Rzeszow birth, death records available or destroyed in war?

Hi, my great-grandfather came from Pobitno, which is now part of Rzeszow. Does anyone know if old birth and death records for Rzeszow or Pobitno still exist or if they were destroyed in the war? If they still exist, is there a main church amongst the numerous churches in Rzeszow where the information would be stored?

Hello 2772

I contacted my cousin who lives not to far from Rzeszow about your question and just got this response back from him....I hope that it helps!


This is the Town's Archives of Rzeszow. Look: ksiegi.pdf (down of this page). Look point 4.18. in this pdf plik: "KSIEGI URODZEN" -birth documents.

Pobitno 1890-1942.

Thank you so much for your help. Sadly, I don't speak Polish, but I have a friend who does. So, the document states that the vital records (birth, marriage, death records) for Pobitno still exist from 1890-1942? Does the document state where the records are kept? Are they in the Rzeszow town archive? What is the address for the town archive? Thanks again for any help that you can provide for me :)

Unfortunately I can't help you there. My Polish is still at a very elementary level. =( It was a relative of mine who knew of the link and did that initial search for me. Perhaps if you put out a plea on the translation thread of this forum someone can help you.

You can also try to use the email address on the page to see if the person on the other end knows English and could help.

My father and his family came from Bełżec in about 1913. At the time it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. I think this place is Gmina Bełżec south of Tomaszów Lubelskie, almost into Rzeszów wojwodstwo. Is there any one who lives in or near or has visited this town?
