Genbaza and Indeksy.net: Finding your Ancestors in Central Poland

November 5 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm CDT


Genbaza and her sister site, indeksy.net, are Polish genealogy websites that present scans of records for researchers and family historians interested in much of Central Poland. Historically, this area was inhabited by Poles who lived in the Kingdom of Poland, under Russia’s jurisdiction. Both Genbaza and Indeksy.net are active, growing websites with new scans of records at least weekly. Join us as we get an overview of how to use these sites and the treasures they hold.
