Belarus SIG #Belarus 1926/27 Poland and Danzig Business Directory #belarus
Logan J. Kleinwaks
The 1926/27 Poland and Danzig Business Directory, "Ksiega Adresowa Polski
( wraz z w. m. Gdanskiem ) dla handlu, rzemiosl i rolnictwa," is now freely
available online at the Digital Library of Wielkopolska's site
http://www.wbc.poznan.pl/dlibra/docmetadata?id=11407. This 2626-page
directory is primarily organized by place, then by business type, then by
surname or business name. To facilitate searching, I have applied optical
character recognition (OCR) software to the Digital Library images and
incorporated the result into my Search Engine for Online Historical
Directories at http://www.kalter.org/search.php. When searching, please
keep in mind that OCR is not 100% accurate, so you still might want to
manually search the directory, especially if you are only interested a few
known small towns. To improve your chances of success, I encourage you to
make use of all three available methods of searching. An explanation of how
to access the scanned directory images at the Digital Library site can be
found in the FAQ on the Search Engine site.
If you find this tool to be helpful, please let me know.
Please realize that an initially high response may slow the Search Engine.
