Finding Tomaszow Poland Records - Post 1890 records #poland
I believe the old LDS records may have gone to only 1890 or so - but the Polish archives has been scanning records and it appears that birth records past 1900 are available (and some are now indexed on Jewishgen - and while I saw birth records for 1902 on jewishgen, I did not see your mothers).
You can find them here:
Look for the lines with the years after 1900 and the words Akta urodzeń (Akta =Records, urodzen=Birth)
They appear to be written in Russian, with some names highlighted in Polish (essentially the same as English for names) - so while reading through hundreds of records is probably a daunting task, it at least appears they are there!
Sophia is referring to the town of Tomaszów Lubelski, 124 km SE of Lublin
and not Tomaszów Mazowiecki, 57 km SE of Łódź.
To find answers to the status of record indexing/extraction of Polish towns,
contact the JRI-Poland town leader for each town! Click on the "Your Town"
link on the JRI-Poland navigation bar on the home page https://jri-poland.org
The link for Tomaszów Lubelski will take you to: https://jri-poland.org/town/tomaszow_lubels.htm
By contacting the Town Leader, you will learn that all the records in the Zamosc
branch of the Polish State Archives have been ether indexed or fully extracted
up to 1913!
Moreover, because Polish privacy laws now allow access to births up to 1919
(i.e. more than 100-years old) and marriages and deaths up to 1939 (more than
80-years old), JRI-Poland now has extracts of these records as well.
JRI-Poland Town Leaders are available to help you in your research. Another
way to reach ANY Town Leader is to write to [townname]@jri-poland.org
