JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Getting documents from Polish archives #general


Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

Last year, it took me 5 months of waiting, $70, and several
telephone calls to get two simple documents >from Poland--and
this only because I had complete dates and correct names. And
after all that, I only received incomplete summaries of the two
records!

Over the years, I have failed to find an efficient
system for checking archives in Poland. Recently, I tried a
service that promised good results. I am pleased to report
that I actually got good results--a thorough check of specific
years for specific cities. If anyone needs to get
birth/marriage/death records >from Polish archives, I would be
glad to share my experience. (And the usual disclaimer:
I have no financial stake in this company! Then again, I
have no financial stake in any company!)

Documents that I have received have tied up a dozen loose
ends on my Englander family, added a new generation, provided
the names of my great great grandparents and my gr gr gr
grandparents, and added the names of great great aunts and
uncles I never knew I had. It's been quite an explosive
development in my family research!
