Grace DuMelle, a Reference Librarian at the Newberry Library, gave a genealogy presentation at our library on August 20, 2017 for the Polish Genealogical Society of America (PGSA). The program title for the afternoon was “Polish GEMS at the Newberry Library”. As part of the presentation, Grace did bring in some handouts.
One of her handouts was a nice compilation of a variety of Polish Resources that are at the Newberry Library that can help you in your Polish genealogical research. It provides resources according to the following categories:
- Guides and Bibliographies
- Maps and Gazetteers
- Biographical Resources
- Nobility and Heraldry
- Jewish Resources
- Roman Catholic Resources
- Chicago Resources
- Dictionaries and Translation Resources
- Resources Elsewhere in Chicago
Here is a link to see the list of Polish resources that can be found at the Newberry Library:
If you access the material through the link above, you will also be able to access the additional links contained in the list from the website of the Newberry Library.
If you are doing Polish genealogy research it is probably a good idea to at least view this list of resource materials. Perhaps you have become familiar with some of them but you may also discover new ones you were not aware of.
The list of resources is a very long list of Polish research resources to check out.
