Polish Archives - what can be expected? #poland


I have just finished receiving a number of documents from the Latvian Archives, documents such as birth and marriage records and copies of passports with photographs. Given the extensive destruction that Warsaw experienced during World War 2, what kinds of records could I expect to find from a search of the Polish Archives for ancestors that lived in Warsaw from the 1880's through 1943? Would it be mostly birth, marriage, and death records, such as are already available on-line, or would they also have passports with photos and other types of documents? What is the best way to contact the Archives or go about finding out information about my ancestors there?
