Pomeranian Genealogical Association

PTG Pomorskie Towarzystwo Genealogiczne


Indexation of Church Records in Pomerania became one of the most important tasks accepted by the members of the Pomeranian Genealogical Association. Our members are committed to this time-consuming chore. It is a very scrupulous work, often requiring decent graphologist skills to decipher the hand-written and often German-language records. Occasionally, we are unable to correctly identify a recorded name and have to tag such an entry with a “?” mark. You can access the already completed indexes on our Web site at www.ptg.gda.pl
