Gesher Galicia SIG #Galicia More New AGAD Galician Indices now Online #galicia


Willie46@...
 

When it rains, it pours. Over 37,000 more AGAD vital record
indices have been added to the Jewish Records Indexing -
Poland database this month
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jriplweb.htm>. A big THANK
YOU to Michael Tobias, Database Manager extraordinaire, for
creating and updating the JRI-Poland database, which now
has over 1.3 million index entries including over 130,000
AGAD index entries.

These indices were created directly >from the records housed
at the AGAD Archives in Warsaw. In addition to those additions
announced last week, indices for the Galician Administrative
District towns of Podhajce (Podgaytsy), Rohatyn (Rogatin),
Gologory, Grodek Jagellonski (Gorodek), Husiatyn (Gusyatin),
Zurawno (Zhuravno), Uscie Biscupie (Ust'ye), Sokolowka
(Sokolovka), Kudrynce (Kudrintsy), and Zablotow (Zabolotov)
have now been added to the database. More information on
each town is provided below.

If your ancestral town was near one of the above towns (see
coordinates below), your town's records could have been registered
in one of these towns. The towns included in this project are all
Administrative District and Subdistrict towns. The Jewish
Community in each of these towns was required by law to collect
the vital records for all the towns that were part of the Subdistrict.
The indices for the above Administrative towns include reference
to the town in which the vital event occurred. Search the database
for your surname and set "Province" to "Ukraine." This will result
in only AGAD record indices being displayed in your search results.

The indices do not have all the genealogical relevant data. You can
order the actual record >from the AGAD Archives using the Order
Form that is only a few clicks away >from your search results.

Please stay tuned to this forum for more announcements of
when more AGAD indices are added to the JRI-Poland database.
Waiting in the wings are more death indices for Gologory and
Zablotow as well as indices for Szczerzec, Kopyczynce,
Mosciska, Rozdol, and Strzeliska Nowe.

Although all of the above Administrative town indexing projects
have been funded and are now available to researchers, there
are many years of records that will become available in the
coming years as all the records in the register books become
over 100 years old (due to Poland's strict privacy laws, all
records 100 years old or less are not available to the public and,
therefore, are not available for indexing). In order to index these
newly available records, more contributions are needed.

You can help ensure the indexing of your Galician town's records
as they become available. Please consider a contribution to the
AGAD project. Information on contributing is available at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/agad/agadcontrib.htm>.

The AGAD record indices contained in the JRI-Poland database
would not be accessible to researchers without our host,
JewishGen. In addition to your contribution to the JRI-Poland
AGAD Project that supports indexing of the records, we hope
you will also give to JewishGen to help defray the cost of
maintaining these records. An easily accessible contribution
form is available at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/AGAD.html>.
