Shortly I will be sending as attachments posters for use in the following countries: Canada, France, New Zealand, Poland, Sweden/Scandinavia, UK, and US. It is our hope that all group members download and print at least one of these versions and post in Polish meeting places throughout the world now in time for the Christmas rush. Some suggestions for places to post are: Polish food stores or delis, churches that have a large or primarily Polish congregation, Eastern European restaurants, Polish clubs or organizations in your respective countries, Polish travel agencies, universities with an Eastern European department, etc. Those of you who do not live in an area with a high concentration of Polish people could perhaps hang the poster at your Family History Center, for example.
The poster, which is 8-1/2 x 11" size, can also be printed and sent regular mail throughout the world. It could be enclosed with a Christmas card to relatives in Poland and other countries. It can also be sent as an email attachment to those in other countries. Submitters throughout the world without computers may send their names directly to our group's volunteers in their own respective countries.
Note that if you are sending the poster to Poland or another country via regular mail, you must use the recipient country's poster. For example, when I send the poster to Canada, I will not use the poster version for the US, but the Canadian version poster since the regular mail submissions will go to Canada not the US.
If desired, the poster can be printed, photocopied, and you can drop a number off at different locations so people can take a copy with them. Another option for group members would be to attach an envelope at the bottom of the poster and place small "address papers" (see "Take One" sheets in attachments) inside the envelope which will contain both the Wall site address and that country's volunteer's address.
Two Polish versions will be attached for each country, one English version, and one "Take One" address sheet. One of the Polish posters contains diacritical marks, and the other does not. The poster without accents was included in case the accents did not transfer properly. If the accents do not display properly, please use the unaccented other version.
Thanks, and if you have any questions, please email me at <eve5j@...> or Stefan at <swisniowski@...>.
