Random Records

We've become spoiled in this digital age that so many records are relatively easy to find and access via the web. But there are still some records are so hard to find.

That's certainly the case for many European records, where you still must know the exact location of your ancestor in order to find their records.

For that reason, I sometimes share information from a source that isn't easily accessible. Someone may be searching online for an ancestor's name someday, and they might find it here.

In the nearly 100% likelihood that you are not looking for any of the people below, there's still an important point here. Consider alternate sources that may provide what you need. This information is from a page of a book recording Protestant confirmations in the area of Bydgoszcz, Poland. It contains names, birth locations, and birth dates for the confirmands. It would therefore may be a good substitute should you not be able to find a birth record, or if you're trying to tie your immigrant ancestor to their place of birth. A birth date and year would help verify it's the right person.

Here are some confirmands from 1903, along with their dates of birth:
