[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] Online-Informations from the Staatsarchiv Posen

This is a fantastic resource, folks, especially if your genealogy tracks through Posen / Poznan Province!  But it also includes several dozen places in what would be the far western portion of Russian Poland from roughly Dabie in the east to Sompolno in the north and almost to Wielun in the south.    

These are ***actual online original records***, not just indices.  

The only records which I spot checked were those from Roman Catholic Churches.  There may be Evangelical (Lutheran) records as well.  In any case, you may need some of the Catholic ones if there was no Lutheran Church in the region.

We should be very grateful for people like Petra and her fellow researchers who find these resources and then take the time to make them easier to use.
