Lodz PSA Project Status #poland
Update on the Lodz JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives (PSA) Project
Dear Fellow Researchers,
Thanks to many generous contributors, 14 of the 34 towns in the Lodz PSA
project are now funded. I would like to especially thank Morris Wirth, Lodz
PSA Inventory Coordinator, and Joe Ross, Lodz PSA Assistant Coordinator, for
their invaluable assistance.
The town of Zloczew is the only town still in need of a town leader. If you
or anyone you know has an interest in the late 19th-century, non-microfilmed
records of Zloczew, please contact me at <Seflaum@...>.
Here is a summary of town fund raising currently in progress and indices that
will become available once fund raising is completed:
Town / Fund Raising Budget / Amt. Contributed / Amt. Still Needed / Town
Bolimow / $193.76 / $180.00 / $13.76 / Shirley Flaum <Seflaum@...>
Glowno / $510.72 / $154.00 / $346.72 / Shirley Flaum <Seflaum@...>
