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.

Please read these instructions.

Indexing is proceeding on an archive by archive basis. Data entry is now complete for the Żychlin Books of Residents. The Kutno Books of Residents project is now underway. Other projects will follow.

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 Kutno branch of the Polish State Archives.

Kutno 1830 - 1840 Death records

On June 15, 2001, the extracts to more than 1,600 deaths in the 1830 to 1840 death register from the Jewish community of Kutno were added to the JRI-Poland database. The story behind this project is a unique one and once more illustrates how cooperation between dedicated individuals and important resources all come together for the benefit of researchers.

Several years ago, private researcher Petje Schroder (Lodz, Poland) volunteered to fully extract and enter the data from these records as a contribution to the work of the Ronald S. Lauder Genealogy Project at the Jewish Historical Institute (JHI). It was Petje's way of expressing her appreciation for the cooperation received from Yale Reisner and his staff in the course of her activities. All researchers with an interest in Kutno and nearby towns and villages are the beneficiaries of Petje's generosity.
