This page is dedicated to the province of Dolnoslaskie,southwest Poland which was created in 1999 from four old Polish provinces: Wroclawskie, Jeleniogorskie, Legnickie and Walbrzyskie. The name of Dolnoslaskie was taken from the name of region, where the province lies: Dolny Slask (Polish), Lower Silesia (English), Niederschlesien (German). Prior the World War II this part of Poland belonged to Germany. After the WWII the names of towns and other places were converted from their former German to their present Polish equivalent, archival resources are devided between Polish and German archieves, some of them were burnt or lost during and after the WWII. Some genealogically valuable places like cemeteries, churches and villages do not exist. German people, who lived there before WWII was expelled across the border to the Germany. Poles, Ukrainians, Lemkos from eastern provinces were resettled after WWII in the deserted towns and villages. That's why genealogical research is very difficult in this region.
