         Kielce-Radom SIG Journal  and  Jewish Records Indexing - Poland (JRI-Poland) 

An amazing resource! If I had to choose the single most valuable resource this would be at the top of the list.  The Kielce-Radom SIG Journal ceased publishing in 2004 and was subsequently absorbed into Jewish Records Indexing-Poland (JRI-Poland).  As a first step, JRI-Poland has made all of the journals available onlinehere. Ultimately all the vital record extracts in these journals will be searchable in the JRI-Poland database. Some of the valuable information in these Journals includes birth, death and marriage extractions from and surrounding communities.  The Business Directories for Radom for 1930 and 1932 are also translated so you can find addresses where your ancestors worked.  Information is available for both Radom and the towns in the surrounding region. An index is on-line at the site.

Extractions from the Kielce-Radom SIG Journal include the following Radom data:
