Each town description contains a listing of the following information on the town itself, and on the parishes that existed there:
Below the first line, alternative Polish (normal font) and German (italics) names may be listed, as well as the information about cities being seats of district authorities in years 1887-1919.
After the general town description, its parishes and civil registries are listed. The following detailed info is provided for them:
For Catholic parishes in the Prussian province of Poznan:
For Lutheran communities in the Prussian province of Poznan:
For Civil registries in the Prussian province of Poznan, as well as for all parishes and communities of the former Russian territory:
The next section lists the present location of records known to the author. For some localities or particular parishes you may find nothing but their general description - this indicates that there are probably no existing records.
Each particular place where the records are held is listed in bold
Birth or baptism (B), marriage (M) and death (D) records are provided, according to what the particular archive or parish possesses. The initial 'i' stands for alphabetical indexes (rather than actual records). Those are, as a rule, listed only if they fill the gaps in the actual records.
'Open' dates (like 1880-) mean that either (in case of RC parishes) all records starting from the point provided up to present are available there, or (for civil registry records or civil duplicates) that the 100-year old records are given each year to the archive from the site provided in the previous section, and you can expect them to end at about 1898-1900 in the archive (this is according to the Polish law).
Some civil records are also split to 'City' and 'Land' records. In the former, events from the locality itself were registered, while in the 'Land' records they registered people living in the surrounding area.
The LDS microfilms section starts just afterwards and it lists the
particular portions of records
which are located on microfilms (microfilms numbers written in the bold
style; 'items' numbers, i.e. microfilm section
numbers also provided).
