The records we will find for you most likely will be in Polish, German, Russian, Ukrainian, Lithuanian or Latin.

Please consider having them translated into English or other languages to get a full understanding of the information about your ancestors locked in the records. Most often the records will contain more details than bare names, dates and places.

An example of a birth record written in Russian translated into English:

Jaworzno, [nr] 8 (on the margin)

This occured in the village of Jaworzno on March 3/15 1877 at 5 o’clock in the afternoon. Piotr Pronbys appeared, a farmer residing in Jaworzno, age 27, in the presence of Karol Garbaciak, age 45, and Frank Jaros, age 55, both farmers residing in the village of Jaworzno and presented to us a male infant stating that the baby was born yesterday in Jaworzno at 8 o’clock in the morning to his wife Marianna nee Kielian, age 19. At Holy Baptism administered by us today, this baby was given the name of Józef. The godparents were the aforementioned Karol Garbaciak and Marianna Wicend. This document was read to the declarant and witnesses, and then signed by us only, because the people present are illiterate.
