Logan J. Kleinwaks
Przemysl secondary school records for 1851-1939, for the gymnasium
named after Juliusz Slowacki, are now viewable online and include
genealogically useful information about students: birth date and place,
father's name and address. Many Jewish students are included (religion is
often stated). These handwritten records are not indexed, but are very
legible and are typically alphabetized per school year or per class per year.
They were digitized by the Przemysl Branch of the Polish State Archives
with support >from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage. Note that
these school records are different than the typewritten school reports that
list students but rarely include such details (some of those reports are
searchable at genealogyindexer.org).
To view the records, go to http://www.przemysl.ap.gov.pl/skany/, then
change the top drop-down option, "Nr zespolu," to "387" and press the
"Szukaj" button at the bottom. You will see a table where each row refers
to a group of scans, usually covering a single school year. In the first column
on the left, "Sygnatura," is a link to the scans. Clicking that link brings up a
small image of the first scan with links below it to jump to other scans.
Clicking that small image will enlarge it. When viewing an enlarged scan,
you can press the right or left arrow to move forward or backward one scan,
and there is an icon on the left of a downward arrow in a circle, which you
can click to download the scan to your computer.
I have no other information about this material and regret that I am not
able to provide individual assistance.
