Szukajwarchiwach.pl is a free, online database for the various National and State Archives of Poland as well as a few other institutions (listed below). It was created by the National Digital Archive. You can search for civil registrations and parish records/registers throughout Poland and the database specifies the archive, the collection name & dates, and images for all records in that collection. (No index.)

Material on Szukajwarchiwach.pl is free to download, copy, and distribute.

If you already know the archive where the records are located (from searching at PRADZIAD), you can use the Advanced Search option and filter by “Archive” with a drop down menu of Archives. (Other filters exist as well.)

They have a published guide called, “How to use digitized records on the Polish State Archives’ website.”
