His reference is to EXTRACTS of records ordered at Polish Consulates
or Embassies. As I recall, the rate of $35 is the one used by the
Polish Consulate in New York and may be similar at other Consulates
in the U.S. Researchers should be aware that it is often worthwhile to
request such EXTRACTS directly >from Civil Records Offices who may
send it directly without charge or may send it via the Consulate route
with a cost similar to the one mentioned by Jeffrey.
For further information on ordering directly >from the Civil Records
Offices, consult Warren Blatt's PolandV Infofile on JewishGen.
