Help for Everybody
This is a large and growing site to help all those who are seeking their
ancestors from the Lubelskie/Lublin province of Poland, of any faith and
anyone who has an interest in learning something about the province, past
and present. If you have any comments or information, please don't hesitate
to contact us.
Throughout the site there are guide pages, it is worth checking them
out even if you think you know what you are doing. They will indicate what
you can find and what you need to know to make the best use of the information.
This site covers a wide range of subjects, both directly genealogy orientated
and indirectly through support information. So, while you can find addresses
of relevant organizations you can also find out how people farmed in the
past and present for example. It is our aim to help you to not only discover
the bare bones family tree but also to learn how these people lived and
how family still in the region live. No matter how deep you go into the
site you can always find your way back here by looking for the 'LUBGENWEB
We try and respond fairly quickly to mail (but we do have an occasional
holiday), but often we ignore pleas for help if it is clear that the sender
has not bothered to check out what is on the site. We also do not help
with family trees, that is your job. Remember that while we are very willing,
this is all done in our spare time and completely unpaid. We have no connections
to any company or governmental department.
How you can help, & what this
site is about If you have any information, pictures etc which
do not appear here, then you can have it added to the site - just write
to us at the address at the bottom of the page. If you are planning to
visit the region, then don't forget to take your camera with you, and pop
into the local tourist offices to see what they have available, as they
often have booklets full of useful information (a growing number in English).
If you have any local knowledge or even family stories, we would be glad
to hear about it and will fit it in on the relevant page.
This page contains information about the province
that you are unlikely to find elsewhere, and focuses on individual locations.
For advice on how to find your ancestors, parish
addresses etc, you should go to the PolandGenWeb
these chat & discussion groups!
Web sites for the Lublin Province Other Web sites can be found through the appropriate
Powiat Page (see above).
Lublin Official Home Page-
not the most informative city site, but some nice pictures and they have
a camera giving a picture of the main gate to the old town, updated every
30 seconds (click on the 'Goat' image at the top of the page, and then
the 'goat' at the top right corner of the next page to come up).
-- Focuses on those of Germanic origins in Russian Poland and Volhynia.
Lots of information and a discussion group.
- some useful links for everyone, the best of which is the Shtetlseeker,
an excelent place name search function. This site is not to be missed if
you have Jewish ancestry or family involved in the death camps.
- A guide to searching for ancestors in Poland, with maps of changes to
political borders and some good template letters.
Border Surnames - Useful addresses for genealogists working in
Poland and surrounding countries, also with a good emailing list.
Yellow Pages (PanoramaFirm) -- Either enter a name in the search
facility, or the catergory feature further down the page. Note the English
option button in the top right corner of the first page does not help,
so input the name of the place you are interested in in the box marked
'miasta' and then click 'szukaj'. The next screen that comes up will have
an English flag button on it that actually works!
Polish Business Directory -- Fascinating lists of businesses and
who owned them . Remember that this is interwar Poland, so includes parts
of former Poland now in countries on the eastern side and does not include
former German regions in western Poland.
