Dear Piotrkow Trybunalski Researchers,
Jewish Records Indexing-Poland (JRI-Poland) is happy to announce
that the indexing of the birth, marriage and death records for Piotrkow
Trybunalski for the years 1889 to 1904 has been completed and these
indices are now available to Qualified Contributors.
As a Qualified Contributor to the Piotrkow Trybunalski PSA project, you
will automatically receive the Excel file with indices to all vital records
from 1889 to 1904. Piotrkow Trybunalski is one of the larger towns in Polandand, therefore, the total cost of the creation of the database is $2,200.
Only $540 has been raised so far, meaning an additional $1,660 has to be
raised. The qualifying contribution is $100 (US dollars) or more. There are
almost 500 of us researching Piotrkow Trybunalski and if each of us sent a
contribution, it would bring us over the top in our fundraising very
The earlier Piotrkow Trybunalski records >from 1808 to 1888 were
microfilmed by the LDS; the JRI-Poland Piotrkow Trybunalski Shtetl CO-OP
project is in the process of indexing those microfilms. For an up-to-date
