The Czestochowa-Radomsko Area Research Group was founded in 2003. Since then, its membership has grown tenfold and its database of records has grown to well over 800,000, including Holocaust, tombstone, synagogue, birth, marriage, death, emigration, immigration, draft, taxation, craftsman, and 1790s census records.
CRARG in the News
CRARG was featured in an Associated Press article (PDF or jpg) that appeared around the world.
Among more than 600 completed projects, CRARG has taken photographs of every tombstone in the Jewish cemeteries of many of CRARG’s core towns, has translated all of information on every tombstone, and has made that information searchable by both given name and surname.

Contribute to CRARG! CRARG is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Contributions to CRARG are tax-deductible for U.S. citizens. All funding is used for typing archival documents.
Whether you are just beginning your search or you are a seasoned researcher, I hope you will find something new on our site—perhaps “new” cousins, the profession of your grandfather, the street address of your great aunt’s family, the tombstone of a loved one, or records of your family before they adopted a surname. I am the founder and president of CRARG (a nonpaid position). We devote all financial contributions to translating and typing archival document. I began making my family tree in 1997, with no idea where in Poland my family was from. My family tree now includes nearly 3000 cousins, aunts, uncles, and direct ancestors, and it stretches back to 1735, in about a dozen CRARG towns. I hope that you will have equal success with your family tree!
—Daniel Kazez (email@example.com), CRARG President
