JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen The value of JRI - an anecdote #general

IsraelP <zach4v6@...>

Those who wonder about the value of the JRI project as compared to
a private search, might consider the following anecdote.

The Pikholz Project paid AGAD for a search of Pikholz birth and death
records a couple of years ago. For the relevant periods, they told us
they found sixty-five births and ten deaths. This week, we (JRI
contributors and town leaders) received the Excel file for Rozdol
indexing and there were 110 births and eighteen deaths of Pikholz
descendants for the same periods. That's after a brief examination.
There may be a few more that I missed.
