JRI-Poland adds more Galicia Data to the Database #galicia

Mark Halpern

Dear Galitzianer Researchers:

Most of you know that in 2015 the Polish legislature passed a law that
reduced the privacy period for marriages and deaths (not births) >from
100 years to 80 years. Within the last 18 months, the AGAD Archive has
received marriage and death registers covering some years >from 1918
through 1937 for 77 towns. Data covering these years is already online
for about 20 of these towns.

Earlier this week, JRI-Poland processed and added a significant volume
of new and/or extended data. This includes about 8,000 new record
indices for eastern Galicia towns as follows:

-- Borszczow 1914, 1916-1929 M
-- Chodorow 1914-1929 M
-- Dunajow 1925-1934 D
-- Kopyczynce 1877, 1879, 1880, 1883, 1885-1914, 1916-1919 M
-- Lysiec 1919-1931 D
-- Mielnica 1898-1914, 1917-1929 M; 1910-1920 D
-- Podwoloczyska 1921-1934 M; 1920-1922 D
-- Sokal 1916-1935 D
-- Szczerzec 1917 B; 1916-1926, 1938, 1930-1932, 1934-1935 D
-- Zalozce 1914, 1916, 1920-1924 M; 1916, 1918-1921 D
-- Zbaraz 1914-1917 B; 1930-1937 M

I want to thank all of our volunteer Town Leaders and all of the
supporters of our AGAD town projects for their backing. Special thank
you to Hadassah Lipsius who coordinates all these uploads and Michael
Tobias, one of the founders of JRI-Poland, who manages our database
and processes and uploads the new data.

There are still over 50 towns with varying amounts of marriage and
death records that need your support to be added to the JRI-Poland
database. This includes the larger towns of Drohobycz, Horodenka,
Kolomyja, Lwow, Sambor, Stanislawow, Stryj, Tarnopol, and Zolkiew
plus many other shtetlach.

Please direct any questions you may have to the Town Leader or to me
at mark@....

Wishing you all a very happy holiday and a healthy, happy, and
rewarding (genealogically speaking) 2019.
