Alternative Town Name List

Throughout the history of Central Europe, the boundaries separating the nations surrounding Poland were constantly changing. This meant that different names and terminology were used to refer to given towns, cities, counties and provinces. These political divisions represent key pieces of information which can be used to locate Catholic Parishes in Poland which created sacramental records for your ancestors.

To help in the process, some of the town names which appear within the records of St. Mary's Church have been cross referenced to provide assistance in locating Polish Catholic Church records. This list will be updated as new information is located, so check back!
