Genealogy Indexer.org is a free website for searching over one million pages of historic European directories, secondary school reports, military documents, and more. This talk will provide an overview of the 1500-plus sources for Poland and how to search them. Containing many millions of personal names — often with towns, street addresses, and occupations, and sometimes with vital dates or patronymics — most of this data is not searchable elsewhere.
Logan Kleinwaks is the founder and director of Genealogy Indexer.org, which was one of Family Tree Magazine’s 101 Best Websites for 2015 and 2016. He is the coordinator of JewishGen.org’s Danzig/Gdańsk SIG, served on the Board of GesherGalicia.org, and enjoys creating online genealogy research tools. He has a research background in physics.
A reception will follow the lecture.
