Backward and Forward:
Working on a Polish Family Genealogy. From 1900’s Baltimore back to the Polish towns of
Marsha Birnbaum’s great grandparents via the Polish State Archives of 2019
Starting with oral history from her Baltimore great-grandparents, Marsha moved forward to Polish State Archive records that recently became available on the internet. Marsha will tell how she went from bits of oral history about her great-grandparents raising their children in Fells Point to Polish State Archive records leading her back to their Polish towns. Their story is well supported by documents recently available on the Internet. She arranged the new material in a self-published book and has just received the updated 2019 edition.
