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.

Information on the Suwalki project:

Indexing is progressing on an archive by archive basis and data entry is underway on the Jewish vital records for the towns in the Suwalki branch of the Polish State Archives.

After fundraising for each town has been completed and the data has been processed, it will become available on-line. See the Project Status page for the current status of the fundraising for the towns in the Suwalki project.

For more information on the Suwalki Archives project, please contact Archive Coordinator, Lillian Faffer.

For information about future Archives to be indexed, subscribe to the JRI-Poland mailing list and read the up-to-date reports.

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.
