents:

  • Palonia: Communities and Societies
  • Foundation Research
  • U.S. Military Records
  • Immigration and Naturalization Records
  • Geography, Gazetteers, and Maps
  • Record Keeping and Handwriting in Poland
  • Case Studies and Historical Documents
  • Heirlooms, Documents and Collections
  • Research – Digital and Traditional
  • Web Addresses
