JRI Poland has completed of Phase 1 of this project. Comments from Howard Fink, Database Manager of this project,
"I am very happy, and relieved, to announce that Phase 1 of the huge Jewish Records Indexing Poland / JewishGen "1929 Polish Business Directory Project" is complete: the indexing of all of the towns in the Directory is finished. JRI-Poland volunteers completed the data entry of the town index in early December and I have spent the last several weeks editing the data.
The file of the index of towns, identified as "województwo" (province) or "powiat" (district), is larger than almost any of the individual town vital records databases in the JRI- Poland database. The Business Directory Town Index identifies over 34,000 towns. This in itself provides an exciting new resource, similar to ShtetlSeeker."
