Here is the product description:

Polish Genealogy by Jonathan D. Shea - $2.95

Once one of Europe's largest and more prosperous nations, Poland was eliminated from the map of Europe for the entire 19th century as its territory was occupied by the empires of Prussia, Russia and Austria. However, the language, customs and traditions of the people endured and flourished, both in the homeland and in communities founded by Polish immigrants the world over. Genealogical research can be challenging, but once records are located, efforts to document a family history can be productive due to many detailed documents in the nation's archives.

The Polish Genealogy Legacy QuickGuide™ contains valuable information so you can understand how to research your Polish family history. This handy 6-page PDF guide can be used on your computer or mobile device for anytime access.

Shea, is a professor of foreign languages in the Connecticut Higher Education System and is a trained archivist and professional genealogist with specialization in Eastern Europe and IrelandThe founding President of the Polish Genealogical Society of Connecticut and the Northeast, Inc., he now serves as its Reference Archivist and as the long-time editor of its journal, Pathways & Passages. He is the author of numerous books including Going Home: A Guide to Polish American Family History Research, and the popular In Their Words: A Genealogist's Translation Guide to Polish, German, Latin, and Russian  Documents volumes with William "Fred" Hoffman.

In the interest of full disclosure, Shea is a long-time friend and colleague of mine and I highly encouraged him to write this guide because I knew that so many genealogists could benefit from his extensive knowledge and expertise he generously shares through the useful tips and strategies included in this publication.*
