Civil Registration information in Berlin and Poland

Civil registration information for the former East Prussia can be obtained through the Standesamt I Berlin Rückerstrasse 9 in 10119 Berlin, Germany. This civil registration office has at its disposal an index called "Standesregister und Personenstandsbücher der Ostgebiete im Standesamt I Berlin". Two more indexes called "Kirchenbücher und Personenstandregister in polnischen Staatsarchiven" (church books and civil registration indexes in Polish State Archives) and "Deutsche Personenstandsbücher und Personenstandseinträge von Deutschen in Polen" (Civil Registration records and - entires of Germans in Poland) give further information about ancestors who lived in East Prussia.
