Krakow Marriage and Banns Indices

The Krakow Marriage and Banns indexing project has turned out
to be an OVERWHELMING success.

Besides the sheer volume of the indices (23,000 entries), the records
themselves give researchers of Krakow and nearby towns far more
information than is usually available in a web search. Many
researchers have sent for copies of the register pages and their
generous donations have enabled the Jewish Historical Institute
to microfilm the registers and thus preserve the original volumes.

During the microfilming process, orders for copies of records
were put on hold and on behalf of the Ronald S. Lauder Foundation
Genealogy project at the Jewish Historical Institute (which handles
the servicing of orders), I would like to thank researchers for their
patience. I am informed that they are now catching up with the
backlog.

The Krakow Marriage and Banns initative is just one of the
collections of genealogical interest being indexed under the
auspices of the Jewish Records Indexing - Poland / Jewish
Genealogical Society, Inc. (New York) joint project at the
Jewish Historical Institute, Warsaw. For more information
