Announcing the Sulejow, Poland PSA Indexing Project #poland

Gloria Berkenstat Freund

I am happy to announce that the indexing of the birth, marriage and death
records for Sulejow for the years 1873 to 1903 has been completed at the
Piotrkow-Trybunalski branch of the Polish State Archives. The period of
these records covers the years when many of our grandparents and

index (which includes surname spelling variations) and their frequency in
the index which I will be happy to send to anyone who wishes to look at it.

transliterate the names into their Polish counterparts. Professionals were
hired in Poland to do this work.

The total cost of the creation of the database is $600. $150 has already
been donated. If you make a contribution of $100 or more, you will be
eligible to receive an Excel file with the complete index for the town of
