Re: The letter dated 5.07.2013

Our reference: OII.6344.365.2013

Date: 17 July 2013

The State Archives in Lodz wish to advise that the actual birth certificate of Maria Kiper (as per wording that the very certificate indicates) dated 1882 was located within Jewish Community of Lodz civil registration records at entry no 823.

Should you wish to obtain a digitized copy of the above-mentioned document and have it dispatched to yourselves by means of electronic communication, please arrange for an amount of either USD 1 or USD 2 to be paid into our bank account, the details of which are as follows:

Lodz State Archives
Pl. Wolnosci 1
91-415 Lodz
NBP O/O Lodz
SWIFT CODE: NBPLPLPW
IBAN: PL 53 1010 1371 0024 2422 3100 0000


The following optional fees chargeable apply:

1 digitized copy, the actual source being microfilm = PLN 3

or alternatively

1 digitized copy, the actual source being the digitized material =PLN 6

The exchange rate for the U.S. Dollar against the Polish Zloty dated 15.07.2013 stands at 3.29, which is the National Bank of Poland mid-rate.

3: 3.29 = 0.91 ~ USD 1 or 6: 3.29 = 1.82 ~ USD 2

Please ensure Our Reference is included in the remittance text field when sending the money out.

Maciej Janik, the Deputy Head of State Archives in Lodz
7/19/2013 6:08 AM Write back to them by email asking them to send you the letter on Word format. Then copy and paste to Google Translate. I did the same. Translation is not perfect but it gives you a general idea of what they want.

They are asking you to send them money in order to send you the documents.

Regards,R.B
