The Poland Project exists to encourage people of Polish ancestry to record their heritage. The Poland Project is also a project for WikiTreers who are interested in improving the profiles of early Polish people and their descendants. This project serves as a forum for researchers and descendants of all people born in Poland at any point in history; anyone interested in Poland or Polish ancestry may join! Our mission is: to develop, improve and add sources to profiles of those who lived in Poland or have Polish ancestry; to build a library of information and resources; to facilitate collaboration among our members with Polish interests; to create a regional project that will help WikiTree attract members from other countries; to highlight the diversity of the Polish culture and people.

If you want to designate that your have Polish ancestry, you can place this sticker on profiles, including your own if you wish. If you have other Slavic Ancestry like Russian, Czech, Galician and so on, they have their own stickers you may want to use.
