Re: Webinar- Finding Your Polish Ancestors Online in the Polish State Archives #announcements #poland

Many thanks to the people who posted positive things about the talk I gave last Saturday for the Genealogy Garage program at the Los Angeles Public Library entitled "Finding Your Polish Ancestors Online Through the Polish State Archives."  I'm glad people found it useful.  

Regarding the short time the video was available, it was supposed to be available for 3 months after the original date.  That is what the librarian and I agreed to.  However, she informed me the night before the talk that LAPL has a requirement that all videos online be close-captioned, but that they will only spend the money to close-caption videos if they are the website permanently.  So they had to take the video down after 24 hours because the library wouldn't pay for the closed-captioning, and they are not allowed to keep it online if not closed-captioned.  Kind of a catch-22 situation.

Regarding the handout, I have no objections to anyone sharing it after the presentation, since it is no longer available on the LAPL website.  Feel free to contact me directly for a copy, if necessary.

Regarding viewing it elsewhere, it may be offered again for one or more genealogy societies in the coming year, so there may be another chance to see the talk down the line.
