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.

Rzeszˇw Polish State Archives (PSA) project
Indexing is proceeding on an archive by archive basis. Although all the records in an archive may be indexed, new registers are transferred each year from the Civil Records Offices to the archives. As the new registers are transferred, the Rzeszˇw project will index those as well.

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 Rzeszˇw project. Fundraising targets will be added as information on the cost of new data from each town project becomes available.

For the latest information about projects to index the records at other branches of the Polish State Archives, read the JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives project pages and subscribe to the JRI-Poland mailing list.

For more information on the records for your town(s) in the Rzeszˇw Archives project, please contact Archive Coordinator Eden Joachim at esjoachim@optonline.net.
