Research in Poland and Ukraine #galicia

Daniel Kazez <dkazez@...>
 

I have now hired four different researchers in Poland and
Ukraine. I have had mixed results--most very good, and one
very bad. But I have learned one thing: In my particular
cases, the most reputable researchers stated a fee (often as
a per-hour rate; plus expenses) and collected all or most of
the fee after the research was complete--rather than stating a
single large fee and collecting it up front, before any research
has begun. Please note that there are many researchers around
the world. My remarks refer only to my specific experiences.
I am not attempting to make generalizations, state an unbending
rule, or recommend proper behavior for researchers to follow.

More Tarnopol Births Indices Online #galicia

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is proud to announce the addition of nearly
7,000 Tarnopol birth indices for 1882-1892. There are now over 12,500
Tarnopol Birth indices covering years 1866-1892 on the JRI-Poland database.
These indices are the result of JRI-Poland's agreement with the Polish State
Archives to index all the 19th Century vital records for 82 towns in the
former Eastern Galicia area (currently located in Ukraine) that are held by
the AGAD Archives in Warsaw.

To search the database, go to <http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/jriplweb.htm>
and enter your surname of interest. To narrow your search to the towns in
East Galicia (current Ukraine), enter Province = "Ukraine." To narrow your
search to only Tarnopol, enter Town = "Tarnopol."

In my announcement of October 24, I provided detailed instructions to search
the database and order records of interest >from the AGAD Archives. You can
find these instructions by using the JewishGen SIG Lists Archives, which can
be accessed at <http://www.jewishgen.org/wconnect/wc.isa?jg~jgsys~sigspop>.
Search for "Tarnopol" and you will find my October 24 posting.

I wish all Tarnopol area researchers great success in their search of the
database. If you do find success, I would appreciate if you would post your
experiences on this forum.

The addition of further indices for Tarnopol and the other towns in the
Tarnopol Area depend on reaching certain financial goals. To find out how you
can help accelerate the addition of further indices to the Tarnopol database,
please see our webpage at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/agad/agad_tarnopol.htm> or contact me at
<willie46@aol.com>. The webpage also lists the other 12 towns whose vital
records registers are part of the Tarnopol Area project.

To follow the progress of this project in more detail, please subscribe to
the JRI-Poland List. This can easily be done at

Our ACCESS to JewishGen.Org is via a Web Browser. Both MAC and PC run Web

NETSCAPE. It is the browser that lets you access the site, with an Internet
connection running. If you can do email you more than likely have internet
connectivity, now all you need to do is open your browser and go to

Once on the Home Page go to the section entitled, PROJECTS AND ACTIVITIES,
