Confirmation of nationality using information from the household books of village councils

Are you sure that you have Jewish, Polish or other roots. You have in your hands certificates (extracts from the book of the synagogue or the Roman Catholic church) from the archive confirming the fact of the birth of your grandfather or grandmother in the pre-revolutionary period. But there is a problem – the consul requires at least one document of the Soviet period, in which the necessary nationality is recorded (and this concept was introduced into everyday use in the USSR in the 1920s) and in the civil registry office records in this column “Ukrainian” / “Russian” is written .. . Dead end? Fatally? No chance? Far from a fact. Very often, such a welcome entry can be found in household books of village councils, the official extract from which has full legal force for embassies and consulates. More details here >>>

Informative census of the Russian Empire in 1897 for genealogy

Мы начинаем публиковать краткие обзоры архивных фондов, которые могут быть полезны в генеалогических исследованиях. И начинаем мы как раз с тех фондов, которые многие недооценивают. А ведь некоторые из них гораздо более информативны, чем метрические книги церквей, костелов и синагог. Сегодня мы представляем обзор переписных листов первой Всероссийской переписи населения 1897 года.

Польша продолжает удивлять возможностями Карты поляка

МВД Польши рассчитывает, что в течение ближайших 10 лет в Польшу приедет около 200 тыс. поляков благодаря поправкам к закону о Карте поляка. Об этом сообщает со ссылкой на польские СМИ. Отмечается, что новоприбывшим можно будет получать гражданство уже через год своего проживания в Польше в случае наличия такой карты. При этом в течение первых 9 месяцев они будут получать помощь в размере 600 злотых, что эквивалентно 140 евро. Кроме этого, закон теперь обещает полякам, проживающим за пределами Польши, те же права, что и гражданам страны. В случае необходимости это позволит провести быструю эвакуацию лиц с Картами поляка. Как отметил депутат правящей партии ПиС Михал Дворчик, уже в ближайшие недели будут проводиться консультации относительно закона о репатриациях. Сейчас положения закона находятся на стадии разработки. Благодаря этому закону поляки смогут получать помощь, даже если проживают за пределами Польши на территории бывших республик СССР.
