Welcome To PolishRoots
Polish Genealogy Reference

Search and Explore our references to Polish History and Genealogical Reference. Our Site is always FREE, but Sign up for special features.



PolishRoots covers all areas that were historically part of the Polish Commonwealth, from the 16th through the 18th centuries, throughout the years of partitions by Prussia, Russia, and Austria, through its rebirth in 1918, subsequent domination during World War II and post-War occupation, to its present freedom and struggle for independence through the latter 20th Century.

We also promote Polonia, areas of Polish presence throughout the world regardless of ethnicity, religion, or political views. We cover everything Polish whether you have ancestry there for 500+ years, or you shop at a Polish deli down the street. We place no limitations!
