Surrey Libraries Family History

Hello WaSGS,

A quick note from over the border here at Surrey Libraries Family
History…  We have two FREE online Eastern Europe research programs in
August, on the heels of our really popular Eastern Europe program
earlier this year.  Are you able to promote to your gen folks?  I’d be
grateful for whatever you are able to do.  Posters are attached, and
blurbs are below.

Genealogy: Eastern Europe Border Changes

ONLINE program

Tuesday, August 16

10:00 – 11:30am PDT

Anyone researching their family history in Eastern Europe probably has
faced the challenges that changing borders present. In this program,
Edie Adam will use findings from her family history research to
demonstrate the key factors — time and place — and how to use them to
your advantage.

Genealogy:  Online Polish Records

ONLINE program

Tuesday, August 30

10:00am – 11:30am PDT

The ability to search for birth, marriage and death records in regions
now in Poland has enabled genealogy research most of us never thought
possible. However, to many these resources are a perplexing maze of
random searches. This presentation will provide a brief overview of two
primary databases which reveal parish and civil registry records in
Poland encompassing many Polish, German and Jewish residents of in the
19th – early 20th centuries: Geneteka and Metryki.Genealodzy.PL

Free.  Registration required.  Email or call

Many thanks!
