Corrections to microfilm description in the
Family History Library (Mormon) Catalogue

At the 18th Annual Summer Seminar on Jewish Genealogy in Los Angeles, Mr. Kahlile Mehr, FHL Collection Development Specialist for the Former Soviet Union provided the address for informing the FHL of errors in their catalog. Mr. Mehr explained that at the time of the original microfilming of Polish records, the cataloging work was done by volunteers and were thus more prone to error. The FHL will correct cataloging errors brought to their attention. Corrected versions will appear in the next edition of the catalog. Send corrections to FHL@LDSChurch.org with the subject line "Catalog Corrections." (When corrections pertain to countries in the Former Soviet Union, please copy Mr. Mehr at: MehrKB@LDSChurch.org. This does NOT apply to microfilms of Jewish vital records of Poland.) Please provide the full description of the film as it currently appears in the Family History Library Catalog along with a detailed description of what you have discovered. Include the FHL Film Number and Item Number for the segment that is incorrectly described in the catalog. The FHL has provided the following format for this information:

Surviving records less than 100 years old are held in the Civil Records Offices (Urzad Stanu Cywilnego) of each town.

For information on the 20th century records available for your town, visit the Routes to Roots Foundation website, CLICK ON THE 'SEARCH DATABASE' button (on the right side) and enter the town name. Look for the town name in the Repository/City column of the search results. There are typically links to lists of available births, marriage and death records for the town.

Note, however, the Routes to Roots Foundation database may indicate turn of the century records that have already been transferred to the appropriate branch of the Polish State Archives where they can be indexed for the JRI-Poland database.
