Indices for previously unavailable records

The goal of the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland milestone agreement with the Polish State Archives is to index all Jewish vital records more than 100 years old in the Polish State Archives that are not included in the microfilm collection of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons). Copies of these records are available from the Polish State Archives. Where such sources are available, Jewish Records Indexing – Poland is also creating indices of Census records for the towns in the Sanok Archives.

Access the special instructions regarding the order form.

Please read these instructions.

Indexing is proceeding on an archive by archive basis.

As the fundraising target is reached for each town, the data is processed and the information from the indices will be eligible to be added to the on-line database. See the Project Status page for the current fundraising status for the towns in the Sanok project.

For the latest information about projects to index the records at other branches of the Polish State Archives, read the JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives project pages and subscribe to the JRI-Poland mailing list.

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.
