Index of Polish Parish Records
This is an index to names in Polish parish records which have been microfilmed by the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. Some American parishes are also included. This database allows you to search for a Polish ancestor and receive information about which microfilm contains the filmed record. Microfilm rolls can be requested on a loan basis for a nominal processing fee from all Family History Centers or through their affiliate library program. Brighton District Library is pleased to be one of the Family Search affiliate libraries through which these microfilms may be ordered. Information on ordering FamilySearch microfilms may be obtained at Brighton District Library's Reference Desk.
