Jonathan Shea’s new guide is an indispensable reference book for anyone doing Polish genealogy research. Going Home covers every possible topic one would need to know about including a history of Poland and Polonia; genealogical resources and records in the U.S.; information about gazetteers and maps; vital records in Poland; vocabulary lists for Polish, Latin, Russian and German; and a discourse on Polish surnames. Three appendices provide information on Polish parishes in the U.S., genealogy web sites, and addresses for archives in Poland, Belarus, Germany, Lithuania, and Ukraine.
