Researching Polish Ancestry Online , by Joseph F. Martin
A list of vital records (mostly Catholic duplicates, also some Lutheran and Jewish) kept in the Poznan Archives, concerning the Eastern parts of Greater Poland is available at:
This area was in the 19th century part of Congress ("Russian") Poland, later in the voivodship of Poznan, after 1975 in the voivodships Konin and Kalisz.
The list gives:
Parish name (district'1890 in brackets), religion, time frame (b. births, m. marriages, d. deaths, r. registers only, a. all available). The letter K after the last year means that later records are in the Archive in Kalisz.
All records are microfilmed by the LDS up to 1865.
