It is possible that Hemkiet is a diminutive of Hemie (Chemie) [In

Sulmierszyce Indexing Project - This is where your iIllusive ancestors may be #poland

Gloria Berkenstat Freund
 

Sulmierszyce is located in the same area as Czestochowa, Belchatow,
Radomsko, Pajeczno and Dzialoszyn. You may think that this town holds no
interest for you, as I did before viewing the surname list and discovering
many of the surnames for branches on my family tree.

Sulmierszyce was a small shtetl in which many families seem to have settled,
if only for a few years, on their way >from their home shtetl to the nearest
big city. The surname list for Sulmierszyce can be viewed at the JRI-Poland
website at

http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/status.htm#Piotrkow%20Trybunalski

by clicking on the Town Name, Sulmierszyce.

The indexing project for Sulmierszyce birth, marriage and death records
located at the Piotrkow Trybunalski branch of the Polish State Archives
covers the years 1889-1905. This time span covers many of the years in which
our ancestors lived in Sulmierszyce.

In order for us to have access to this database, it must be uploaded to the
JRI-Poland website. However, before this can be done, we must pay for the
expenses incurred in the creation of the database. The 1889-1905 documents
are written in the Cyrillic alphabet and the process of creating the
database involved data entry in Russian and then using a JRI-Poland macro to
transliterate the names into their Polish counterparts. Professionals were
hired in Poland to do this work.

The total cost of the creation of the database is $200. If you make a
contribution of $75 or more, you will be eligible to receive an Excel file
with the complete index for the town of Sulmierszyce. If everyone would
contribute a dollar for each of their surnames that appear on the surname
list, we would quickly raise the money needed. Please take a look at the
surname list and then make as generous a contribution as you can.

Contributions to JRI-Poland are tax-deductible for US and Canadian
taxpayers. Please make sure you indicate that your contribution is for the
Sulmierszyce indexing project.

Subject: Lodz Birth, Marriage and Death records, 1899-1905
to JRI list

Dear Lodz Researchers,

Since we have many new Lodz researchers, it is important to
review what indices are now available on-line and the status
of other Lodz indexing.

As Lodz Archive Coordinator for the Jewish Records
Indexing-Poland/Polish State Archives (JRI-Poland/PSA)
Project, I am pleased to provide this update.

1826-1877

These records were microfilmed by the LDS (Mormons) and were
indexed by volunteers under the Lodz "Shtetl CO-OP."

1878-1898

The first Lodz PSA project was for the years 1878 to 1898
and that data has been online for many years.

1899-1905

The "Seven-Year Initiative" to index 43,501 Lodz birth,
marriage and death records was launched in 2001 and all the
1899 to 1905 records were computerized by the JRI-Poland
team in Warsaw. This data was entered in the original
Cyrillic and automatically converted to Polish spelling
(Latin characters).

The indices >from 1899 to 1901 have been added to the
JRI-Poland
database and can be searched on-line.

Although completed, the indices >from 1902 to1905 cannot be
added to the on-line database until funds are raised to
cover the expenses.

For those of you not familiar with the background, in 1997
JRI-Poland entered into an agreement with the Polish State
Archives to index Jewish vital records *not* microfilmed by
the Mormons (LDS). Each year the Lodz USC ("Urzad Stanu
Cywilnego"
- civil registration office) transfers the eligible
(100-year-old) registers to the Lodz Branch of the Polish
State Archives. The records then become available to
JRI-Poland for indexing.

The 1902-1905 data will enable you to further expand your
research of the time period when not only our grandparents
and their siblings were born and married, but also when many
of our parents, aunts and uncles were born in Lodz. We hope
the
26,735 birth, marriage and death records in these four years
will result in breakthroughs in your family research!

A list of all surnames found in the new data (1899-1905) is
now online at: http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/lodz2_surn.htm

o More about the 1899 - 1905 "Lodz Seven-Year Initiative:"

Because of the vast quantity of surviving Jewish vital
records for Lodz and the large number of records that become
available for indexing each year, it was impractical to
raise funds on a year by year basis.Thus, the target of this
Initiative was to raise funds for this entire time span .
The advantage of this approach to you, the researcher, was
that you were asked to support only one project covering
these seven years, rather than a new one each year.

The Lodz Jewish vital records for these years are:

Year Entries
1899: 4,951
1900: 5,944
1901: 5,890
1902: 6,952
1903: 6,405
1904: 7,290
1905: 6,088

The budget for the "Lodz Seven-Year Initiative" is US$7,500.

The cumulative budget for each year must be met before the
data for that particular year is released to the JRI-Poland
database.

To complete the funding for the Initiative, we must raise
another $2,943. These funds will cover the years 1903 to
1905.

