By requesting access, you are agreeing to abide by the restriction that these documents will be only for personal, non-commercial use. Violations of these terms will result in the membership being revoked. These documents will be available underneath controlled access from Google Drive.

For all intents and purposes, photography is allowed at the Polish archives for personal and non-commercial use. The files given to My Pomerania align with these terms and have been shared to help others who may not be able to do research in the archives in person. These files are to be considered personal copies of the respective people who obtained them, and their use should be seen as in connection with a personal, non-commercial research group to help each other with their genealogy. Misuse of these terms may have greater implications on the group effort as a whole, and could cause legal issues. Users are asked to please asked to observe respect of these terms for the greater good of the research community.
