Thanks to Logan Kleinwaks (of genealogyindexer.org) who recently posted about the existence of two books that list residents of Kańczuga, which it seems cover the years 1931-1944.
These are actually part of a larger number of scanned documents (24 as of this writing) related to Kańczuga, which include:
The two entries at the end of the above list are the resident books. Links in the table will take you to the page on the State Archives site for that document, which shows a summary of information on the document. Click on the tab at the top that says ‘Digital copies’ to see the thumbnails of the scans for the document, and click on the thumbnails to load a larger version of each image.
As the user interface for navigating and viewing the larger images is a bit difficult, I’ve created PDFs of each book, which can be downloaded from this site. The pages are not as big as the original, and are compressed more than the original, in order to be possible to download (as it is the files are each over 60mb – but if I had just combined the original files they would be over 200mb each).
If you want to get the higher-resolution images, follow the links to the books above (the last two rows of the table), and download the original image(s) that you need.
I haven’t yet had a chance to go through the books and see which names can be extracted yet, and I don’t even know how they’re organized and what years are covered (only the 1931-1944 range given), so if you do go through them and want to help other by commenting below what you’ve found, that would be great.
Thanks also to Marla Raucher Osborn, who spotted Logan’s post before me and posted about it on Facebook.
