Dear Fellow Researchers,

I am happy to announce that 1,639 new indices to non-microfilmed Jewish
vital records of Ozorkow are pending addition to the JRI-Poland
database. Some 19th century and first two years of the 20th century
Jewish vital records of this town have been indexed by the JRI-Poland
team in Warsaw as part of the JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives (PSA)

Ozorkow is located only 20 miles / 32 kilometers NW of Lodz and had a
large Jewish population before the Shoah.

Some of the towns located close to Ozorkow are:
Lodz, Aleksandrow Lodzki, Piatek, Zgierz, Leczyca, Kutno, Strykow.

o Summary of New Indices to Ozorkow Records

The types and years of records are as follows:

Marriages: 1844-55, 1888-1889

o The Lodz JRI-Poland / Polish State Archives Project

the Lodz Archives were indexed for addition to the JRI-Poland database
under an agreement between JRI-Poland and the Polish State Archives

This new material will finally allow you to expand your research into a
time period or geographical area that has been elusive and beyond your
reach. Once these indexes are available, you may simply print out an
order form >from the Jewish Records Indexing-Poland web site and order
the records >from the Polish State Archives.
