Dear friends of Jewish Records Indexing - Poland:
We are pleased to announce that work is well under way in the
indexing of the Jewish vital records for the ten towns in the Mlawa
branch of the Polish State Archvives which have _not_ been
microfilmed by the LDS (Mormons).
This indexing is part of the project announced at the Summer Seminar
in Los Angeles. For more details of the JRI-Poland / Polish State
Archives project, please read the announcement on the JRI-Poland
website: www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl and click on "press releases." For
a more detailed description of the project, click on "Presentation at

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is asking for a volunteer or

Archives indexing project. (Nowy Dwor is 25 km NW of Warsaw.)

The "Archive Coordinator" is responsible for finding, appointing and
working with "Town Leaders." Anyone interested in assuming the
responsibility of Nowy Dwor Archive Coordinator should respond to
Town Leaders organize the project to index their town's records.
That means reaching out to all researchers with an interest in the
specific town. There is no data entry work by volunteers for this
project; all data entry is done by professionals in Poland. Town
leaders and their supporters will be eligible to receive the full
database of indices for their town!
