      It appears that Poland is beginning a multi-year project to digitize the vital records of churches and synagogues in all of their archives and to post the information free on the Internet.

      See here:

      Most of the news focuses on the digitization of Jewish records, images of which will be linked to the indexing project of Jewish Records Indexing-Poland (JRI-Poland).

      But this site explains that Roman Catholic and Greek Catholic parish registers will also be included:
