"Researching Polish Family History: Getting Started" presented by Patricia Yocum  (GSWC Meetings - Programs)
1:30 pm
Education Center Auditorium, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Campus, 5305 Elliott Dr., Ypsilanti, Michigan
Researching Polish family history can be a challenge. Poland’s history is complex, its language may seem daunting, and familiar sources often prove fruitless. The good news is that the research situation is fast improving. Records are being digitized rapidly both in the U.S. and in Poland, translations are increasingly available and the Web puts its riches at our fingertips. With a bit of guidance about fundamentals, use of selected sources and proven strategies, you can establish a Polish family tree back many generations. Emphasizing sites freely available on the Web, this program will help you set course for successful searching in an area of increasing interest.

"What You Need to Know About Will and Estate Records" presented by Jeff Mason  (GSWC Meetings - Programs)
1:30 pm
Education Center Auditorium, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Campus, 5305 Elliott Dr., Ypsilanti, Michigan
Will and estate records contain a wealth of information about a family and are a primary source for providing proof of relationship for periods before the 1850 census records and birth/marriage/death certificates. Many will and estate records offer information as to the marital status of the deceased, the names of their children and even approximately how old each child is. This talk will discuss the information that can be found in these records as well as methods for obtaining them.
