The book collection can be divided into three main categories: How-To, Where & Who Books

First, there are HOW-TO books. Some are general, and others are specific, for example how to research immigration records, or how to do research in Poland.

Second, there are WHERE books: where to get vital records, or where to find information about a specific family. These books are largely lists.

Third, there are WHO books. These include vital records, family genealogies, etc. These are the books which might have actual information about your family.

Our collection in this category is primarily of a local nature. There is, of course, some overlap in these categories. There is usually some WHERE information in the HOW TO books. There are also a number of journals. They are listed separately.
