stupid question but would the records be in poland or germany im confused my grandad was born in 1914?
any help would be appreciated i have already emailed the polish state archives but have had no luck.
Civil registration records for years 1874-1911 are in a state archives in Bydgoszcz. Their address is:
Archiwum Państwowe w Bydgoszczy
85-009 Bydgoszcz, ul. Dworcowa 65
0048 52 339-54-09
Tell them you are interested in a set (zespół)1620 Urząd Stanu Cywilnego Chojnice
They may charge you for doing the research so give them as much details as you have.
Later records in a local civil registry office in Chojnice (you will have to prove them you are a direct descendant of a person born in 1914.
Their address is:
Urząd Miejski w Chojnicach
Urząd Stanu Cywilnego
