bircza online lists

[bircza online header]


In research on Bircza, I have come across many useful lists of residents, survivors, and more. These lists are of great use to genealogists and other researchers. I have organised as best I can and posted them here. Browse the lists by using the index at right, rather than scrolling down, since some of the lists are larger and are located on separate pages. Some, like the commerce listings, were donated graciously by various individuals, whom I thank for their kind help. Likewise, if you have information, please share it with the rest of the Bircza researcher community by contacting me.
