What Is the Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP?

We formed the CO-OP in August 2000, following the IAJGS Conference in Salt Lake City. Originally, our purpose was to translate and make publicly available the approximately 15,000 vital records (birth, marriage, and death records from 1870 through 1907) that the Latter-Day Saints had recently microfilmed.

The records are in Russian and Hebrew/Yiddish cursive writing. Some years are incomplete or missing. There are about 5,000 pages in each language! Unfortunately, there are no index pages for these records, which made our translation project even more important.

Since then, the CO-OP (now JRI-Poland's Kremenets Research Area) has undertaken many more projects.

As part of Jewish Records Indexing-Poland (JRI-Poland), we post English language indexes to the records in the JRI-Poland database and on a Contributors' website. continue reading...

How to Locate Your Family Names in Our Translated Documents

The Kremenets Shtetl CO-OP translates vital records, Yizkor Books, cemetery gravestones, and many, many more documents. When a translation is completed, we add all personal names, town names, and source document information to the Indexed Concordance of Personal Names and Town Names.

Start your search in this document. Be sure to read the Introduction section first. It tells you how to use the Concordance, identifies the source document abbreviations, and tells you how to access the source document.
