"Belchatow Bonanza" COMPLETED #poland


Roni S. Liebowitz
 

Dear Belchatow Researchers,

Back in 2002, we announced the "Belchatow
Bonanza." This was an innovative initiative to
raise funds for 5-years of Belchatow vital record
indices (1901-1905) all at once. The advantage of
this approach to you, the researcher, was that it
asked you to support a single project covering
those five years, rather than a new one each year
as additional records become available for
indexing.

We just received the final 2 years of indices for
this project: 1904 and 1905. This is the time
period when not only our grandparents and their
siblings were born and married, but also when many
of our parents, aunts and uncles were born in
Belchatow. Having the indices in one database
enables you to search for given names, further
research those who married into the family, and
manipulate the data in various other ways to glean
the most information.

Surnames listed 20 or more times in all the PSA
years >from 1889 to 1905 are: JAKUBOWICZ,
SZMULEWICZ, GOLDBERG, FRAJMAN, LIBERMAN,
MARKOWICZ, LAJB, ROZENCWAJG, BENCZKOWSKA, FELD,
STATLENDER, WARSZAWSKA, BENCZKOWSKI, NOWAK,
SZMKOWICZ, LEWKOWICZ, PRZYBYLSKA, KLUCZ, GELBART,
PILA, GRUSZKA, GRYNBERG, JOSKOWICZ, KONSENS,

PRZYBYLSKI, MACHABONSKI, PRZEDBORSKA, WARSZAWSKI,
GLIKSMAN, ROZENBLAT, BORNSZTAJN, FAJWISZ.

For a complete list of surnames for these years,
