Przemysl secondary school records 1851-1939 #poland

Przemysl secondary school records for 1851-1939, for the gymnasium
named after Juliusz Slowacki, are now viewable online and include
genealogically useful information about students: birth date and
place, father's name and address. Many Jewish students are included
(religion is often stated). These handwritten records are not
indexed, but are very legible and are typically alphabetized per
school year or per class per year. They were digitized by the
Przemysl Branch of the Polish State Archives with support >from the
Ministry of Culture and National Heritage. Note that these school
records are different than the typewritten school reports that list
students but rarely include such details (some of those reports are
searchable at genealogyindexer.org).

To view the records, go to http://www.przemysl.ap.gov.pl/skany/, then
change the top drop-down option, "Nr zespolu," to "387" and press the
"Szukaj" button at the bottom. You will see a table where each row
refers to a group of scans, usually covering a single school year. In
the first column on the left, "Sygnatura," is a link to the scans.
Clicking that link brings up a small image of the first scan with
links below it to jump to other scans. Clicking that small image will
enlarge it. When viewing an enlarged scan, you can press the right or
left arrow to move forward or backward one scan, and there is an icon
on the left of a downward arrow in a circle, which you can click to
download the scan to your computer.

I have no other information about this material and regret that I am
not able to provide individual assistance.
