The National Archives in Kraków was founded September 2, 1878 as The State Archives of Kraków. It was renamed a Polish National Archive in 2012 due to its size and valuable content.

 

Many genealogical records including vital records such as birth, marriage, and death (both civil and parish) as well as some censuses and other records have been digitized and can be searched online at the government portal Szukajwarchiwach.
