Jaroslaw and Radymno vital record images online #poland #galicia

The Przemysl Branch of the Polish State Archives recently added to its website scans of many Jewish vital records from Jaroslaw and Radymno:

Jaroslaw births 1877-1916, marriages and deaths 1877-1936

Radymno births, marriages, and deaths 1877-1913

These are the earliest and latest years for which there are scanned records, but some years in the ranges are missing. For many years, there are also scanned index books.

There is a lot of overlap with the online indexes produced by JRI-Poland, but there are scans of records that do not appear in the online indexes. The Przemysl site does not have a search interface itself, you must browse the images, so, if you cannot find a record in JRI-Poland's indexes, you can try to find it in the scanned index books. The index books are alphabetized by surname and tell you the corresponding record number (akt), so you can browse to find the record scan. If you consult the index books, keep in mind that people might be listed with either parent's surname and married women might be listed with their maiden names.

To view the images, go to http://www.przemysl.ap.gov.pl/skany, then change the top drop-down option "Nr zespolu" to "2136" for Jaroslaw or "2231" for Radymno and press the "Szukaj" button at the bottom. You will see a table where each row corresponds to a vital event (birth, marriage, death), year, and item type (e.g., metrical book, index book, duplicates). In the first column on the left, "Sygnatura," is a link to the corresponding images. Clicking that link brings up a small image of the first scan with links below it to jump to other images. Clicking a small image will enlarge it. When viewing an enlarged image, you can press the right or left arrow to move forward or backward one image, and there is an icon on the left of a downward arrow in a circle, which you can click to download the image to your computer.

I have not carefully examined the records and regret that I cannot offer any additional assistance at this time.

Thanks to the Przemysl Archives for continuing to make their holdings accessible online (also including numerous notary records, among other things).
