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.

Łowicz Polish State Archives (PSA) project

Indexing is proceeding on an archive by archive basis and data entry is now up-to-date for the towns with Jewish vital records in the Łowicz branch of the Polish State Archives.

As the fundraising target is reached for each town, the data is processed and the indices will become available on-line. See the Project Status page for the current fundraising status for the towns in the Łowicz archives project. Fundraising targets will be added as information on the cost of each town project becomes available.

For more information on the records for your town(s) in the Lowicz Archives project, please contact Archive Coordinator Roni Liebowitz at roni19@optonline.net.
