Warsaw 1808-1825 vital records (instructions)

Post by logan »

Warsaw civil (all religions) birth, marriage, and death records for 1808-1825 are viewable (not searchable) online as thousands of scans on szukajwarchiwach.pl. The records are organized by district (cyrkul). You might be able to learn the district where your relatives lived from other sources, such as later vital records or the homeowners' lists searchable here.

Links to the images begin at:

District I: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/183/0/str ... bJednostki

District II: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/184/0/str ... bJednostki

District III: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/185/0/str ... bJednostki

District IV: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/186/0/str ... bJednostki

District V: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/187/0/str ... bJednostki

District VI: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/188/0/str ... bJednostki

District VII: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/189/0/str ... bJednostki

District VIII: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/72/190/0/str ... bJednostki

After selecting one of the above, click on a link of interest for which the number in the rightmost column is not 0 (which indicates there are no scans for that group of records). Then click the "Digital copies" or "Skany" tab at the top to see thumbnail images. At this point, you can browse through all the images or try to find names of interest in the handwritten indices that are usually on the last few images. Either way, when you find a thumbnail that you want to enlarge, click the thumbnail to see a medium-size version. While viewing a medium-size image, you can click on the right or left side of the image (an arrow icon will appear under your cursor) to display the next or previous medium-size image. Click the rectangle icon in the bottom right of a medium-size image to see the full-size version (which might not fit entirely on your screen, so click and drag the full-size images with your mouse to reveal off-screen sections). While viewing a full-size image, you can click the links just above the image, on the right or left, to display the next or previous full-size image.

Here is an example of a full-size image:

Thanks very much to the State Archives in Warsaw for making these scans available.
