Polish Records now free on Familysearch
« on: Thursday 14 March 13 10:31 GMT (UK) »
Not sure if this has been posted or not yet, but a fellow researcher just brought to my attention that the Polish records on the LDS Familysearch site are now accessible outside the library for free online:

To see the records included:

https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/list#page=1&countryId=1927187

They include:

Poland, Częstochowa Roman Catholic Church Books, 1873-1948   
Poland, Gliwice Roman Catholic Church Books, 1599-1976   
Poland, Lublin Roman Catholic Church Books, 1784-1964   
Poland, Radom Roman Catholic Church Books, 1587-1966   
Poland, Tarnow Roman Catholic Diocese Church Books, 1612-1900   

Not everything is there yet, but the LDS are negotiating with the archives so more may appear soon, I think these have only been available for a few weeks.

Happy searching :)

A great message for all genealogists in the Polish regions: the Polish State Archives have gone online with over 5 million scans of church records and registry office registers!

take english version (flag right above) and the "quick guide":

Thus, for example from the State Archives Stettin no documents available in the archives already in Koszalin: Here is a list of documents that are already available in digital form:
