The vicinities of Kraków were characterized by favourable natural conditions (e. g. good soil, hydrographic network, developed tract/road network. The proximity of the urban agglomeration and main tracks was a reason for a considerable mobility of peasants from the villages lacated in the Kraków vicinity. Registration in the register books in the local parishes was introduced relatively early (e. g. in Rudawa parish baptisims and marriages from the 70s of the 16th century). The present knowledge about Modern parish register books is unsatisfactory and the data provided by archives and studies show divergences and need to be verified with the actual state in parishes. For these sources are most often original documents stored on the premises of particular parishes. On the other hand, 19th century registers can usually be found in archives. The State Archive in Kraków holds micrifilms of only several rural parishes from the Old Polish period (e. g. parish register books of Raciborowice parish from the years 1604-1797), which were made at the beginning of the 70s of the 20th century. However, scarce originals of the parish registers from the period are preserved in the Archive of the Metropolitan Curia in Kraków (e. g. baptismal register books of Bolechowice parish from the years 1593-1643). The Mormon Church Central Library, in turn, of all the parishes in question holds only the microfilms of the register certificates from Raciborowice parish. The preliminary analysis of the state of preservation of the parish registers from the Kraków vicinity proves that it is possible to undertake their comparative studies with the register certificates from Kraków parishes. The initiative of the digitalization of the Modern register books kept in parish archives has been undertaken by the "Crown of Northern Kraków" Society, embracing seven muniocipalities from the vicinity of Kraków
