searching 1923 Poland and Danzig commercial directory #galicia


Logan J. Kleinwaks
 

I have used OCR software to create a searchable version of the Library of
Congress' online copy of the 1923 Poland and Danzig commercial directory.
This has been added to the search engine at www.kalter.org/search.php. The
accuracy is less than that for the 1912 Galician telephone directory and the
1901 Galician industrial directory, but still good enough to be useful, I
believe (at least, I was able to find my family names of interest). I may
try to improve the accuracy by various methods, in which case I will post a
message indicating that the search engine has been updated.

Please remember that the search engine is case sensitive and sensitive to
accented characters.

I would appreciate hearing about any successes in using these tools.
