Please Note

The primary role of the Polish Genealogical Society of America is to help people do their own family searches. We do not have the staff to do genealogical research, but our volunteers are happy to try to help guide your research.

We will respond to simple questions sent to [email protected] Examples of simple email requests: In what province is Lublin? Do you have a list of Polish genealogists?

We do not have immigration or naturalization records.

Many of the records we do have are in Polish. Translation guides may be found on this website in the Research Sources tab in the header.

Copies Haller’s Army documents, and pages from Jubilee Books, are not provided by PGSA. The PGSA search engine provides only the location of the data and order form. Requests for these must be addressed to, and are processed by, the Archives of the Polish Museum of America, as described on the order form.
