The Jewish Records Indexing - Poland Project is proud to announce
the Kurow PSA Project! Our goal is to index all Jewish records >from
the town of Kurow and add it to the JRI-Poland database. We have
succeeded in indexing most of the Kurow Jewish records and a description
of what we've found and what we've done appears in detail in this note...
The Kurow Jewish births, marriages and deaths between 1810-1847 were filmed
by the Mormons, typed by volunteers, and now appear in the JRI-Poland
database... And the subsequent years, 1862-1902 (some registers apparently
didn't survive, and 1855-1857 are being repaired by the Archives) were
recently indexed by the JRI-Poland team! The PSA records include Births
between 1862-1902 and Deaths between 1871-1902.
The most commonly found surnames in those more recent records include the
BRENER, BRUTMAN, CHANDELSMAN, CHANESMAN, CUKERMAN, CYMERMAN, ELENBOGEN,
ETYNGER, FLAKSER, FLISFEDER, FROST, GOLDGRAN, GOLDSZLAGER, GONIKSMAN,
GOPENCHAIM, GOPENGAJM, GROSMAN, GUBERMAN, KINIG, KLAPERMAN, KLEMENSBERG,
LERMAN, LEWIN, LEWINSON, LIBCHABER, LIBERMAN. LOMBERG, LORBERBAUM,
MUGERMAN, NAJMARK, NIRENBERG, ISENBAUM,RAPOPORT, ROTFARB, ROZEN,
ROZENBLAT, RUCHELSMAN, RYCER, SZABMACHER, SZNAJDLEDER, SZOR, SZTERN,
SZYFMAN, SZYLKROT, TENENBAUM, WACHENCHAUZER, WAJCMAN, WAJDE, WAJNBERG,
If you would like more information about this project or would like to know
how many times your own surname appears in the Kurow records, please
contact me privately.
These records will go live on the database as soon as we can raise the
funds to pay for them. The fundraising target for the Kurow PSA project
is $1050, and donations of all sizes are greatly appreciated. Donors
who make a minimum contribution of $100 and sign a Kurow database sharing
agreement will be entitled to an advance copy of the Kurow PSA file for
their own personal use
To make a donation to the Kurow PSA project, please earmark your donation
with the words "Kurow PSA Project" and send your cash, check or money order
