Are the original copies of Polish birth certificates
available? I recieved typed certificates on new forms.
I am seeking the signatures of my Grandparents from
Warka Poland on their childrens birth certificates.
Thank you,
Marilyn Hoffman
Dear Marilyn,

records "younger" than 100 years are kept and handled by the Urzad Stanu
Cywilnego (Marital Status Office) and being a state institution for
marital status data, they issue only excerpts >from original documents
but not photocopies of the original documents.
Copies of the original ones are available only >from the State Archives -
those that are already 100 years old and older.

With best regards,
