Note: Slupca Genealogy was originally intended to be an index of Slupca county (Polish: powiat słupecki). Thanks to the Poznan Project , my cousin was able to locate some of our Wawrzynski and Auerbach (also spelled Orbach and Ohrbach) ancestors in Kalisz county (Polish: powiat kaliski). It is easier to find all our people if I index the parishes, I did that with the newest parish. Because I do not want to change the name of this website nor do I want to start another website for another county, I am including the Kalisz parishes in this index. The index has been slightly modified to include a county column. The families I am researching have moved around quite a bit so I do not know how many parishes in Kalisz county I will be indexing nor do I know what other parishes in other counties I will be indexing. I plan on eventually returning to index Slupca county. I hope this doesn’t cause too much confusion.

 

The Province column has been replaced with links to the images, if they are available online.  All these records are in what was once called Poznan province, now Wielkopolskie province.  All the linked images are available on the Polish State Archives website here: http://szukajwarchiwach.pl/

 

Slupca County, Poland is 70 kilometers east of Poznan. At different times it has been a part of both Prussia and Russia. As boundaries and borders change, or are renamed, parts of it has been in Poznan Province, Kingdom of Poland, Eastern Greater Poland, Kalisz District, Konin District, and is currently in Wielkopolskie Province. Slupca is the name of a town, parish, and county. The Family History Library has the parish of Slupca listed as part of Poznan Province (Poland, Poznan, Slupca). Because the FHL Films are the microfilms I have indexed, I have used their classification system.

The vital records were recorded by both the church and by the civil authorities. There are usually multiple versions of the same record, which is very handy if one record is difficult to read. It is common to find Civil Registration records written in multiple books, so there will often be more than one civil record for the same event. If one Civil Registration record is blurred or ripped, it is handy to have another to refer to. When there are multiple Civil Registration books covering the same time period, often one of those books will continue on in Polish after the other book has switched to Russian (usually in 1868). Because the Polish is easier to decipher than the Russian, it is worth the effort to see if any of the other Civil Registration books is in Polish.

 

The Roman Catholic records for Slupca province are written in Latin, Polish, and Russian.  It would appear that researching those records would be overwhelming because of the language barriers.  Those language barriers are not as daunting as they first appear.  There are several books to help the translating process.

I have used the English alphabet instead of the Polish, so there are no accent marks (diacritics).

Indexed parishes from Slupca County: 

 

Ciazen Parish, Poznan, Poland

The microfilmed records end in the year 1884 and don’t resume again until 1945, which is too late for this index.  The microfilmed records begin in the year 1562.  Many of these older records are hard to read and most do not use last names.  I started this index in 1670, but if you have ancestors in this parish you may want to look at the older records.  There are numerous gaps in the microfilmed records.  Microfilm 1898179 also includes lists of communicants and marriage announcements (they look like marriage banns), which don’t include much genealogy data but may be interesting if you have ancestors in this parish.

Kowalewo Parish, Poznan, Poland

Roman Catholic Birth Index

Years 1808-1819, 1822-1865, 1873-1879, 2630 records

Roman Catholic Marriage Index

Years 1808-1819, 1823-1866, 1873-1879, 606 records

Roman Catholic Death Index

Years 1808-1819, 1823-1865, 1873-1872, 1490 records

Many of the microfilmed Kowalewo records are in poor condition, particularly through the 1820s.  I indexed what I could read.  The records are solely in Russian 1869-1872, without the names written in Polish in brackets.  Those records were not indexed.  The microfilmed records end in the year 1879 and don’t resume again until 1916 (birth records) and 1947 (marriage and death records), which are too late for this index.

 

Lad Parish, Poznan, Poland

The microfilmed records for Lad start too late for this index.  Birth records begin the year 1916, marriage and death records the year 1945.  

 

Mlodojewo Parish, Poznan, Poland

Roman Catholic Birth Index

Years 1773-1904, 8584 records

Birth years 1796-1807, 1813-1817, and 1819 not indexed because they weren't on the microfilm.

Ostrowite Parish, Poznan, Poland

Roman Catholic Birth Index

Years 1761-1867, 1892-1904, 8965 records

Roman Catholic Marriage Index

Years 1779-1867, 1892-1904, 1563 records

Roman Catholic Death Index

Years 1761-1867, 1892-1920, 5980 records

Records from the missing years are written only in Russian cursive.  There are no alternative sources in Latin or Polish for double-checking my work.  Because I occasionally have difficulties differentiating between Russian lowercase letters, the indexes from these years would be partial, incomplete, or inaccurate.  For this reason, I am not indexing these years at this time.

 

Slupca Parish, Poznan, Poland

Zagorow Parish, Poznan Poland

Roman Catholic Birth Index

Years 1795-1884, 1890-1904, 27,591 records

Microfilmed records missing birth years 1885-1889.

Roman Catholic Marriage Index

Years 1795-1904, 5867 records

Roman Catholic Death Index

Years 1806-1912, 1919-1920, 19,554 records

Microfilmed records missing death years 1913-1918.

The Zagorow church records begin in 1593.  However, many are written in heavy ink and make it difficult to read both sides of the page.  If your ancestors are from Zagorow you may want to rent the microfilms that cover the early years and see if you can find additional information.
