Poland and Danzig Business Directory 1926-7 #poland

I join the others in thanking Logan Kleinwachs >from the depths of my
husband's heart (it is his family that comes >from Poland).
As some have mentioned doing comparisions of 1926/7 and 1929 - don't forget
one row below is the 1923 directory.

We now have in our genealogical addressbook a collection of addresses
running >from 1910 through 1940 based on the varous directories. As stated
before in the NY library there are telephone directories for Warsaw >from
various years in the 1930's.

I believe the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw has the 1910 directory
for Warsaw. If so, is it possible to scan it into PDF and have Logan build
a OCR index? It would be a great help for filling in the blanks.

I also had a wonderful time searching this directory and add my thanks. I
found it curious, however, that my relatives were not listed in this
directory but WERE in the 1929 directory. Was one more popular than the
other or did people pay to be listed?

from my perspective, it is possible, so long as the scan and original are of
sufficient quality, and JHI Warsaw does not object. However, I want to
emphasize that I have not created indices a la JRI-Poland, but rather
searchable text files.

I appreciate your comments and I am glad that you have found this to be
useful.
