Finding Aid to Online Langfuhr Civil Records, 1911-1914
by Rodney Eisfelder
Civil records from Langfuhr for the period 06-Jun-1911 to 31-Dec-1914 are now freely available online. Accessing them is a multi-stage process. First, you have to register with http://www.genpol.com/ giving a username, password, and email address. Then, you can login at http://metryki.genbaza.pl/auth/index with the email address and password. Having logged in, select the Gdansk archive "AP_Gdansk." Then choose "Wrzeszcz_4400" (direct link, once logged in). This gives a list of 30 volumes to choose from, the contents of which are described below.

This set of civil records from the Langfuhr Standesamt/Wrzeszcz USC has not been indexed (apart from handwritten partial indexes on volumes 11, 20, 21), but our Danzig Database, searchable via both the JewishGen Poland Database and Germany Database, includes Jewish birth records for this period (indexed from FHL copies of Gatermann microfilms). The information in the two sources might be different. If you find a record from this period in the Danzig Database and it mentions Langfuhr, note the registration number (number after "r") in the "Source" field, then look in the volume listed below that includes that number. The number is typically written at the top of each civil record.

Prior to 06-Jun-1911, the Danzig Standesamt was used for civil registrations, see our finding aid here.
