bircza online regional 1941 name directory

[bircza online header]


This name directory is a compilation of names of Bircza area residents prior to the Nazi invasion of June 1941, using the various lists available on this website, as well as contributions from others researching Bircza and information from its current and former inhabitants. On the right side of this page, see an alphabetical list of names. Clicking on a name leads to submitter information, where you can find either the list that mentions the individual or the contact information for the genealogist who submitted him.

This is a very useful tool for locating relatives present in Bircza on the eve of the Nazi occupation, and if you have names that you can contribute, please contact Bircza Online.

1941 name directory


Click on a name below to see information about its submission to this list (and more information about the individual). Note that all females are listed by their maiden name. A note on spelling: some of these names originate in the Bircza area survivors list, which is in Hebrew. Transliteration from Hebrew notoriously varies and, furthermore, the nature of Hebrew makes it difficult to guess the vowelisation of unfamiliar names (eg, Engelard could be Anglerd, Anglered, Angelerd, and so forth), so consider all spelling options when searching below. If available, the known residence (town or village) is listed, too.
