JRI Poland #Poland Announcing the Sulejow, Poland PSA Indexing Project #poland
Gloria Berkenstat Freund
I am happy to announce that the indexing of the birth, marriage and death
records for Sulejow for the years 1873 to 1903 has been completed at the
Piotrkow-Trybunalski branch of the Polish State Archives. The period of
these records covers the years when many of our grandparents and
great-grandparents lived in Sulejow. I have a list of the surnames in this
index (which includes surname spelling variations) and their frequency in
the index which I will be happy to send to anyone who wishes to look at it.
Some of the most frequently mentioned surnames are:
BIRENCWAJG, GOLD, GOLDBERG, GROSBERG, JURKEWICZ, LAJZEROWICZ,
LIBERMAN, NEJMAN, ROZENBLUM and ROZENCWAJG.
In order for us to have access to this database, it must be uploaded to the
JRI-Poland website. However, before this can be done, we must pay for the
expenses incurred in the creation of the database. The 1873-1903 documents
are written in the Cyrillic alphabet and the process of creating the
database involved data entry in Russian and then using a JRI-Poland macro to
transliterate the names into their Polish counterparts. Professionals were
hired in Poland to do this work.
The total cost of the creation of the database is $600. $150 has already
been donated. If you make a contribution of $100 or more, you will be
eligible to receive an Excel file with the complete index for the town of
