Re: Vital records from Chrzanow? #galicia

Stanley Diamond

Unfortunately, only some years of Jewish vital records of
Chzranow have survived. They are as follows:

Records in the Katowice branch of the Polish State Archives
Births 1902
Marriages 1883, 1887-88, 1890-93, 1901-02, 1904-05
Deaths 1882-83, 1887, 1897-98, 1900, 1902-03

These records have recently been indexed but funding is
not complete so the data is not yet online. For details on
how you can obtain access to information >from these
records, write to

Records in the Civil Records Office in the Chrzanow Town Hall
Births 1907, 1919-1920, 1925
Marriages 1907-10, 1912-16, 1918-21, 1928-30, 1939
Deaths 1907, 1909-11, 1913-14, 1918, 1920-21, 1929, 1939-41

in the Chrzanow Civil Records Office, also write to:

I am working on researching my family >from Chrzanow,
Galicia. Not the Chrzanow near Lublin.

My ancestor Schaul Schneider came >from Chrzanow in
1885 with his wife Scheinel and daughter Elke. They
were born in the 1850's.

Would anyone know if vital records exist and where are
they kept? May be an index?
