Here is some exciting news about a new Krakow project.

An order has been placed to photocopy indices of Krakow records
not previously microfilmed by the Mormons. The indices for the
following types/years are being copied:

Births: 1855-1867 and 1890-1899
Marriages: 1852-1876 and 1889-1899
Deaths: 1855

Because the Krakow records are in Polish/German, the data entry
will be done by volunteers - not the JRI-Poland data entry team
in Warsaw that normally does the work on the Cyrillic records.

Now volunteers are needed! Help us with data entry so that
these indices can be posted to the Jewish Records Indexing -
Poland on-line database. If you have never worked on a project
such as this, now is the time to try. Novices are definitely
welcome as volunteers and I can assure you that you will get
all the help you need.

This is the first phase of the project. The second phase will
be the data entry by the Archivist in Krakow - for those years
that do not have index pages.

To volunteer to do data entry or if you have any questions,
please contact:
