Index for a million documents on Polish Jewry to go online


(JTA) — Researchers of Polish Jewry are set to gain online access to more than 1 million new documents following an agreement signed by the Polish State Archives.

Under the agreement signed last week, Jewish Records Indexing-Poland will receive indices to the documents from the Polish archives authority and place them on the website of the online database within one year, a JRI-Poland statement read.

JRI-Poland’s searchable online database currently has 4 million documents from more than 550 towns, starting from the late 18th century, according to its website.
