The Jewish Records Indexing - Poland project has indexed a large number of records in the more than 2000 Jewish Vital Record registers in AGAD. Pease go to the JRI-Poland site for more details
This following list of records is available from AGAD (Archiwum Glowne Akt Dawnych), the Polish National Archives branch responsible for old documents.
These records are known as the “Zabużańskie archive,” which holds record books of the Jewish and Roman Catholic denominations that were formerly located in the Kresy (territories of Poland that became part of the USSR after 1944). The Zabużańskie books are currently stored at the Urząd Stanu Cywilnego m.st. Warszawy (Registry Office of the Capital City of Warsaw) but are gradually being transferred to the Archiwum Główne Akt Dawnych (Central Archive of Historical Records).
