JRI - POLAND: POLISH STATE ARCHIVES PROJECT

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.

Access the special instructions regarding the order form.
Please read these instructions.

Read about the up-to-date status of the JRI-Poland / PSA project.

Siedlce Polish State Archives (PSA) project:

Indexing is proceeding on an archive by archive basis and data entry is now almost complete for the many towns with Jewish vital records in the Siedlce branch of the Polish State Archives.

As the fundraising target is reached for each town, the data is processed and the information from the indices will become available on-line.  See the Project Status Page  for the current fundraising status for the towns in the Siedlce project.

The Unique Jewish Vital Records of Wegrów

Until 1825, Jewish births, marriages and deaths in the Kingdom of Poland were registered in the civil transcripts.   These records were typically patronymic  with few surnames.   Starting in 1826, the registrations of Jewish births, marriages and deaths were kept separately and surnames were included in the records of virtually all of the many hundreds of towns.   These registers generally have yearly indices, listed by surname. 

Among the hundreds of towns in Poland for which there are Jewish vital records, Wegrów is the only one in which the annual indices, starting in 1826,do not contain surnames.  While the actual birth, marriage, and death records include the family names, these surnames were not included in the birth indices until 1872 and death indices until 1856.  Surnames in Marriage indices were sporadic until 1856.


Without surnames, it is impossible to add the indices to the JRI-Poland database.  As a result, two special initiatives are underway to extract more than 20,000 missing surnames from the Wegrów records and add them to the indices.

 

1.      Records microfilmed by the LDS (types/years)

Surnames are being inserted into the database using graphic images on CD provided by the LDS. 

2.      Records not filmed by the LDS (types/years)

The work is being carried out by archivists in the Siedlce branch working directly for Jewish Records Indexing  - Poland .

 Wegrów, the Crossroads Town

The Wegrów Jewish community included more than 100 neighboring towns and villages.   Jews of these towns registered their life events in Wegrów.  Click on the map to examine the neighboring towns, as well as a list of towns included in the Wegrow records.

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.
