The Jews of Kraków and its Surrounding Towns


Krakow Area Research Forum

Anyone interested in Krakow research is welcome to join the Krakow Area Research Forum... an informal grouping of researchers with a specific interest in Krakow Jewish genealogy. The Group communicates with each other via email to exchange ideas, advice or requests. Since there is enough Krakow data to go back about 250 years, we have found that most Krakow researchers are related in someway. In other words, if your ancestors came from Krakow, the chances are that some of your genealogical history has already been discovered!

This group began with 4 people in 1998, but due to the steady increase in the number of researchers, is now being hosted by RootsWeb to enable more researchers to join. If you would like to join our E-mail 'family', this is what you need to do:

  • Regular Mailing List This will enable you to receive E-mails whenever anyone in the group posts something. 

To subscribe (or unsubscribe) to the REGULAR LIST simply click here and send a message containing the word "subscribe" (or "unsubscribe").

  • Digest Mailing List This will enable you to receive a digest of all E-mails. It is sent every 72 hours.
