Attention Tykocin Researchers #poland


The Jewish Records Indexing - Poland (JRI-PL) database has recently been
updated to incorporate Birth, Marriage, and Death indices for Tykocin.

Births 1880,1881,1883,1884,1885,1890
Marriages 1880,1881,1883,1884,1885
Deaths 1880,1881,1882,1883,1884,1885,1890

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 < >. Then click on "Project
Details" for more information.

The database can be searched by surname at < >. 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 < >.

We hope that you have been successful in adding to you family trees as a
result of the Bialystok Archives project. In addition to these records, there
are ten (10) microfilms available >from the LDS Family History Library that
contain vital records for Tykocin. The indices and records contained in these
ten microfilms are not included in the JRI-PL database. To get these records
into the database, the Tykocin Shtetl CO-OP needs your help in either of two

1. If you can read and translate/transliterate old style Cyrillic script,
you can help develop record indices for the records contained in these 10
microfilms. Please contact Richard Hoffman, Tykocin Shtetl CO-OP Coordinator
at <rhhoffman@...> to volunteer.

2. The Tykocin Shtetl CO-OP needs funds to process the records on these
ten microfilms into the JRI-PL database. If you can help, please send your
check in US$ to: Jewish Records Indexing, Inc., c/o Sheila Salo, Treasurer,
5607 Greenleaf Road, Cheverly, MD 20785, USA. Please identify your
contribution for TYKOCIN SHTETL CO-OP. >from outside the US, you can
