New Eastern Galician Records Added to JRI-Poland Database #galicia


Mark Halpern
 

Happy New Year to everyone.

Just before the New Year, Stanley Diamond announced that Approximately 125,000 new
entries for 60 towns were added to the JRI-Poland database, which now has more than
2.5 million Polish Jewish records.

I am proud to announce that the AGAD Indexing project of vital records for eastern
Galicia - towns now in Ukraine - contributed over 50,000 new entries >from 22 towns.

Thanks to the efforts of the AGAD indexing team in Warsaw and Michael Tobias, there
are now more than 550,000 vital record indices for 78 eastern Galician towns in the
JRI-Poland database.

To find information about the status of indexing for the 87 Administrative towns that
are part of the AGAD project, please go to
http://www.jri-poland.org/agad/agadtowns.html.

If your ancestral town was near one of the towns noted below, your town's records
could have been registered in one of these Administrative towns. The Jewish
communities in these Administrative towns collected the vital records for all the
towns in its district. The indices in the database include reference to the town in
which the vital event occurred. Search the database for your surname and set
"Province" to "Ukraine." This will result in only AGAD record indices being displayed
in your search results.

The indices do not have all the genealogical relevant information. You can order the
actual record >from the AGAD Archives using the new Shopping Basket ordering system.

All these records, except the newly added Grodek Jagiellonski records can be ordered
from the AGAD Archives using the JRI-Poland Shopping Basket Order System
http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/neworder.htm.

You can help ensure the indexing of your Galician town's records. Please consider a
contribution to the AGAD project. Information on contributing is available at
http://www.jewishgen.org/jri-pl/agad/agadcontrib.htm.

The AGAD record indices contained in the JRI-Poland database would not be accessible
to researchers without our host, JewishGen. In addition to your contribution to the
JRI- Poland AGAD Project that supports indexing of the records, we hope you will also
give to JewishGen to help defray the cost of maintaining these records. An easily
accessible contribution form is available at
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/AGAD.html.
