A Student's Guide to Polish American Genealogy by Lisa Olson Paddock, Carl Sokolnicki Rollyson

This guide gives students the tools to trace their ancestry, teaching them to collect data, obtain and evaluate documents and sources, use the latest electronic tools for researching, and conduct accounts of historical events in family life.


?Each volume provides an easy to understand overview of the history of immigration and culture in the U.S. for the particular ethnic group....Where these books shine, for the student and adult genealogist, is in the resource listings....For students, these books provide a great way of getting started in genealogy and learning about the life and heritage of their ancestors. For adult researchers these books provide excellent resources to move beyond the genealogical books into learning about the history, culture and experience of their ancestors.?-FGS Forum
