Dear Fellow Researchers,
I am happy to announce that 1,639 new indices to non-microfilmed Jewish
vital records of Ozorkow are pending addition to the JRI-Poland
database. Some 19th century and first two years of the 20th century Jewish
vital records of this town have been indexed by the JRI-Poland team in
Warsaw as part of the JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives (PSA) Project.
Ozorkow is located only 20 miles / 32 kilometers NW of Lodz and had a
large Jewish population before the Shoah.
Some of the towns located close to Ozorkow are:
Lodz, Aleksandrow Lodzki, Piatek, Zgierz, Leczyca, Kutno, Strykow.
o Summary of New Indices to Ozorkow Records
The types and years of records are as follows:
Marriages: 1844-55, 1888-1889

o The Lodz JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives Project
Indexes to non-microfilmed 19th century Ozorkow Jewish records housed in
the Lodz Archives were indexed for addition to the JRI-Poland database
under an agreement between JRI-Poland and the Polish State Archives
(PSA). For information about the PSA project see:
This new material will finally allow you to expand your research into a
time period or geographical area that has been elusive and beyond your
reach. Once these indexes are available, you may simply print out an
order form >from the Jewish Records Indexing-Poland web site and order the
records >from the Polish State Archives.
