Records of immigrants from Eastern Europe
passing through London who had contact with the Polskie
Towarzystwo Emigracyjne (Polish Emigration Society) are
included in this database. The records provide
information such as birthplace, marital status, age,
religion, occupation, date of arrival in England,
marital status and number of children, address of
nearest living family member in Poland, the name of the
country to which the individual is intending to go
(almost always the USA or Canada) and the address in
London where the person resided.
Most of the persons named in these records were transit
passengers who, for a myriad of circumstances, sought
assistance or advice from the Polish Emigration Society.
The bulk of the individuals are ethnic Poles but there
is a noticeable number of Lithuanians listed as well.
There is a $3.00 fee for each record request.
