Good afternoon everybody,
there's also another link about other towns:
http://www.szukajwarchiwach.pl with a great collection of polish
archives. Write the german name of the town, and you often find...
And there, no need to log in, there a lots papers of civil registry
offices before 1945..
There also are collections of people woh left Germany, people who lost
their german nationality, etc..
Take the time to have a look..but most of documents are written in german.
Good luck and sorry for my bad Englisch,
Have a nice day
