35194Re: [S-R] Polish genealogical sources
- Feb 15, 2013Dear Kurt:
Thank you for sharing about what appears to be an awesome and excellent
resource for those of us who also have ancestors in Southern Poland. For
those, like myself, who do not speak Polish fluently, I would highly recommend
using GOOGLE.COM as your browser when you input the main page at
_http://nac.gov.pl/_ (http://nac.gov.pl/) because GOOGLE.COM can translate the page
for you into English. I am just starting to look through the site, and I
hope and pray that church records from around the KROSNO area of POLAND are
there. Now, if I can only find someone who knows military history and can
determine the type of uniform that my great grandfather FRANTISCEK MOSKAL
wore in World War I, I would be very happy.
Thank you again, Kurt! Dobry den!

For those interested in Polish genealogy or work in the Slovak Spis
villages in Southern Poland there is good news. The Polish State Archives has
announced that they are going to put both historical church and many other
civil records online so they can be perused by users internationally and
without charge. They will not be indexed by personal name (at least initially)
but locatable by place name and group, quite similar to how we first examined
Slovak church records inthe family history library..
The first group will go online in March of this year, the second group in
June, and then more to follow.
Here is the statement of the archives, and though in Polish you can paste
it into a translator like google and get a fair translation.
Click on the upper left note that says Plany Publikacji...etc . Plan of
or you may just want to go to the list of villages which will go online in
March. The citation is in the middle of the document mentioned above but
you can get to it directly. The name of the village is in the far right
