Gesher Galicia is very excited about Mark Halpern's announcement of
the new JRI-Poland Area Shtetl CO-OP project to index the valuable
collection of LDS microfilms of Jewish records >from the L'viv archive.
For those of you who have viewed the entire list of these microfilms
on the FHL website and compared it to the inventory as detailed on
Miriam Weiner's website and on the Gesher Galicia website (composed
by Alex Dunai, entitled: Jewish Records in the Lviv Archive) you
should know that three record books, which should have been at these
archives, are currently missing or unavailable, and, therefore,
unfilmed. These are:
Kaminka Strumilova - Marriages - 1789-1861
L’viv - Marriages - 1835-1842
Khystynopol - Marraiges - 1933
"Missing" means that they could not be found during the LDS
microfilming process. It is possible that these are gone forever
(possibly stolen in light of the discovery of thefts at the archive
last year) or simply mis-filed or misplaced, and may eventually yet
be located. If anything more is learned about these particular books,
information will be posted on the list.
In the meantime, please consider volunteering for this important
indexing project by contacting Mark Halpern at firstname.lastname@example.org
or Hadassah Lipsius at email@example.com.
