Seeking death records for my paternal grandparents. My grandfather, Fajwel Konigsberg was born in 1873 in Kresge, Poland. He died very young in Tarnogrod, Poland. My grandmother, Majta Konigsberg (nee Bergerman was born in 1870, probably Bilgoraj, Poland. She, too, died very young. They probably died between 1904 and 1918 and I'm guessing closer to 1910.
Also seeking my mother's birth record. Her name was Feige Malke Konigsberg Glicklich. She was born in Tarnogrod between 1899 and 1903 and emigrated to New York in 1920.
I've found records for some of my mother's siblings on JRI-Poland but haven't found her birth record.
What office in Poland would I contact via email that might have the above records?
Also, which Jewish Gen group do the towns Tarnogrod and Bilgoraj belong to? Thanks so much.
The outstanding efforts of JRI-Poland town leaders and research area coordinators who coordinate
the activity and coordinate fundraising to pay the costs of hiring professionals, is illustrated by the
following response to the inquiry for Rosalie Baker.
The records to which Rosalie asks about fall under the mission of Jewish Records Indexing - Poland's
to index/extract all the records of Poland. For an overview of JRI-Poland current activity, please read:
Both the birth and marriage records to which Rosalie first refers have been indexed by JRI-Poland.org.
Here are the entries as they appear in an online search of the JRI-Poland database.
Notice that links are provided to digital images of that actual records.
Rosalie also asks about her mother Feige Malka's birth record in Tarnogrod. While the Tarnogrod
records have also been indexed by JRI-Poland and appear online, these records have now also
been fully extracted. However, the full extractions do NOT appear online because fundraising
is ongoing to enable us to offset the costs of this work. (The 1868 to 1915 records of Congress
Poland are in Russian and the data entry of extractions of these records is carried out by paid
professionals who are experts in Polish spellings of names and spellings and locations of towns.)
When funding is complete, these full extractions will appear online.
To illustrate what is contained in "full extracts," the following are the births of Feige Malka's brother
and sister and the death of her mother as they appear in our internal files.
Our data also includes the death of Feiga Malka's father Feiwel but is not included here.
Feige Malka's birth was not registered. However, our later data includesthe marriage of Feige Malka
to Josef Szoel GLIKLICH and the marriage of Feige Malka's sister Hena Ryfka.
Please support the data entry and extractions of the records for your town(s) so that you too
can build a picture of your ancestry document your family. For more information about your
town's records, write to [townname]@jri-poland.org
Best wishes to all in 2021. May it be a year of health and success.
