Has anyone done much research on Przemysl?? I am looking for
info on a family named Schatzmann >from there.
There is good news for researchers with an interest in the records
of the town of Przemysl and other towns whose Jewish vital records
are stored in the Przemysl branch of the Polish State Archives.

As a first step in the project to index the records in the Przemsyl
branch a detailed report of all the available records has been made
by the staff. This report includes the number of each type of record
for each year for each town.

The report has been mailed to Jewish Records Indexing - Poland.
After it has been received, a further announcement will be made
regarding the JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives project for this

The Jewish vital records of the town of Przemysl:

The Przemysl branch of the Archives holds the registers for the years
1790 to 1893. These have NOT been microfilmed by the Mormons.
(The later years are in the Przemysl Urzad Stanu Cywilnego (Civil
Records Office)

Please hold ALL questions about this project until the more detailed
announcement has been made. Your cooperation will be appreciated.