Whatever you contribute to the Lodz project will be
appreciated and will help bring us closer to our goal of
putting all this data online. As in the past, all
individuals (or families) contributing no less than US$100
will qualify to obtain the entire 7-year database as an
Excel file for personal research.

Your Qualifying Contribution ensures that you receive the
data now, in advance of its general availability in the
JRI-Poland Online Searchable Database. It will also enable
you to study all the Lodz record indices at once, and
perhaps find a family name whose connection you had
forgotten, or to work with the data (for example, sorting by
first name) to search for a grandmother's or
great-grandmother's elusive maiden name. Your participation
in the indexing of records for Lodz can bring to light
information you may have never imagined you would find.

The Excel file contains an order form enabling you to order
copies of those records not yet online.

For practical reasons, this detailed message is being sent
only to researchers with known email addresses. So, please
spread the word to everyone you are in contact with who has
an interest in Lodz - family, friends, co-researchers. All
should be encouraged to make a contribution.

********* ORIGINAL POST ************

I am thrilled to announce that a Belchatow Landsmann and the
Independent
Belchatower Benevolent Association have generously setup a
matching fund for
the Belchatow Book of Residents project. To date, we had
$435 of the $2200
needed to fully fund this project. With this MATCHING fund,
we now have $870
which leaves $1330 to fully fund this project. This means
for EVERY dollar
you donate to this project, the matching fund will donate
the same amount.

This is how the MATCHING fund is working. A donor >from the
US contributed
$25. The Landsmann and Independent Benevolent Association
matched that
amount so it became $50. Two donors >from the US EACH donated
$100 which then
became $400!! Wow! A Canadian donated $110 US dollars which
turned into $220
and another donor >from Canada contributed $100 US dollars
which is now $200
for the project.

This means that we will reach our goal of $2,200 TWICE as
fast! Matching
funds will continue UNTIL THANKSGIVING!!! As you can see,
we are getting
closer and closer to our final goal of fully funding the
Belchatow Book of
Residents project. If you have not yet stepped up make that
donation, I
encourage you to make your donation today!! Donations of
ANY amount are
greatly appreciated and will be part of the matching fund.
Contributors of
no less than $100 will be eligible to obtain a copy of the
Belchatow Book of
Residents excel file for their own immediate personal use.

Thank you to Belchatow researchers who have already made
donations. We are
off to a great start for reaching our final goal of fully
funding the
Belchatow Book of Residents.

Contributions to JRI-Poland are tax-deductible for US and
Canadian

Dear Belchatow Researchers,

The correct fax number is listed here:

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland, Inc.

5607 Greenleaf Road
Cheverly, MD 20785 USA

Telephone: (301) 341-1261
Fax: 1-810-592-1768 (24 hours)
E-Mail: ssalo@capaccess.org

Reminder: ALL CONTRIBUTIONS SHOULD BE MARKED "BELCHATOW BOOK
OF RESIDENTS" If you send a check, please write this on the
face of the check.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: We now have $785 toward the goal of
$2200. With the MATCHING FUND, that brings the total to
$1570! We are more than half way there! All contributions
will be matched, no matter what the amount. Send in your
donations before November 23, the deadline to have it
doubled by the MATCHING FUND. Contributors of no less than
$100 will be eligible to obtain a copy of the Belchatow Book
of Residents excel file for their own immediate personal
use.

Thank you.

********* ORIGINAL POST ************

I am thrilled to announce that a Belchatow Landsmann and the
Independent
Belchatower Benevolent Association have generously setup a
matching fund for
the Belchatow Book of Residents project. To date, we had
$435 of the $2200
needed to fully fund this project. With this MATCHING fund,
we now have $870
which leaves $1330 to fully fund this project. This means
for EVERY dollar
you donate to this project, the matching fund will donate
the same amount.

This is how the MATCHING fund is working. A donor >from the
US contributed
$25. The Landsmann and Independent Benevolent Association
matched that
amount so it became $50. Two donors >from the US EACH donated
$100 which then
became $400!! Wow! A Canadian donated $110 US dollars which
turned into $220
and another donor >from Canada contributed $100 US dollars
which is now $200
for the project.

This means that we will reach our goal of $2,200 TWICE as
fast! Matching
funds will continue UNTIL THANKSGIVING!!! As you can see,
we are getting
closer and closer to our final goal of fully funding the
Belchatow Book of
Residents project. If you have not yet stepped up make that
donation, I
encourage you to make your donation today!! Donations of
ANY amount are
greatly appreciated and will be part of the matching fund.
Contributors of
no less than $100 will be eligible to obtain a copy of the
Belchatow Book of
Residents excel file for their own immediate personal use.

Thank you to Belchatow researchers who have already made
donations. We are
off to a great start for reaching our final goal of fully
funding the
Belchatow Book of Residents.

A special session "Ask the Experts" will take place during the lunch break,
