Dear group,

today I noticed that Posen city registration cards are completely online

now! They provide a plenty of genealogical information (surnames, given

names, date of birth, place of birth, profession, movements, marriage date,

date of death, parents, spouses, children and so on). In many cases you get

information on three generations.

Reading is sometimes somewhat difficult.

See former GerSIG-postings about searching strategies!

The cards are ordered according to the Polish phonetical alphabet,

which differs from usual arrangements.

The register goes only until the letter P  http://e-kartoteka.net/index.php

- but further additions are announced in the Basia Database


Be careful: there are some bad transcriptions and not all links are correct!

For those who are not yet familiar with this source:

the link to the Posen (Poznan) city registration cards is:
