Searching the Częstochowa Archives

Whether you are tracing your family history, conducting some genealogical research or obtaining the necessary information to claim your right to Polish citizenship, you can now obtain records from the Częstochowa Municipal Archives with the help of staff and students at the Jan Długosz University in Częstochowa.

Dr Julia Dziwoki (pic left) is an archivist and lecturer in the Department of Historical Methodology and Archives in the Faculty of Philology and History of the Jan Długosz University.

Within the University, Dr Dziwoki has now established the Centre for the Genealogical Research of Częstochowa Jews.

Together with her students, her Centre can create a genealogical tree of your family or simply search the archives for birth, wedding and/or death certificates of your family’s Częstochowa ancestors.

To take advantage of the wonderful service, email whatever information you have regarding family members (first names, family name, dates, etc.) to Dr Dziwoki at:
