[Ger-Poland-Volhynia] parish in Lublin

I requested five documents last fall. After 4 weeks, I sent an email to the
pastor and within a few days had the documents. He apologized for the long
wait and thanked me for my patience, explaining that most of the time, they
only have one person on staff to reply to all the requests. 

Absolutely they were worth waiting for, very high quality, beautiful

I would suggest it is reasonable to expect to wait several weeks, and like I
did, send a follow up email at some point. I wasn't in a hurry to receive
the documents. I sent the follow-up email when I became concerned that
perhaps my order had not reached him when an entire month had passed.

Hi Peter,

I can only suggest that your friend email the pastor at the Lublin church
and provide the date the records were ordered and payment sent. 
Gene's experiences are fairly common. I know others who have received
records within a day or two and also had the time interval stretch to a
couple of months. I know the church hired someone to help  fill these
requests, but often the pastor still attends to them himself. I'm sure that
during Lent, Easter, and Pentecost he was very busy with church
responsibilities. Filling requests probably also depends on how many they
receive. Those of us on the Lublin Project indexing team aren't in regular
communication with the church. It is possible that some other SGGEE members
who have ordered records will also respond to your query. 
I know that some of them were extremely pleased with the records they
eventually received.
