JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Rzeszow Births Database now available on JRI-Poland #general
I am pleased to announce that the Rzeszow Birth Records
Database is now online in the searchable database of Jewish
Records Indexing-Poland <http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl>
The database contains information >from the city of Rzeszow on 1500
births >from the period 1842-1866. These records are held in the Lviv,
Ukraine Archives, and have not been filmed by the LDS (Mormons).
Rzeszow, (pronounced zhe-shuf) is in southern Poland and was in
the Austro-Hungarian province of Galicia.
If a search of the database turns up records for the surnames
you entered, you will see all the information that appears in the
original record, not just the index entry. This was made possible
because of the tabular format of the original records.
The records for this project were acquired and contributed by
Eleanor Bien, Louis Fine, Judie Ostroff-Goldstein, Michael Marks,
Marian Rubin and Carol Skydell. The indexing was done by
12 volunteers whose names are acknowledged on the page
linked to a successful search.
I want to thank all of the Jewish Records Indexing-Poland team--
Stanley Diamond, Hadassah Lipsius, Michael Tobias and Steve
Zedek--for their valued asssistance in guiding this project through all
its phases. Thanks also to Judy Baston, a member of
the JRI-Poland board, for her always appropriate suggestions.
My thanks and appreciation also go to JewishGen for the service they
provide to all of us by hosting JRI-Poland.
To those who benefit >from this database, please consider donations to
both JewishGen and to JRI-Poland. These are separate organizations,
and contributions enable each to provide invaluable services to researchers.
For those whose families lived in the city of Rzeszow, please contact
me privately about joining our Rzeszow Research Group E-mail list.
I look forward to hearing about your success in searching the database.
