Dear Ms. Florimonte,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Records Relating to the Activities of the Einwandererzentralstelle (EWZ) in the National Archives Collection of Foreign Records Seized (Record Group 242) that contains some records related to ethnic Germans from the Galicia region of Poland who were resettled by the Nazis during World War II. These records are part of the subseries EWZ52 (Poland) in National Archives Microfilm Publication A3342 from the so-called biographic records of the Berlin Document Center. These records and their associated finding aids have not been digitized. Please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) at firstname.lastname@example.org for access to and information about them.
We also located the series Military Petitions for Naturalization, 6/29/1918-8/3/1918 from the Records of District Courts of the United States (Record Group 21) that includes some petitions from immigrants who were from towns and provinces in Austria-Hungary, including Galicia. These records have not been digitized. Please contact the National Archives at Chicago (RM-CH) at email@example.com for additional assistance with these records.
For more information, please review Resources for Genealogists and Family Historians on NARA’s website.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2 and RM-CH. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
Please note that original EWZ documents were returned to the Federal Republic of Germany. Please contact the Bundesarchiv for additional information about these and related records.
More information about using EWZ records for genealogical research is available online, and you may find some useful resources on sites like the Polish Genealogical Society of Connecticut & the Northeast’s Beginners Guide to Polish Genealogy and Polish Ancestry.
Finally, FamilySearch has a number of wikis that may be useful for your research, including Subcarpathian (Podkarpackie) Voivodeship, Poland Genealogy, Austrian Poland (Galicia), Austro-Hungarian Empire Genealogy, and Poland Online Genealogy Records.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
