Dear friends of the Poznan Project,
As every two months, just a few notes on the progress of our Poznan/Posen
Marriage Indexing Project.
On May 31, a new layout was created for the page with presentation of the
Project database contents. Please find it under:
Now, not only the parishes present in the database are listed but also
those for which volunteers are still "wanted". The status of each parish
is shortly described and studying the progress of each area you are
interested in is facilitated.
In future, the volunteers will only be annotated in that site and no more
on the long list which exists now.
The following new parishes have appeared over the last two months:
Catholic: Babimost, Lisewo Koœcielne, Gêbice, Kruszwica, Szubin,
Kleszczewo, Izdebno, Ryszewko, Kleczew, Niepart, Kunowo, Sroda, Poniec,
Legowo-Tarnowo, Lukowo, Keblowo, Roznowo, Ptaszkowo, Sadki
Lutheran: Gniezno/Gnesen, K³ecko/Kletzko, Witkowo, Szyd³owiec/Schidlowitz,
Poznan Holy Cross/Posen-Kreuzkirche
Some additions have been made to parishes present in the database for a
longer time already.
Also, a major rectification has been done in order to unify some aspects
of the format etc. - this will not much affect the users but will
certainly make it easier for me to include new parishes in future.
More and more people are reporting finding their ancestors and relatives
in the database. This is due to the growing number of records which now
approaches 150,000 - and 151 Catholic parishes are now included (29
Lutheran). The percentage of Catholic records covered from the Project
timeframe is close to 1/4 now. Please note that the areas from which
emigration was most massive in the 19th century are actually even better
covered, usually in about 1/3 of records already indexed. On the other
hand, we still have very little from the Southern districts.
I wish all of you successful hits in your future Poznan Project database
Thank you very much for adding new indexes to our database.
Also, I appreciate all the donations sent to support the Project and all
new declarations to index parishes and/or providing scans of microfilms.

With best regards,
