Bobowa Indexing Project #poland


Eden Joachim <esjoachim@...>
 

I have some very exciting news for Bobowa area researchers. Jewish Records
Indexing - Poland has indexed all surviving Bobowa birth and death records
in the Skolyszyn sub-branch of the Rzeszow branch of the Polish State
Archives.

The breakdown of record types and availability is:
Births: 1850, 1854, 1857-1859, 1861-1866, 1868-1870, 1872-1895
Deaths: 1877-1904

Bobowa is located at 49 42 / 20 56, about 30 km ENE of Nowy Sacz and
15 km N of Grybów.

The other surrounding towns and villages most frequently mentioned in the
Bobawa vital records are Ciezkowice, Brzana Dolna, Nowy Sacz, Zborowice,
Wojnarowa, Lipnica, Gorlice, Brzana Górna, Kasna Górna, Ostrusza, and
Falkowa. All towns appearing 10 or more times are listed at the end of
this message.

INDICES TO THE PRE-1905 RECORDS IN THE SLOLYSZYN ARCHIVES
There are 1027 birth and 637 death entries in the Bobowa records for this
period . There are 793 different surnames. The surnames with 25 or more
entries are listed below and a file with the frequency of all surnames is
available.

These are **extended** indices and include the following information:

Surname
Given Name
Father's Name
Mother's Name
Mother's Maiden Name
Year of record
Year of event
Act Number
Town (other than Bobowa when mentioned)
Comments (usually includes dates of death if event occurred while the
register was active)

These pre-1905 indices will not be publicly available online until this
project has been fully funded through contributions. The fundraising target
for these indices is $600. While a donation of any amount is greatly
appreciated, a contribution of US $50 will qualify you to be eligible to
obtain an Excel spreadsheet containing all birth and death entries prior
to 1905.

Qualified Contributors are asked to sign a Database Sharing Agreement.
Upon receipt of the agreement, qualified contributors will receive a copy
of the Excel spreadsheet file with these pre-1905 indices. The Excel file
includes a special order form enabling you to order copies of these records
directly >from the Polish State Archives.

We hope you will support the indexing of the Bobowa Vital Records for your
own research and for the benefit of future generations. Information on how
to make a donation to the Bobowa project follows below:
