Biography


A biography is a history of a person’s life. In a biography you may find the individual’s birth, marriage, and death information and the names of parents, children, or other family members. Use the information carefully because there may be inaccuracies. There are a few biographical sources for Poland, but these include only the most notable citizens.

Some brief biographies have been published in collective biographies, sometimes called biographical encyclopedias or dictionaries. Usually these include biographies of only prominent or well-known citizens of Poland. Others feature biographies of specific groups of people, such as Protestant pastors.

A significant collection of Polish biographies compiled from the many biographical works that have been published is:

  • Polskie archiwum biograficzne.(Polish biographical archive). München: K.G. Saur 199-. (FHL fiche 6109252–275.)
