Skorowidz Królestwa Polskiego czyli Spis alfabetyczny miast, wsi, folwarków, kolonii i wszystkich nomenklatur w guberniach Królestwa Polskiego, z wykazaniem: gubernii, powiatu, gminy, parafii, sądu pokoju lub gminnego, oraz najbliższej stacyi pocztowej, wraz z oddzielnym spisem gmin podług najświeższej ich liczby i nazwy ułożony, wykazujący: odległość każdej danej gminy od miasta powiatowego i sądu swojego gminnego; czy i jakie znajdują się w gminie zakłady fabryczne lub przemysłowe, szkoły itp. oraz ludność każdej gminy, obejmujący także podział sądownictwa krajowego świeżo urządzonego. 



This index is similar to the Słownik Geograficzny Królestwa Polskiego that many of you are familiar with. However, this version might be slightly less intimidating to non-Polish speakers, because the information is arranged in a columnar style that makes it easier to navigate. Column headings include name of the town, gubernia (province), powiat (county), gmina (town), parafia (parish), sąd pokoju (courthouse) and poczta (post office). This index can be downloaded to your desktop using the following link:  

http://www.sbc.org.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=oai:www.sbc.org.pl:10794&from=FBC (for Volume 1) and 

http://www.sbc.org.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=oai:www.sbc.org.pl:10795&from=FBC (for Volume 2).

In the menu to the left, click “download.” The index consists of a zipped file with the number 10794. Open the file, and click “extract all files.” You will notice that each page is a file type, “.djvu.” This is a format similar to PDF that may be unfamiliar to many Americans. Not to worry, though, because you can download free djvu-reading software here:

Note: DJVU is incompatible with older versions of Google Chrome (which I, apparently, was using the first time I tried to view DJVU files online), so Google Chrome users may want to switch to Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc. if blank files still appear after downloading the plug-in. 

If you prefer not to download the both of these very large file to your desktop, you can also view the content online, once you have the DJVU reader installed. Follow the link provided above to the Silesian Digital Library. To the right, underneath the image of the title page of Skorowidz, there’s a link that says, “Show Publication Content.” You should be able to use the entire index that way. Hope this helps. Happy researching!

  • The Poznań Project

The goal of the Poznań Project is to transcribe the 19th century marriage records from the historic Greater Poland into a searchable online database. The core part of that region was at the time the Poznan Province of Prussia. Our efforts were started in 2000 and now over a million records are available.

The Project is coordinated by Łukasz Bielecki of Poznań and is actively supported by dozens of volunteers from many countries, who have been transcribing marriages from the entire region. The search engine was created by Maciej Glowiak and we are using the technical facilities kindly made accessible by the Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Centre.

  • Skorowidz Królestwa Polskiego:

For most of us, determining our ancestral village, and then finding the parish which served that village, is the critical key we need in order to extend our research into Poland. With this in mind, I want to call your attention to a sweet little resource that Waldemar Chorążewicz mentioned in a recent thread. It’s called Skorowidz Królestwa Polskiego, or Index of the Kingdom of Poland, published in 1877. As the title suggests, it’s an alphabetical index of all the villages, towns, and cities that were within the borders of Congress Poland, which existed from 1815-1863.
