The Poland Project is a project for WikiTreers 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.
