FREE CENSUS - HERITAGE QUEST - THIS IS THE ONE YOU SHOULD GO TO FIRST - free for Cuyahoga County Library card holders and Cleveland Public Library card holders. It may also be free at other libraries across the country as well if they subscribe to Heritage Quest. Check your local library website to see if it appears in their research databases. Heritage Quest has the census for Cuyahoga County for 1820, 1860-1880, 1900-1920, and 1940. You can search for free if you have a Cuyahoga County Public Library Card. Go to: http://www.cuyahogalibrary.org/Research/Resources-A-Z.aspx and click on "research", then Electronic Resources A-Z", then "Genealogy", then "Heritage Quest." Enter your library card number and password when asked. Or, you can do the same at Cleveland Public Library's website at www.cpl.org. Heritage Quest has the best search tools available. You can do a general search, advanced search, search by year, county, name, age, sex, race, and birthplace - any combination of the above. So, if you can't find who you are looking for with a surname search because the surname is misspelled, you can just enter their first name, an age range, and Germany for place of birth. Everyone with that first name, age and born in Germany will appear. Play around with this - you can do any number of different combinations.

At this site you can either scroll down and browse through their collections, OR, you can search in the upper left-hand corner. Enter any street name you are interested in and browse the results. Pay attention to those with the "Photographer" labeled as "City of Cleveland Ohio". Most of those photos were taken by the "Cleveland Board of Zoning Appeals." The Cleveland Board of Zoning Appeals took photos of each and every house/building that applied for action before the Board of Zoning Appeals. For instance search for "West 25th" or "West 65th" or "Lorain Avenue", typed just like that. Search for your childhood street! You might just hit it lucky.

The first stage of work is to set up a site that provides an overview of the status of digital parish registers in the German church archives. The second phase, from July 2008, is intended to make them available in digital form online. The records will deal with individuals documented in parish registers between 1550 and 1850.

'Wyszukiwanie' = Searching
Please write in 'Miejscowosc' (town) the name of the parish, and click on 'Szukaj' = search, so you have almost all about the availability of the church book years in this parish/church, and/or in the local diocese archive, together with full postal address of the parish, local diocese might be researched with Polish internet. One ammendment from author Stan, but maybe important, from the second remark in Polish under the 'Search': if you see in the line 'Ksiegi parafii' - 'Parish church books' only one date (year) with Narodzin (Birts), Slubow (Marriages), Zgonow (Deaths), it means that they have ALL church books of this kind from that year till today,
