Genealogy Saturday, offered monthly for six years, has been cancelled for lack of public participation. We now provide two alternatives:
- PGSA volunteers work in the library of the Polish Museum of America most Wednesdays from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Their primary task is filling orders; they are also available to consult on genealogy questions/methods.
- Brief reference questions and queries about research methods may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Enrich your genealogical experience by working on a valuable
Geographic Atlas of the Kingdom of Poland (Atlas
Geograficzny Illustrowany Królestwa Polskiego) contains 85
detailed maps of Polish powiats or regions. Each map illustrates a
powiat and the towns contained within. The PGSA is currently in the
process of indexing each map. This means you will be able to search
an extensive database of Polish towns and download a corresponding
map! The maps are already online, however there are still maps to
be indexed. We need your help to complete this project! Find a town
you're interested in on the
Powiat Map List
