Kozova Birth Indices Now Online #poland


I am proud to announce the addition of over 1,500 Kozova birth indices for
1877-1893 to the database. These records represent the complete Kozova
holdings of the AGAD Archives.

If you have ancestors in the Tarnopol/Brzezany area, you may also want to
search the Kozova indices. I found an ancestor and his wife, who I knew had
five children in Tarnopol, had actually given birth to their first child in

With this addition, there are now over 14,000 AGAD Tarnopol Area Birth
indices on the JRI-Poland database. These indices are the result of
JRI-Poland's agreement with the Polish State Archives to index all the 19th
Century vital records for 82 towns in the former Eastern Galicia area
(currently located in Ukraine) that are held by the AGAD Archives in Warsaw.

When you search the database, you can narrow your search to the towns in East
Galicia (current Ukraine) by entering Province = "Ukraine." To narrow your
search to only Kozova, enter Town = "Kozova."

For those who have never ordered records >from the Polish State Archives
through a JRI-Poland database search, instructions are available in my
announcement of October 24. I provided detailed instructions to search the
database and order records of interest >from the AGAD Archives. You can find
these instructions by using the JewishGen SIG Lists Archives, which can be
accessed at <http://www.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.isa?jg~jgsys~sigspop>.
Search for "Tarnopol" and you will find my October 24 posting.

I wish all Kozova researchers great success in their search of the database.
If you do find success, I would appreciate if you would post your experiences
on this forum.

I would like to thank Jay Hackin (Kozova Town Leader), Stanley Diamond, Steve
Zedeck, Michael Tobias, and the AGAD Archive staff for the success in making
these Kozova indices available to all of us.
