Polish Genealogy

I have a friend, Marta, who is from Poland and VERY proud of her heritage. I wondered where she would go if she decided to research her family in Poland from here in the United States. I did some searching and here are some links that might help in your Polish genealogy.

The first site I found was the Polish Genealogical Society of America. They do have a membership offer to get full benefits their site has to offer. But, some of their links are free. If you are a serious researcher, you might consider subscribing to this website. Here are just a few of the FREE links they offer:

Birth Index
Minnesota Church Baptism Index
Cedar Grove Cemetery, Notre Dame IN Index Search
Dziennik Chicagoski Death Notice Index Search 1890-1929
Immigrant Marriage Database St. Joseph County, Indiana
Poznan Project

The Polish Genealogy Project is another website I came across that has a wealth of information. She is researching her family, but in the process listing data that can be of great help to others. Here is what the author says about the site:

“I’ve been researching my family’s history for a little while now and have found that delving into our Polish ancestry has been the most challenging part! I feel that while there is a fair amount online to work from, there are not nearly enough resources available (as there are with some other countries). And finding those resources that ARE available can be a bit frustrating at times. So, I decided to put together everything I have found (whether it pertains to my particular researched areas or not), in the hopes of creating a nice jump-off point for other researchers of Polish ancestry.”

Here are other sites that have a lot of Polish links:

Poland Genealogy Links
Cyndi’s list of Polish Resources
Poland Genealogy Forum
Polish Roots
The Internet Polish Genealogical Source
Polish Ancestry in Detroit, Michigan
Polish Surnames

Here are some books that can assist you in your genealogical endeavors:
