Update to the Nasz Przeglad database on Jewishgen #general
The Warszawa Research Group embarked many years ago in a project to index
the death notices and memorial service notices >from the Polish-language
Jewish periodical Nasz Przeglad ("Our Review"). Nasz Przeglad was a
Polish-language Zionist newspaper, published daily in Warszawa >from March
1923 until September 1939.
The vast majority of the death notices are for Warszawa residents. However,
there were also notices for people in other cities in Poland, as well as in
other countries. It is believed that the out-of-country notices were usually
for people whose original residence was Warszawa, or who had family living
in Warszawa at the time that the notice was published. Out-of-country
notices were published for people living in places such as the United
States, Palestine, Sweden and Canada.
Nearly two years ago, we announced that the exciting news is that the images
were available on-line at https://polona.pl/ and the Warszawa Research Group
volunteers were linking the images. We have updated the file with more data
from found issues and more linked files. The database contains deathnotices >from 1923-1939. We will continue to link the files and make them
available to researchers.
The Nasz Preglad database can be searched using the Jewishgen Poland
Best of luck in your search.
