For years the records of Eastern Europe (Poland, Russia, Lithuania, Hungary and so on) have been difficult to access because of governmental restrictions and the historical upheaval of that region of the world. Many of these records are now open to the public, and the Family History Library (headquartered here in Salt Lake City, Utah) is microfilming thousands of records from these countries and from 250 countries world-wide, making genealogical research in Eastern Europe more possible than ever before. This presents several challenges for the family researcher who must be prepared with a wide knowledge of cultural, historical and geographical differences and data in-order to properly trace Eastern European Ancestry. In most cases, professional genealogy help will be needed to accurately discover, determine, document and display the East European Family Tree.
