GEMS OF POLISH GENEALOGY AT THE NEWBERRY BY GRACE DUMELLE-
ASSISTANT IN THE REFERENCE AND GENEALOGY SERVICES SECTION, NEWBERRY LIBRARY
This video was originally presented as a Webinar at the Schaumburg Township District Library
(NW) on Sunday 20 August 2017. The presentation focused on the Polish Women’s Alliance of
America (PWAA) records and other little-known sources for Polish genealogy at the Newberry,
such as Słownik geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego i innych krajów słowiańskich [Geographic
Dictionary of the Polish Kingdom and Other Slavic Lands] and Mapa Polska, Warsaw: Wojskowy
Instytut Geograficzny, 1915-1939; including holdings of city directories and histories of U.S. cities
where many Poles settled, such as Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Buffalo.
