Update and more data added to JRI-Poland database. #poland

Stanley Diamond
 

Thanks to our many volunteers and supporters, 2016 is turning out to be
another extremely significant year in the growth of Jewish Records
Indexing - Poland.

My colleagues Hadassah Lipsius and Mark Halpern have made
announcements about newly indexed and extracted records, updated and
expanded index files for many towns, and the linking of JRI-Poland
search results to digital images on the Polish State Archives "National
Digital Archive" website. These include records >from the LDS
microfilms, records that fall under the AGAD Archives project as well
as the major addition of records >from the city of Warszawa.

And just a few days ago, The Foundation for Documentation of Jewish
Cemeteries in Poland announced the addition of 10,000 Polish Jewish
gravestone inscriptions to their magnificent database. These too are
incorporated into the JRI-Poland database and thus appear in the search
results.

However, there are even more new additions to the JRI-Poland database
including records >from the following towns, indexed under what is known
as the PSA project:

Biecz, Bobowa, Brzozow, Glogow Malopolski, Inowlodz, Jaroslaw,
Kanczuga, Karczew, Klobuck, Koniecpol, Krzepice, Lelow, Lezajsk, Makow
Mazowieki, Mielec, Niebylec, Pajeczno, Plawno, Praszka, Rozwadow,
Rzeszow, Szczekociny and Wyszogrod.

In total, almost 50,000 new, updated or linked entries have been added
to the database before we reached our pre-Pesach launch date. Another
large batch will be uploaded prior to the Seattle conference in August.

In addition to these new records now searchable in the JRI-Poland
database, professionals have data entered tens of thousands of records
that are not yet searchable online. These include entries for which
there were previously only basic indices but now are fully extracted.
The individual data sets will be searchable online as the cost for each
town is fully covered.

As the JRI-Poland database includes entries for more than 600 towns, it
is impossible to provide details of the updated records for each town.
There will be follow-up posts by Town Leaders for some of the towns.
Researchers interested in the latest status for their town(s) are
invited to write to [TownName]@jri-poland.org.

Reminder: the JRI-Poland search system has many features and options
that are exclusive to JRI-Poland. (While JRI-Poland indices are
displayed on and form the major component of the JewishGen All-Poland
Database, the additional features for searching are only available as a
standard option when you use the JRI-Poland search page. So, bookmark
the JRI-Poland search page the next time you use it.)

JRI-Poland invites your support for the work on your town. We are
particularly hopeful that researchers using our database who have not
contributed in the past, will join with their family members and
landslayt to support further work on their town's records. Please
remember that JRI-Poland is an independent organization with its own
administration and fundraising, and that donations to JewishGen do not
cover the cost of indexing records >from Poland. To donate to projects
for the extraction of records for your town project, please go to
http://www.jri-poland.org/support.htm. No donation is too small.

Best wishes for a health and joyous Pesach.

The Co-Chairs of the 36th Annual IAJGS Conference wish all of you a
happy Passover. Whether you are spending the seders with family or
friends who are just like family, reminiscing about seders of the past
will probably be heard around your seder table.

But, what do you do with those stories, and how do you get them stored
or filed? How do you fit the disconnected pieces of your tree together?
And speaking of which, what about all those brick walls?

Now is the time to take advantage of early pricing to attend the
conference that can help you with all those issues and more. The annual
IAJGS conference is the largest annual genealogy conference that focuses
on uniquely Jewish research and brick walls while at the same time
helping attendees to learn and master best practices of genealogical
research, recording and reporting.

This year, we offer 230+ conference sessions, evening entertainment, a
film festival, and more, all in beautiful Seattle. Join us 7-12 August
2016. If you can't join us, consider registering for our LIVE! streaming
of over 50 sessions, and the audio recordings of almost all our sessions.

Please take this opportunity to visit our website
(http://www.iajgs2016.org/ )and register before April 30 at 11:59 PM
Pacific Daylight Time, when the early pricing disappears! You'll still
be able to register after that, but the price goes up!

Looking forward to seeing you in Seattle

Re: New Belarus Website #belarus

Max Preston
 

Thanks to everyone who worked on the new website!

I wanted to point out some links that might be helpful to add to the
website related to Vitebsk:

(1) Some Vitebsk area duma lists were posted online a couple months
ago: https://vitebskareadumalists.shutterfly.com/

(2) A Jewish magazine in Belarus (I think) compiled a list of people
from Vitebsk killed in WWII:
http://mishpoha.org/martirolog/martirolog.pdf.

Also, I don't see anyone listed on the website who is heading up a
Vitebsk district research group. Is there no such group?

Thanks!

Researching PESTUNOWITZ, WITTENSOHN, GORBUNOFF, and LAZERSON all from
Vitebsk. Also variations on the names like PESTUNOVICH, PISTUNOVICH,
VITINZON, VITENZON, and GORBUNOV.


JRI-Poland adds more Warszawa Vital Records Data #general

hadassahlipsius
 

In commemoration of the start of the Warszawa Ghetto Uprising on the Eve of
Passover, April 19, 1943, Jewish Records Indexing-Poland has added
nearly 5,600 more Warszawa vital records to the JRI-Poland database.

Updates were made to the following projects:

1) Additional extracts for the Warszawa LDS Jewish data covering the
1826-1865 time period (Fond 180). This dataset now consists of over
70,000 records. We have begun to add image links to this file and the first
film that was linked is LDS microfilm 069531

2) Additional extracts for the Warszawa Jewish records >from Fond 200
covering the 1864-1915 time period. This group of files contains over
83,000 records of which 83% are now image linked.

Our researchers are working on the data extracts and filling in the gaps on what
has not been done. Each successive year another year becomes available for
indexing. Though many of the records were destroyed or disappeared during the
decimation of the city during World War II, we still have many more records to
extract.

Happy Passover.
