Gary Palgon started tracing his family tree in 1980, but began the journey of digging for records in Belarus in 1994. Beginning with a visit and subsequently creating a Lyakhovichi “Special Interest Group (SIG)” which helped to fund and access more than 40 data sources dating back to 1784, he and other members accumulated more than 26,000 records, documents, images and more. Gary will discuss his journey, how others helped along the way, both in the United States and Belarus and give tips on how to do the same for other places. Additionally, Gary will share his expertise on related projects which included restoring, cataloging and publishing an ancestral cemetery in Poland and his success in publishing more than a dozen family tree books.
