David and Nat Klein <d_k@...>
I am pleased to announce the formation of the WARKA CO-OP for which I
will be the coordinator. Warka is a town located 56 kms SSE of Warsaw,
in the district of Grojec, Warsaw Gubernia.
All researchers of this town and its surrounding area will be glad to
know that we are looking for volunteers to help key the Warka vital
records into the Jewish Records Index - Poland project.
The following Warka vital records are available:
723,679 for 1855-59 in Polish
723,678 for 1842-54 " "
723,677 for 1826-41 " "
1,201,357 BMD for years 1874-77 in Russian
1,201,356 BMD for 1873 " "
I have consulted the films 723,677-8-9 available at Dorot and have found
the indexes easily readable. In order to key the material, which you
will receive on paper copies, there is no need for previous knowledge in
Polish, only a keen eye, common sense and enthusiasm. Concerning the
later years, people with Cyrillic knowledge would be most welcome.
Join us now and make a significant contribution to this exciting
