JRI-Poland Agreement with Miriam Weiner and The Routes to Roots Foundation #poland
Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is extremely honored to
announce a historic agreement with Miriam Weiner and her
Routes to Roots Foundation (http://www.rtrfoundation.org/)
that will provide researchers of Polish Jewish family histories
with a wealth of new materials freely offered online through
the JRI-Poland website.
Miriam is an internationally acclaimed genealogist who was
instrumental in opening up archives in Eastern Europe and has
collected many interesting and important documents in over
30 years of research. Miriam has decided to make these
materials available to the public and chose JRI-Poland to be
the conduit for her Polish materials. In 2016, Board member
Mark Halpern visited Miriam's archive (her home and storage
unit) to view her vast collection. His comment was "Amazing!"
Miriam is sharing her collection of Archival inventories, the
information that populates her award winning book, "Jewish
Roots in Poland" and her online Routes to Roots Foundation
archival inventory, but with more detail of value to researchers.
Miriam is sharing archival lists (tax, census, birth, burials,
memberships, etc.) that she copied over the years. These will
be processed and added to the online JRI-Poland database
in the next months and years.
A partial list of the contents of Miriam's Polish materials can
be found at
Included are many articles of interest >from Miriam's book and
her website including chapters on 28 of the largest Jewish
towns in Poland providing an overall picture of those towns.

banner of our homepage http://www.jri-poland.org/.
With great pleasure and on behalf of the Board of Directors.
