One way to kick off the holiday season is by participating in #GivingTuesday. In February 2019 the images for the first 82 rolls of the Buffalo Dziennik newspaper (1911-1941) will be free to search on the NY State Historical Newspaper website. This was made possible by everyone who has donated to this great cause. We need additional funds to finish scanning the remaining 82 rolls (1941-1957) and scan missing editions that we found in Chicago that were never microfilmed.
Please consider donating on this #GivingTuesday to the Polish Genealogical Society of NY State. PGSNYS is a 501(c)(3) organization and you will receive a receipt that may be used for your tax purposes. You can still adopt a Dziennik roll for $55 in memory of a family.
We have two convenient ways to donate:
1) on our website http://pgsnys.org/donate
2) You can mail your donation to: PGSNYS, PO Box 984, Cheektowaga, NY 14225.
