Search the Archives is designed to make the collections of state and other institutions archives available on the Internet. Now you can use them for free without leaving your home.
The website presents the data from the Integrated Archive Information System (ZoSIA) , where the state archives and other institutions describe the materials and store their digital copies.
We have also added there information about genealogical materials, previously prepared by the state archives in database "Programme for the Registration of Records from Parish and Civil Registration Offices" (PRADZIAD).
The first version of the website was released in 2009. It was available at szukajwarchiwach.pl 31 May 2021.
The current website szukajwarchiwach.gov.pl, was released on 8 June 2019 and is constantly being developed by the National Digital Archives.
Archival materials published on the website come from different historical periods. Part of them are in foreign languages, and part contain content which may be considered disturbing by some users (for example, related to military operations).
