Attention Tykocin, Poland Researchers #general
The Jewish Records Indexing - Poland (JRI-PL) database has recently been
updated to incorporate Birth, Marriage, and Death indices for Tykocin.
These 850 record indices were added as a result of the JRI-PL / Polish
State Archives (PSA) initiative at the Bialystok Archives. These are
the only records for Tykocin that reside at the Bialystok Branch of the
PSA and that have not previously been microfilmed by the LDS Church. To
learn more about the Bialystok Archive project go to
< http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/psastat1.htm#Bialy >. Then click
on "Project Details" for more information.
The database can be searched by surname at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jriplweb.htm > . If the search is
successful, you can order the original record directly >from the PSA.
Special instructions for ordering documents >from PSA can be accessed at
< http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/psainst.htm >.
In addition to these records, there are ten (10) microfilms available from
the LDS Family History Library that contain records for Tykocin. Many
Shtetl CO-OPs for other towns have been successful in transliterating and
indexing records available >from LDS microfilms. Tykocin has a Shtetl CO-OP,
but needs help to get these ten microfilms processed for inclusion in the
JRI-PL database. Please contact Richard Hoffman, Tykocin Shtetl CO-OP
Coordinator, if you are interested. You can find Richard's contact
information at < http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jri-plin.htm > by
scrolling down to Tykocin.
JRI-PL hopes that this data will be helpful to all Tykocin researchers.
