Announcing the Biskupice (Lublin) PSA Project #poland
Dear JRI-Poland Readers:
Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is pleased to announce that we've
recently created an index of the Jewish vital records issued in Biskupice,
Lublin District >from the last half of the 19th century through 1904!
Biskupice is about 10 miles >from Lublin and Piaski. These records are
kept in the Lublin branch of the Polish State Archives and are not
available through the Mormons. The records indexed include: 1862-1904
births, 1859-1904 marriages, and 1863-1904 deaths.
The Biskupice PSA project must raise $550 US to pay for this already
complete work. The data can only be added to the JRI-Poland database
after the project has been completely funded. Donations of any size are
greatly appreciated. Donors of $100 or more will be eligible to obtain
their own copy of the EXCEL spreadsheet via email following the signing
of the Biskupice database sharing agreement. Donations are tax-deductible
for US and Canadian taxpayers.
Please visit http://www.jri-poland.org/visa.htm for more information on
how to make tax-deductible donations, or send your check, money order or
credit card information to:
