Grandparents Project: A free class

Free class with a grant from the Michigan Humanities Council to help families with
roots in Poland. It is entitled "Uniting Ethnicities and Generations of
Poland".aka "The Grandparents Project". We welcome everyone with roots in
Poland. Participants can choose from a two day seminar-or cover the same
material in four morning or afternoon sessions. There is no fee-and
participants receive a copy of "Sto Lat: A Modern Guide to Polish
Genealogy", and an archival heritage box for the younger generation. While
it is called "Grandparents" we welcome aunts and uncles to bring nieces and
nephews, or parents and children to participate.

We have been running ads in the Jewish News, The Michigan Catholic and the
West Bloomfield Beacon.
