Hello Everyone

Maybe indexing all the Lodz Books of Residents with its 180 volumes, 1440
households and perhaps 200,000 entries is too daunting a task.

However, maybe LARG can set aside an online area for a database. There,
people who already researched the Lodz Book of Residents could donate their
information, and as other people obtain information in the future, they too
can post their information so it can be shared with all Lodz researchers.

A standardized form should be developed for the compiled information so it
is easily searched and presented online. As a first thought, there can be an
area where a copy of the original page >from the Book of Residents can be
seen along and a part 2 with a place for the translation if available.

Indexing all the Lodz Books of Residents in Lodz would be a fantastic
project, but it is an enormous enormous task.

I have just talked to Stanley Diamond about it. He estimates that there
180 volumes, 1440 households, and perhaps 200,000 entries. It could only
done by professional archivists in Poland and would cost between $30,000
