Hi Howie,

I was born and raised in Los Angeles and I do not know what those numbers
mean either. I would add all the information you can when doing your
search. The only information I can give you is that California's zip codes
start with 9----. So the 19 number would have to be at the end if in fact
those numbers have anything to do with the zip codes.

Good Luck on your search.

What you received is the "official extract" and there is only place
in that document for the fields you mentioned.

To get more detailed information you can try writing to the
Civil Records Office (attaching a copy of the extract) and ask
them to fill in the missing information.

In some cases, I have heard of USCs providing additional
information over the telephone. I.e. the request is made
and the reply is "please call back in [ ] hours or [ ] days
and I will get that information for you." However, if you go
that route, I would recommend you only ask about ONE
records.

Short of all that, a personal visit by you or a researcher authorized
on your behalf are the only other ways.

LUTOMIERSK late 19th Century records #poland

[This message is being sent to multiple mailing lists; if you
receive more than one copy please accept my apologies]

Late 19th Century Records For Lutomiersk to be indexed; you
have a unique opportunity to help

Late 19th Century Records For Lutomiersk
Making it accessible - on-line.
It's happening now

Dear Fellow Researchers,

Many of us researching our ancestors >from Poland have found valuable
information in the microfilms of the LDS Family History Centers. For
the last several years, this effort has gained momentum because more
than 900,000 of the records in the LDS collection have been indexed
and are available on the Internet through the searchable database of
Jewish Records Indexing- Poland (http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL).
The indexes themselves provide valuable genealogical data and enable
one to zero in on specific documents for further research.

The LDS films for Lutomiersk end in 1868, just before we get to the
records for the people we know through family stories or contemporary
records.

But now, indexes to Polish-Jewish records for the years not filmed
by the Mormons - 1869 - 1874, 1876 - 1877, 1879, 1881, 1889, and
1892 - are in the process of development and addition to the Jewish
Records-Indexing -Poland database under a groundbreaking agreement
between JRI-Poland and the Polish State Archives (PSA). For
information about the PSA project see:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/psastat.htm

This means that when indexes are completed for Lutomiersk, this
new material will finally allow you to expand your research into
a time period that has been elusive and beyond your reach. In most
cases this period - 1869-1892 - is the missing link in our
genealogical chain - the time when our grandparents and their sisters
and brothers were born and were married. Once these indexes are
completed, you may simply print out an order form >from the Jewish
Records Indexing-Poland web site and order the records >from the
Polish State Archives.

I have agreed to take on the responsibility of Lutomiersk Town
Leader. Please join me in making this extremely worthwhile and
exciting project a success.

Your participation in this project can help bring to light
information you may have never imagined you would find. Please
spread the word to everyone you are in contact with who has an
interest in Lutomiersk -- family, friends, co-researchers. All
should be encouraged to participate.

The Lodz branch archives has extensive records for the city of
Lodz and many towns in the area. The list of towns whose partial,
or complete, records are contained in the Lodz branch archive may
be seen at:
http://www.shtetlinks.jewishgen.org/Lodz/

Updates on the JRI-Poland/PSA Lutomiersk will be available
in the future at:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JRI-PL/psa/psastat.htm, click on "Status
Report: PSA Project Underway" which is the last line in the heading
of this page. On the Status Report page, click on "Lodz" in the
drop-down menu.

Please note that many Jews moved to Lodz in the late 1800's
and early 1900's. Therefore, if your relatives "came from
Lodz" they may have had ancestors in nearby towns such as
Lutomiersk. It may be worth to check!

If you have any questions, please do not hestitate to ask.

Sincerely,

Marcos Frid
Lutomiersk Town Leader

Re: NYC Marriage Record Info/Skalat, thank you! #poland

Asparagirl <asparagirl@...>
 

Let me echo Pamela Weisberger's message here: the NYC marriage records rock!
You can find sooooo much stuff in them, and I've found that they're really
easy to search through. There's separate bride and groom indexes, so you can
do searching by last name easily. And compared to the faded and hard-to-read
and separated out by month AND borough birth records (or worse yet, the
*Soundexed* death records index which are all squished together in something
like 40-years-at-once index rolls- do you know how many SCHWARTZ's and
SEIGEL's there were in NYC? Aaaaaugh!), the marriage indexes and records are
very easy to use and decipher.

Researching in person at the archives is best, if you can do it (it's in a
beautiful old building right next to City Hall, so you can take the subway),
but requests by mail are usually thorough and take about a month.

Happy hunting!

Dear Fellow Researchers,

You are invited to visit the updated Piotrkow Trybunalski ShtetLinks site.
Much more information has been added, mainly historical articles, several
articles on Jewish life before the Shoah, events in the Piotrkow ghetto and a
personal memoir. Images of pre-war life and a street map of the ghetto are
new to the site.

The articles may be of interest to many of you because of the mention of
regional towns, especially in the articles about the ghetto.

I hope you enjoy browsing through the site. Feel free to check back
periodically, as more information will be added as time permits.
