Re: All Krakow Mormon Records Indexed #general

Fred Davis <fdavis@...>

Recently, it was announced that -all- Krakow records that are on the Mormon
films have been indexed and are available on-line. This is an amazing
resource! I found out, only recently, that I have ancestors who were in
Krakow. Working between the indexes and the microfilms in Salt Lake City,
research is now incredibly quick and easy. The records are still in Polish
-- early ones in paragraph form, later ones in column form -- but
deciphering is very straightforward with a bit of education. And, if you
can make it to Salt Lake City for the July conference, there will be no
dearth of education in Polish records. I hope the Krakow Shtetl CO-OP
heroes will be there so we can all thank them!

All 73,711 Krakow records on the Mormon films have now been indexed and
are available to be searched at

Many thanks to Dan Hirschberg, Julian Schamroth and Steve Schamroth for
their help in creating indexes, and for extended records.
