The surviving Jewish vital records of Sosnicowice (formerly=20
Kieferst=E4dtel, Preu=DFen, Schlesien, Germany) only start in 1901
and because they are less than 100 years old and are not in
the Polish State Archives (they are in the Sosnicowice civil
records office) they are not available to JRI-Poland for indexing.

However, there is a Mormon microfilm with records for this town
(Film #1,184,428) which are alternatives to births and deaths.=20
The records are:

Circumcision: 1806-1865 =20
Cemetery: 1831-1893 =20

town so the indices do not appear in the JRI-Poland website. To=20
