Having trouble finding your ancestors from Pomerania? You might want to look at Metryki.Genbaza.pl and the PTG’s website. Easy to follow directions for registration are found on this site here. Metryki.Genbaza.pl is where scans from the Koszalin and Gdansk archives are uploaded for genealogist access. According to new Polish rules at the archives, each book must be indexed before it can be placed online for worldwide access.

So, while some records are currently available for searching, others remain out of reach for the time being.

Want access to those records? The PTG is working on indexing all records for easy access. Go to their website to inquire about becoming an indexer and helping the cause.
