JRI-Poland is an independent non-profit tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.
 Support Indexing of the Records for your Towns

Jewish Records Indexing - Poland is a prime example of the power of cooperative effort by volunteers and researchers with a common interest. JRI-Poland's success to date is due to the boundless energy and dedication of genealogists around the world.

While JRI-Poland is volunteer-managed, funds are needed to cover the costs of our increasing scope of indexing activities. Your valuable contributions will enable JRI-Poland to:

Index the records for your town in the Polish State Archives (not on microfilm)

Expedite the work of the Shtetl CO-OP initiative to index records on microfilm

Support the work of professional translators in translating/transliterating records from the more difficult Russian language years (for which qualified volunteers are not available)

Help build the database of records for more Shtetls and for more years as they become available
