You are cordially invited to attend the 2012 Conference of Polish Genealogical Societies. Our VIP lecturer is Barbara Berska PhD, Deputy Director of the State Archives of Poland. The Polonica Americana Research Institute is organizing the conference with the support of the Polish Genealogical Society of America, the Polish Genealogical Society of California, and the Polish Genealogical Society of Michigan. We will meet in Salt Lake City, Utah at the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel, which is next door to the Family History Library (FHL). This world renowned genealogy library holds international books, maps, microfilm and digital databases. The FHL is open to the public and access is free of any charge. We balance the event to allow research in the library as well as time to attend classes with noted Polish genealogists and leaders in the field. The conference includes the lecture series, conference syllabus, hospitality, and an evening banquet with a keynote address with Dr. Berska. Individual consultations will be available with fellow genealogists.
