JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Shtetl CO-OP Warszawa Updates #general


The Jewish Records Indexing-Poland database has been updated to include
an additional 9952 indices >from the city of Warszawa. The Warszawa Shtetl
CO-OP project creates extended indices, which also include when noted in
the record: date of the event, age, gender, father's name and age, mother's
name and age, mother's maiden name.

Warszawa was separated into various districts or Cyrkuli. The dividing
lines of these districts varied over time. Each inner city district maintained
their own vital record registration; however there were periods of time
in which several districts combined their vital registration together.
The new data includes registers for the years 1832, 1846-48, 1864-1866 >from
multiple districts. Maps of the district borders can be found at

If you know the address where your family lived but not the district,
then it is recommended to use as a reference the Warszawa Homeowner's list
which was compiled by the Warszawa Research Group.

Many thanks to those who helped with the indexing and data entry,
Michael Chen, Rose Feldman, Miriam Segali (z"l) and the Douglas E. Goldman
Jewish Genealogy Center.
