Polish Sites

Preserving the Past for the Future

This web site directory is PGSA's first step to inform and build awareness in the ability of our members to access "Digitized Polish Vital Records" via the internet. In addition, we will strive to mobilize our members to volunteer in the effort to transcribe and / or digitize Polish vital records before they fall victim to the ravages of time and are lost forever.

The Partitions of Poland

The Partitions of Poland or Partitions of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth were a series of three partitions which took place in the second half of the 18th century and ultimately ended the existence of a sovereign Poland and Lithuania, its partner in the Commonwealth, for 123 years. The partitions were conducted by the Russian Empire, the Kingdom of Prussia and Hapsburg Austria, which divided up the Commonwealth lands among themselves progressively in the process of territorial seizures.
