Make your town’s records "Shtetl CO-OP ready"

The new initiative to speed up the indexing of the Jewish vital records
of Poland in the Mormon (LDS) microfilms.

Timing is everything…

Today you may not be able to volunteer to be a Shtetl CO-OP leader or offer to do data entry for the indices for your town’s records.

But you still can help in the all-over indexing process by making your town’s records, "Shtetl CO-OP ready." Here’s how!

The JGS of Toronto Copy Service has agreed to partner with JRI-Poland in a new initiative to speed up our massive indexing task. The goal of this new initiative is simple: To create a bank of index pages ready and waiting for data entry.

Here’s how it will work.

Researchers unable to lead a Shtetl CO-OP or volunteer their services can still put the wheels in motion by making tax-exempt contributions to cover the cost of photocopying the index pages from all the microfilms of Jewish vital records for their town. The price is $25 per film.

JRI-Poland would then try to organize a Shtetl CO-OP for the town and the contributor would be eligible to receive copies of the index pages and a spreadsheet file with the resulting database of indices.

There are two conditions:

  • This initiative is only for towns for which there are no existing indices in the JRI-Poland database.
  • The contribution must be for ALL the films for the town. For many towns, a donation of $100 or less will make your town "Shtetl CO-OP ready!"

 

Here are the steps you take:

  1. Advise Shtetl CO-OP Coordinator Hadassah Lipsius that you want to make a contribution to enable your town to be Shtetl CO-OP ready.
  1. Send your tax-exempt donation (of $25 per film)* to:

Jewish Records Indexing – Poland, Inc.
c/o Sheila Salo, Treasurer
5607 Greenleaf Road
Cheverly, MD 20785  USA

* To see how many films are available for your town, check the table below.

 

Here's the action JRI-Poland will take :

  1. Order will be passed to the JGS Toronto Copy Service.
  2. Microfilms will be ordered from Family History Library, Salt Lake City. Delivery of films to Toronto is usually four to six weeks.
  3. All available index pages will be photocopied. In circumstance where there are no index pages for marriages, ALL the marriage records will be photocopied. This only applies to marriages for which there are usually a small number in each year.
  4. When photocopying has been completed, JRI-Poland will make a special effort to get a Shtetl CO-OP launched or will seek volunteers to start on the data-entry.

 

Towns to be indexed

The following is a list of towns that do not have Shtetl CO-OPs and for which there are no indices to records currently in the JRI-Poland database. The number beside each town indicates the quantity of microfilms of Jewish vital records for the town. For more details about the films, the years they cover and the types of records included, please refer to "LDS Polish-Jewish Microfilms".
