More than 28 million scans available in Search the Archives service.

We would like to inform you that until now we have added more than 28 million scans of the historic documentation from the state archives’ resources to the Search the Archives service.

The total number of the available materials has thus exceeded 28 million.

Created and developed by the National Digital Archives, the Search the Archives service is the largest on-line source of historical documentation. In addition to the registry office records and registers from thousands of Polish towns, censuses (of, among others, Kraków, Poznań and Łódź) and family archives, which constitute the basic source of information for research on family history, the service offers an opportunity to view, among others, city files, documentation of the Polish Government in exile, Capital City Reconstruction Office, “Radio Free Europe” Polish Broadcasting Station, and documentation concerning Nazi concentration camps and Łódź ghetto.
