Records and Archives in Poland

Here are the addresses of some of the state archive offices which will be useful for anyone interested in researching ancestry / genealogy in the west of Poland. Records such as birth, deaths and marriages for these locations and the towns and villages around them. Unfortunately, most of the staff will have difficulty in communicating with you in English, and the records will of course be either in Polish or German!
