Once one of Europe's largest and more prosperous nations, Poland was eliminated from the map of Europe for the entire 19th century as its territory was occupied by the empires of Prussia, Russia and Austria. However, the language, customs and traditions of the people endured and flourished, both in the homeland and in communities founded by Polish immigrants the world over. Genealogical research can be challenging, but once records are located, efforts to document a family history can be productive due to many detailed documents in the nation's archives.
The Polish Genealogy Legacy QuickGuide™ contains valuable information so you can understand how to research your Polish family history. This handy 6-page PDF guide can be used on your computer or mobile device for anytime access.
