BialyGen: Bialystok Region #Bialystok #Poland BIALYGen Town Kruszyniany #poland


Does anyone have any knowledge of the town of Kruszyniany? This town is
in the BIALYGen area at coordinates 5311, 2349, 28 miles east of
Bialystok and 6 miles SSE of Krynki, near the border with Belarus.

As many of you know, there are very few Jewish vital records for any
Polish town east of Bialystok. However, Miriam Weiner's Routes to Roots
Foundation Archive Database at reports
that the local Urzad Stanu Cywilnego -- USC (civil records office) holds
Jewish births 1882-1939, deaths 1882-1914, 1922-39, and marriages
1882-1915, 1922-39.

If there is enough interest in this town, maybe something can be done.
It could be difficult. As many of you know, Polish privacy laws and laws
regulation USC offices protect these records >from public availability.
