Dear friends of JRI-Poland:

When you are posting a message to this mailing list concerning
communications with the Polish State Archives, it is extremely
important that you state whether you are writing them to order
a record referenced in the JRI-Poland Database or writing them
for another sort of research request.

PLEASE always indicate one of the following in your

1. if your message relates to an order you submitted
using the JRI-Poland 'on-line order form' linked to the
Search Results.

Because these orders cover records indexed under the
JRI-Poland/Polish State Archives Agreement, JRI-Poland
can provide you important information about making this
order, such as NOT to include a covering letter with the
bilingual on-line order form.

2. if your message concerns a research request made
to, or to be made to (a branch of) the Polish State
Archives and which is therefore unrelated to the
JRI-Poland on-line indices.

Because such an order is separate >from the JRI-Poland
on-line indices, it is not covered under the procedural
information that JRI-Poland provides. It is important that
researchers remember this difference.
