Find Friends And Family Members in Poland With Free Polish Heritage Search
Warsaw, Poland 4 April, 2007 There are now two free services that make finding Polish family members and lost friends in Poland. One is on line and the other, based in Warsaw, Poland is offline.
The offline service is a research service for people who are interested in searching their family heritage in the records from hundreds of churches and synagogues in Poland. The records are on microfilm and volunteers, acting on requests for searches, make a painstaking search of what is on microfilm.
If a search requires records on film, a volunteer goes to the church or synagogue and puts the records on microfilm.
The service is located on ul. Nowy Swiat, right in the center of Warsaw. Nowy Swiat is one of the main tourist paths for Warsaw and is very easy to find. You can see a picture of Nowy Swiat and get more information at this link for Warsaw, Poland.
The volunteers respond only to requests that they take personally from people who walk into their office. Requests for help forwarded by phone calls and email are politely ignored. They simply use this as a way of screening so that they do not waste the valuable time of their volunteers.
If you come to Warsaw, you will find them at ul. Nowy Swiat #31 in location #1. The door is on the left in the gateway to the building.
The second service is on line and is a free self help service that also depends on volunteers. This service not only allows a search for family history, it also allows one to find current phone numbers, addresses and to find lost friends.
Information is posted in a database that allows one to search for a name and to make contact with the person who made the entry. It is a spam free system because a private email system is used.
Each of the services fits a given need for those people looking for information.
