Pomeranian Heritage Tour Update  After three years of delays, thirty-five traveled to Pomerania from May 23 to June 4. If you want to see what the group enjoyed, check the Pommerntag Facebook page.  Photos and updates were posted daily.

In the March 2022 Rundschreiben, it was announced the web site Metryki.GenBaza.pl was closing.
As of 3 March 2022. That is no longer true.
Here is the latest information from Metryki.GenBaza.pl : (translated from Polish to English)
 Metryki.GenBaza.pl will NOT be closed
1. The commitment of many genealogy enthusiasts has made it possible to keep the site running.
2. All public resources will from now on be available without login.
3. Catalog structure has been changed.
4. Portal has been updated to the newest standards and will be improved.
We have plans for other very interesting improvements and innovations such as a search engine for catalogs.
We have also started a donation for the maintenance of a new server. https://zrzutka.pl/y3pp4t.
Launched portal https://indeksy.net/news.php will be oriented at indexing the GenBase resources.
If you use Metryki.GenBaza.pl to read German churchbooks, keep checking the web site for further updates.

Tour of Pomerania

The Pomeranian Heritage Tour Group gathered in front of the
Pommersches Landesmuseum in Greifswald, Germany in May 2017.
The museum specializes in the history of Pomerania.
Tours of northern Germany and Poland, in what was once Pomerania,
were most recently conducted in May 2015 and May 2017. Enjoy some photos of the trips below.
