Funds needed for major GLOWNO extraction project 1877-1913 #poland


Last September, JRI-Poland announced a project to fully extract all Jewish birth, marriage and death records from Glowno (please see Sep 2021 announcement here).


We are now seeking to raise funds to have 35 years of Cyrillic birth, marriage and death records professionally extracted for the period 1877-1913. Although there are some gaps for the years 1881-2, 1887, 1905, this represents about 5000 records. As well as producing much more detailed extractions of the entries already indexed online which go up to 1904, this will add 9 more years to the indexed records available online. 


If you have an interest in Glowno and are able to make a ‘qualifying donation’ of US$200 towards the Glowno Town Fund, you will be given priority access to newly extracted records about your family, as soon as they become available and before they go online. Full extractions will only be added to JRI-Poland’s website when the project is fully funded, which may take some time. 


Details of how to donate can be found here. You may need to register a free account with JRI-Poland, if you don’t already have one. In the required fields on the donation, please specify Town Name = 'Glowno’; Project Description or Special Instructions = Phase 3.
