Re: Conference Handout for Bialystok Area Jewish Genealogy Group Session #JewishGenUpdates

Hi Mark,
I enjoyed your talk on the state of Bialy-Gen. I had a few questions (I missed the first 10 minutes of your presentation, so you may have answered this then in your remarks- my apologies):
-What un-indexed records are available for Bialystok proper? I saw the slide where it mentioned 9100 revision list records, and 1400 additional vital records - but I wasn't clear if that was New Additions or what was waiting to be Indexed.
-What is the suggested donation on JRI-Poland to receive access? 
-(unrelated to above) I saw Sokolka on the list of towns for the 1891 revision lists, and earlier vital records. Do you know if any of these records includes the nearby Koloneja Izaaka / Isaakovskaya Koloniya / Izaak Colony? I know there are (at least) revision lists extant that Irwin Keller was kind enough to share, and it seemed it was sometimes folded into the larger Sokolka's files.
 
thanks!

PS - thanks to the tip by a participant in the chat on the Bialystoker Album/Yizkor book, I was able to track down a digitized copy posted on the NYPLs site - it had photos I've never seen before of my great-grandmother (and founding member of the Bialystoker Home) Freida (Rogal) Epstein, and one photo that I'm pretty sure is of my grandfather :)
