Warszawa Registration by Cyrkul/Districts

Warszawa was separated into various districts or Cyrkuli. The dividing lines of these districts varied over time. Each inner city district maintained their own vital record registration, however there were periods of time were several districts combined their vital registration together. The following maps which are published in the book "The Jews in Warsaw" edited by Wladyslaw T. Batoszewski and Antony Polonsky © 1991, Basil Blackwell Ltd. show the district borders over different time periods.

Surviving records less than 100 years old are held in the Civil Records Offices (Urzad Stanu Cywilnego) of each town.

For information on the 20th century records available for your town, visit the Routes to Roots Foundation website, click on the 'SEARCH DATABASE' button (on the right side) and enter the town name. Look for the town name in the Repository/City column of the search results. There are typically links to lists of available births, marriage and death records for the town.

Note, however, the Routes to Roots Foundation database may indicate turn of the century records that have already been transferred to the appropriate branch of the Polish State Archives where they can be indexed for the JRI-Poland database.
