Polish Genealogical Society of America (PGSA) Will Be Having Their November 9, 2014 Meeting/Program at 2 PM at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library; The Program Will Be A Live Webinar; Translation Assistance Available From 12 Noon To 2 PM

Hi Everyone!

PGSA Logo Clip ArtI received the following publicity statement from the Arlington Heights Memorial Library about the upcoming Polish Genealogical Society of America (PGSA) meeting that will take place at the Arlington Heights Memorial Library on Sunday, November 9, 2014.

The PGSA is inviting anyone interested in Polish genealogy to attend the program and get to meet other members of the society.

The formal presentation program will be a live Webinar.

The Webinar speaker will be Jim Pula, Professor of History at Purdue University.  Jim will present a webinar program titled “Kosciuszko Squadron in the Theatre of World War II”.

Two points to note.

1)  If you are going to attend the program in person at the library you will need to register your intention with the Arlington Heights Memorial Library but you do not need to register with the Webinar provider.  The library can accommodate 100 people.

2)  If you do not plan to physically attend the program at the library and you are still interested in participating in the Webinar then you must register for the Webinar and you do not need to register with the library.  Please use the link just below that will get you to the Webinar registration process that has no connection with the Arlington Heights Memorial Library.  The Webinar can accommodate 100 participants.

What follows after the line separator in Bold and Italics is what I received from the Arlington Heights Memorial Library about this upcoming program that also includes the link for Webinar registration.
