Polish Eaglet Articles

At times we get requests for copies of articles from the PGSM Polish Eaglet.  I would like to make everyone aware that the PGSM policy does not allow for the purchase of invididual copies of articles. The Polish Eaglet is available on DVD which contains all issues from 1981 through 2012, including a Title Index, a U.S. Locality Index, a Polish Parishes Index, a Family History & Biography Index, a Canadian Locality Index, and a Miscellaneous Article Index. The cost of the DVD is $27.00 for PGSM member and $37.00 for non-members, these prices include shipping and handling.  It's very easy to order your DVD visit our "Store" which is located on the left hand side of this page.  Simply click add to cart and complete the purchase process.  Than sit back and wait for the DVD to hit your mailbox. Also, if you are not a member of the PGSM consider joining the Society. 

What Social Media Can Do for You

Katherine Willson We know that not everyone is using Facebook or other social media but in the interest of providing our PGSM members with as many resources as possible we would like to make you aware of the updated list, compiled by Katherine R. Willson of Ann Arbor Michigan.  Katherine is a highly acclaimed and professionally trained national public speaker.  Her recent successes using Facebook to break down genealogical brick walls inspired her to compile a list of 5,000 plus Facebook groups designed to help genealogists.  We hope it will help you break down some brick walls too. 

Polish Heritage Series

Interested in making Angel Wings, Pisanki Eggs, Kielbasa Making, Palm Weaving, or a Easter Butter Lamb?  Our Lady of the Scapular (formerly Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish, Wyandotte is presenting a series of classes, which will be held in the Social Room, to enhance your knowledge of Polish culture and traditions.  For information or to reserve space (seating is limited) and to pay in advance call Laura at (734-282-8947)
