The following announcement was sent to to me by Mark Halpern, JRI-Poland
Order Processing Coordinator:
Subject: Ordering Records >from Lodz Archive through JRI-Poland
If you have recently or soon plan to order records >from the Lodz Archive
using the JRI-Poland Order Processing System, please note the following.
The Lodz State Archives branch has advised JRI-Poland that they will be
fumigating their entire collection of records over the next year. The
Archive started the fumigation/preservation processing with vital records
including Jewish records. Although JRI-Poland does not know when processing
will resume, we advise all Lodz area researchers that it could take two to
four months for Lodz orders to be processed.
Orders for records >from the Lodz Archive will continue to be accepted by
JRI-Poland Order Center, but researchers ordering these records should be
prepared to wait an extra 2-3 months for their copies.
