Radom Books of Residents Project half completed - 17,000 entries #poland


Carol Isaak
 

I am pleased to announce that indexing of the Jewish entries in the
Books of Residents for the city of Radom is now halfway complete.

The indexing of these volumes is part of the Jewish Records Indexing -
Poland Archives project.

There are more than 17,000 entries to date. The final count should
be between 35,000 - 40,000. Each entry includes Name, Surname,
Father Name, Mother Name, Date and Place of Birth and Occupation.
In some cases, the Date of Death or other notes are included.

There are a total of 3656 distinct surnames or variations of surnames
in the database. A list of all surnames appearing 100 or more times
is included. A surname frequency list is available upon request.

There are 719 towns in addition to Radom that are listed as place of
birth. A list of all towns appearing 18 or more times is included below.
A town frequency list is available upon request.

The cost of indexing the Radom Books of Residents is expected to
be approximately $8000 to $9000. Researchers making a Qualifying
Contribution of no less than $150 will be eligible to obtain a copy of
the Excel file with all 35,000 - 40,000 entries.

A file with the currently available 17,000+ entries will be available
immediately to Qualifying Contributors.
