I have a question of great curiosity. If all of us are searching the
same thing -- information about our ancestors -- why are there separate
projects based on religion? Has there ever been an effort made to unite
the Christian and Jewish efforts to research, index, catalog, etc.
information about ALL the Polish people?

Subject: [POLAND] 1929 Polish Business Directory
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."
