Just like to further point out to all that we are trying to keep up to date with these on line records as apply to the LUTHERAN church and you can link to them directly from our web page http://www.sggee.org/research/parishes/church_parishes/LutheransInRusPoland.html rather than going through a drawn out search process.  There is no big fan fare announcing additions so we rely on people like Al and our other readers to keep us up to date on what is available.

We are not including Catholic records at this time.  They may be valuable for some locations and situations, but you will have to search for them manually per Al's instructions.  We are also not including the entire Poznan province - only that part that became part of Russian Poland.

> The website of the Polish State Archives in Poznań has posted
> an April update to the list of digital images online of church records
> from the Konin. I reported on the last updates in December 2011.
> Currently, only some five branches are participating in a beta
> project called “Zintegrowany System Informacji Archiwalnej
> ZoSIA” (baza ZoSIA, for short), including Warszawa, Lublin,
> Poznań, and Konin. The only online inventories of which I am
> aware are for just two of them:
> for Konin:
> http://www.poznan.ap.gov.pl/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=116&Itemid=80
> For Poznań, see
> http://www.poznan.ap.gov.pl/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=133&Itemid=80
> (from December 2011, this may update very soon))
> Remember, these are just links to the inventories. They lack
> hyperlinks to take you to the records on a different website.
> You need to keep track of two numbers: that of the branch archives
> and that of the parish. The number for the branch archives in 
> Konin is 54;
> you will find the number for the parish in the first column of the
> inventory, labelled “Numer zespołu”.
> If you wish to see records from the first parish on the Konin list,
> Białków (52°10' N 18°35' E), you need the Konin number 54 and
> the number 726 that you found in column one for Białków.
> The website where you will find scanned records is:
> http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/54/726/0/-/.  This was the easy part.
> Look mid page, on the right side for "Title of the Fond" (against
> a grey background). Above this line, on the right side, there are
> three tabs: description of the fond, series, and units. Select the
> second tab, for series. From here, I usually look for the line that
> says: urodzenia, małzeństwa, zgony ("births, marriages, deaths").
> Click on it. Then, select the year that interests you, click on it.
> From here, you are on your own. For records in the Poznań
> archives, the process is similar. Its number is 53.
> There is no search box for you to type in a surname. You will
> need to look for your names record by record, page by page.
> Using the records will be somewhat easier if you already have
> familiarity with the format of church records that have been
> microfilmed. Do keep track of where you found the index for
> the year, as they are unmarked and tedious to locate.
> Use of these records is intended for people who know how to
> determine which parish they should look in (hint: you must use a 
> gazetteer).
