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


Willie46@...
 

Nearly 50,000 more AGAD vital record indices have now been
added to the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland database.
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jriplweb.htm>. Another
big THANK YOU to Michael Tobias for creating and updating
the JRI-Poland database, which now has nearly 1.6 million
index entries including nearly 200,000 AGAD index entries.

These indices were created directly >from the records housed
at the AGAD Archives in Warsaw. Indices for the Galician
Administrative District towns of Buczacz, Gliniany, Gwozdziec,
Jaryczow Nowy, Komarno, Mielnica, Okopy, Sambor, Sasow,
Stanislawow, Stratyn, Swirz, Tarnopol, Wielkie Oczy, Winniki,
and Zawalow have now been added to the database. All these
towns are currently in Ukraine except Wielkie Oczy, which is
in Poland. 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.

Although most 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>.
