During the past two weeks=, the Archiwum Panstwowe w Bialymstoku has
added significantly more digital images to its online collection of
Jewish birth, marriage, divorce and death records. Unlike many earlier
images, which were copied directly >from Mormon Church microfilms,
these new images have been newly scanned >from original records at
higher resolution.

Examples of new scans include vital records >from the 1870s. Shown

I find the index for my grandfather Jakob Berlinski but cannot find
the scan. Am I doing this incorrectly or does this not exist? Also, I
hope to visit Lodz this summer. Can I gain access to these or other
records of birth, location of residence, etc there or here before I
leave the U.S.? Thank you.

I already thanked Logan yesterday, but I would like to share with this
group the emotional connection I felt when I found the registration
cards for both my Father's and Mother's families. Aside >from seeing
the names of Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles I never met, I also learned
for the first time, the name of a great grandfather. This for me is a
real treasure, which I immediately shared with my own children, niece
and nephews.

I am now anxiously awaiting the release of more names, so that I can
search for my Father-In-law's family record as well.

Thank you once again.

Spelling of names may be different than what you expect. For instance,
my Bursztajn family suddenly became Burstein, a German spelling, but
went back to Bursztajn later. So don't be put off if the spelling is
a little different.

These documents are the registration cards that one fills out in order
to be registered in the Spis Ludnosci, that is, the official Books of
Residents of a town/city. They contain name of head of household and
his/her occupation (widow can be listed as head of household),
religion,
birthplace and birth date and where they lived before. They also have
the name of the spouse and where born, and the names of children and
their birthplace and birthdate. There is also an address where they
live, and changes of address are recorded. All in all, a very
wonderful
resource. Thanks Logan!

Subject: Lodz Census Registration Cards 1916-1921
From: Logan Kleinwaks <kleinwaks@...>
Date: Thu, 17 Dec 2015 13:30:49 -0500
X-Message-Number: 1

Scans of about 135,000 Lodz registration cards with census-like
genealogical information stated as being >from 1916-1921 are now
viewable online, organized roughly alphabetically by surname of head
of household.

Here is a typical example, a card for Hersz STEINHARDT and family:

http://www.szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/221/0/4.12/25117/str/1/3/100/
aTIb2A5a0XMzB59jHKqu6g/#tabSkany

To view the scans, first go to the list of groups of scans at:

http://www.szukajwarchiwach.pl/39/221/0/4.12/str/1/2000#tabJednostki

Note the last column on the right, Number of Scans/Liczba Skanow. If
that is 0, there are no scans available for the group. For example,
there are currently very few scans for surnames beginning with A-J.
(I do not know if/when additional scans will be added.)

Clicking the title of a group (e.g., [Spis ludnosci Lodzi]
Sztajnberg-Sztejnke) will bring up an overview page, with a red tab at
the top. Click the link to the right of the red tab, Scans/Skany.
This will lead to a group of thumbnail images, 15 per page by default.

Note that the alphabetization is not always precise and sometimes is
based on a Polish version of the surname. For example, Steinhardt
appears with Sztajnhart in the Szt- section, not in the St- section.

Clicking on a thumbnail will enlarge it. On the enlarged image, there
is an icon near the bottom right that looks like a white rectangle on
a black circle -- clicking that will open a new window to display a
high-resolution image. Because of the size of the high-resolution
image, it might not be fully visible on your screen, but you can
click, hold, and drag it with your mouse to change the visible region.
To save a high-resolution image to your computer, click the
Download/Pobierz link below the image, in the bottom center.

I have not examined these scans carefully, and I regret that I am not
able to offer further information about this material or individual
assistance.

Lodz Census Registration Cards 1916-1921 now linked from JRI-Poland search results #lodz #poland

Roni S. Liebowitz
 

A few days ago, the Polish State Archives announced that digital images of
about 135,000 Lodz registration cards were added to the the PSA's National
Digital Archives www.szukajwarchiwach.pl website. (Thanks to Logan
Kleinwaks for quickly alerting researchers to this addition).

The cards contain name of head of household and his/her occupation,
religion, birthplace and birth date and where they lived before. They also
include name of the spouse and where born, and names of children and their
birthplace and birth date. There is also an address where they live, and
changes of address are recorded.

As a result of quick action by Jewish Records Indexing - Poland's database
manager, Michael Tobias, the following link to those cards now appears in
the JRI-Poland search results table for any records relating to Lodz:
"Click here for a new source of Lodz records" alerting researchers
to this new source.
http://jri-poland.org/psa/lodz-registration-card-scans.htm

The web page describes the source and includes links to the images by
alphabetical grouping of surnames.

The importance of this new source is underlined by the post made yesterday
on the Lodz Area Research Group list by Ron Brandt who wrote:

"I would like to share with this group the emotional connection I felt when
