Congratulations to Hadassah Lipsius for a great achievment for all TM
roots seekers now and in the future...

In addition I remind you all that I have posted in the name of Benjmain
Yaari (Wald),
chairman of the Tomaszow Mazowiecki Landsmanschaften in Israel, their book:
"Tomaszow Mazowiecki Jewish Cemetery". See:
http://www.geocities.com/Paris/Rue/4017/tomaszow/tomaszow.htm

The database will be added soon to the new growing JewishGen
Online Worldwide Burial Registry- OWBR at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/

Shalom,

Ada Holtzman

I am happy to say that last week, Jewish Records Indexing-Poland added to
their database the Tomaszow Mazowiecki indices data >from the Polish State
Archives. This data comes >from the years that were not microfilmed by the
LDS. The JRI-Poland database now contains indices information >from 15,840
records.

I have already heard >from people who have yielded new clues in their
research >from this information.

Tomaszow Mazowiecki was in Lodz Province and Piotrkow Gubernia. It is one
of those newer Polish towns in that, the town was started in the 1820's
and
the Jewish community was officially recognized in the early 1830's. Some
of us can connect our families to the original Jewish community
organizers.

Many thanks to my fellow Tomaszowers and the JRI-Poland gang who made this
effort possible.
