Information for authors and readers
Szanowni Państwo !

The Lublin Genealogical Society is proud to present you its publishing plans for 2015-2016. Our organization has been associating several dozen researchers and enthusiasts of genealogy, heraldry and historical demographics from the Lublin region and not only since 2006. In 2009, “Lubelskie TG” undertook the project of publishing its own continuous publication, a scientific journal that published once a year texts on broadly understood genealogy, knight and noble heraldry, archivistics (in connection with genealogical research) and statistics and historical demography. This magazine has an innovative formula on the market – it is not available in free sale, but published at the publisher’s expense and sent to the order of private persons and public institutions, especially science employees, state archives and scientific libraries (please send orders to the email address editorial). The goal that the Yearbook editors originally set for themselves was finally, with success, we think, achieved. Volumes I-VII gathered authors not only from the whole country, but also from abroad, who provided a varied theme of the published texts. The publishing house went to Polish and foreign libraries and individual recipients, gaining recognition and interest in the eyes of many. With the contents of previously published volumes, you can read on the journal’s website at:
