Announcing the Sulejow, Poland PSA Indexing Project #poland

Gloria Berkenstat Freund
 

I am happy to announce that the indexing of the birth, marriage and death
records for Sulejow for the years 1873 to 1903 has been completed at the
Piotrkow-Trybunalski branch of the Polish State Archives. The period of
these records covers the years when many of our grandparents and
great-grandparents lived in Sulejow. I have a list of the surnames in this
index (which includes surname spelling variations) and their frequency in
the index which I will be happy to send to anyone who wishes to look at it.

Some of the most frequently mentioned surnames are:
BIRENCWAJG, GOLD, GOLDBERG, GROSBERG, JURKEWICZ, LAJZEROWICZ,
LIBERMAN, NEJMAN, ROZENBLUM and ROZENCWAJG.

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 1873-1903 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 $600. $150 has already
been donated. If you make a contribution of $100 or more, you will be
eligible to receive an Excel file with the complete index for the town of
Sulejow.

Contributions to JRI-Poland are tax-deductible for US and Canadian
taxpayers. Make sure to indicate that your contribution is for the Sulejow
indexing project.

the Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives for

Karen S. Franklin creates a web of intrigue as she describes how she
utilized documents >from the Archives and other resources to
reconstruct the Brylawski family history and trace the meaning of a
cane handle she purchased at auction for William Wolf of Washington,

Brylawski in 1886 for service to his synagogue, Anshe Emeth of

one could read because it was written in Hebrew letters but in words
from Spanish, Turkish, Ladino and Hebrew, records daily Jewish life
in Izmir and the perils of Jewish holidays for the community. If ever
you wondered how our ancestors lived, this diary and Ben Abir's
explanations are critical to that knowledge.

Mare, for GRUN (great-grandfather), Halmeu (Halmi), a bit farther north,
for FARKAS (great-grandmother)

A very special source of information about our families' pre-WWII history
is the Survivors Registry at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. You can
search the database by town name. The staff will forward letters ch
respondendent offered me another piece of the puzzle about the towns,
cemeteries, and pre-war life. However, over 7 years I've lost touch.

Imagine the surprise of being on the same stage with one of the generous
Halmeu/Halmi informants! Completely a coincidence. What a wonderful
opportunity to meet in person. If you're interested in historic
Transylvania OR in oral history OR wonderful coincidences, check out the
