Jewish Records Indexing-Poland is pleased to announce the 2004 edition
of the JRI-Poland Research Guide is now available online -- in four languages.
The guides are in PDF format and may be downloaded >from the home page at
The English version of the Research Guide has been updated and distributed
each year to attendees at the International Jewish Genealogical Conferences,
as well as made available on our website. We hope the French, Hebrew and
Spanish editions will make it possible for many more family historians with
an interest in Polish Jewish research to become familiar with the activities
of JRI-Poland as well as to learn some of the basic research techniques
outlined in the guide.
On behalf of JRI-Poland I would like to express our sincerest appreciation
to the world-wide group of contributors to the four versions of the
Research Guide. They are:
* Morris Spector, Connecticut, the graphic designer for the Research Guide
since the first of the annual editions was published in 1998.
* Serge Reich and Nicole Berline of France for the French translation.
* Yocheved Klausner of Israel for the Hebrew translation.
* Carlos Glikson of Argentina for the Spanish translation.
* Susan Garfield Shulman of D-Zign, Montreal, for her valued assistance
in the layout of the French and Spanish editions.
And, of course, thanks to our webmaster, Earl Wertheimer for bringing
the guides to life on our website in such a colorful fashion.
We urge all friends of JRI-Poland to bring the Research Guide to the
attention of fellow researchers, family members and friends -- those
active in genealogy as well as others who may not be aware of the
treasures that are available in the Jewish records of Poland.
Executive Director, Jewish Records Indexing - Poland
