Major new Głowno records extraction project launched #announcements #names #lodz #poland #russia


Long-time Glowno area researchers will be pleased to learn that Jewish Records Indexing - Poland has undertaken a huge new Phase 3 project to fully extract all Glowno birth, marriage and death records from 1826 to 1913.  

Until now a basic index of births, marriages and deaths for the period 1877-1913 has been available.  To carry out this major initiative, we have acquired scans (digital images) of all surviving Glowno records in the Łódź branch of the Polish State Archives. With your help, we are now looking to produce detailed extractions of the records in our possession, which span nearly 100 years.

In addition, we would like to help Glowno researchers access other key sources including pre-1825 patronymic records and Glowno Books of Residents covering the period 1893-1931.

If you would like more information the Glowno Phase 3 Town Project, please sign up here.  Once you have subscribed, you will receive a full description of the project, explaining how you will be able to obtain extracts of records relating to your family. A qualifying donation of US$200 to the Glowno Phase 3 Town Project will ensure you are first in line to receive your family records as they become available and before they go online.  Details of how to donate can be found here (please indicate - Town Name: 'Glowno', Project Description or Special Instructions: Phase 3).
