Here's a better rendition of the message Jean forwarded:

Just wanted to be sure everyone saw this notice which includes the addition
of some new data from Podhajce.  Thanks to everyone whose contributions
to JRI-Poland made this possible.

Happy New Year to all my fellow Podhajce researchers.

Subject: New AGAD Data and Links Added to the JRI-Poland Database

Indices Placed Online
It is my pleasure to announce that data for 13 towns in Eastern Galicia
indexed at the AGAD Archive have been added to the JRI-Poland online
database as follows:

- Boryslaw 1913 BMD
- Drohobycz 1913 BMD
- Gliniany 1893-1903, 1908-1913 B
- Komarno 1877/1904 M; 1905, 1908-12 D
- Narajow 1895-1910 B
- Podhajce 1906-08 B; 1906, 1910 M

Indices Available to be Placed Online
JRI-Poland has also indexed records at the AGAD Archive that are not yet
online. Our practice is that these record indices are placed online once the
cost of indexing these records has been raised. Records for the following
towns can use your help to make them available online.

Links from AGAD Indices to Online Images

Our Database Manager Michael Tobias has now linked all the AGAD Archive
index entries up through Signature 3006 to the approximate webpage of images
containing that record. The link ("View Nearby Image" in the left hand
column of the search results webpage) should be within a few webpages of the
correct image. Researchers will need to move forward and backwards based on
the year and AKT number they want to view. Many of the AGAD records up
through 1911 now have online images.

Our linking team under the supervision of Howard Fink is working to link
index entries to the EXACT webpage of images. For these towns, the link on
the left hand column will read "View Image." The index entries for Bursztyn
and Stanislawow have now been linked to the EXACT image page.

My thanks to all the generous town project supporters and town leaders who
make the addition of this data possible and to the considerable efforts of
volunteers such as Hadassah Lipsius, Steve Zedeck, Howard Fink, Michael
Tobias, and Stanley Diamond.

Again, please consider contributing to the indexing of the records for your
town. Donations may be made online at It
is the generosity of JRI-Poland supporters who recognize the key role that
their donations have to help preserve the records of their ancestors that
make JRI-Poland successful.
