Locating Vital Records in Poland Using Online Resources, Or, "I Found my Village! Now What?"
by Julie Roberts Szczepankiewicz.

Finding vital records for one's family in Poland is a critical step in exploring our Polish ancestry, but can sometimes be confusing. After a short overview on using U.S. documents to determine one's ancestral village, Julie will illustrate the steps used to determine the parish for that village by introducing some of the gazetteers and indexes that have come online in recent years, including the Skorowidz Królestwa Polskiego. She will also explore the options for locating Polish vital records online using websites such as Geneteka, Metryki.GenBaza, and BaSIA.
