Well, the future has arrived.  The website www.szukajwarchiwach.pl
has loaded the promised images for March, but they changed
the website.  I can see improvements galore, but explanations
are lacking.

If you have started using this website on your own, then you
have a head start on everyone else.  But you will find things
have changed since the explanations I have written previously.

The Lutheran records of Sompolno, for example, are now visible
for 1878-1884 only. For these records, see
I was hoping for later than that, but one must not be greedy,
I suppose.  Remember, the images are not indexed
for an easy computer search.  You need to know how to find
the indices within each year.  For this time period, everything
is in Russian.

The inventory of what has been uploaded is at
You need to know which archive your parish is located at.
For this, consult the Pradziad database at the Polish
State Archives.  http://baza.archiwa.gov.pl/sezam/pradziad.php?l=en

One needs to know the archive number (Konin, for example, is 54),
and I have not found a list of these yet.

Another set of records from Konin are births 1869-1879 for the Lutheran
parish of Władysławów at
Turek has birth marriages and deaths 1877-1884 at

Some 30 years of Dąbie Lutheran has already been online for a while.
Now we have 1826-1865.

Kalisz is 11.  So, if your interest is in Lutheran parish of Stawiszyn, then
you may see images for 1878-1895, check out
Again, the records are in Russian.

I have just mentioned a few places.  Again, you will need to examine the 40
page list to determine if anything from your parish has been posted online.
