Re: Bialystok Family tree #poland


The Moderator directed you to the JRI-Poland database. JRI-Poland has
indexed all the available records covering the years 1835 through 1903.
The 1904 records are currently being indexed. Records for 1905-1942 are
protected by Poland's strict privacy laws and are not available to the
public. For more information about vital records in Poland, please read
Warren Blatt's JewishGen Infofile at .

BIALYGen has developed a relationship with the Bialystoker Center in New
York. With the Bialystoker Center permission, BIALYGen and has
placed the English section of The Bialystoker Memorial Book online at We have also placed online a
Surname index to this Memorial Book. You can lookup your surname at
and then find the person's reference in the online Memorial Book.

BIALYGen is also in the process of indexing the Bialystoker Center
Yahrzeit cards. Read more about this project at .

BIALYGen also has a Surname index to the Bialystok Photo Album published
by the Bialystoker Center in 1951. This can be found at .

It is my understanding that the Bialystoker Center does not have any
more genealogically relevant materials.

Dear All,

My great-grandparents Sam Pollack and Mary Stoljar came >from Bialystok
his parents Abraham Piora and Rachel >from Ciechanowiec. Abraham had
brothers, Shlomo (family shot by Nazis) and Hershel (family deported
Treblinka). Their parents were Noach Piora(o) and Gole-Gisha my
great-great-great-grandparents. Sam and Mary went on to help found
Bialystoker Center as members of the bricklayers club--they both died
as well. My family's only survivors >from Bialystok who remained in
were Shlomo's sons Alter and Nathaniel who both settled in Israel
after the
war. They have pices written in the Ciechanowiec memorial book.

Does anyone know of these families >from their own research?

How do you obtain vital records >from Poland?

How would I obtain records >from the Bialystoker Center?

Thanks in advance,

Marya Pollack (but it should be Pioro)
