The "number on list" column is the number given to people on the original list. As the original list gives one number to each family, more than one individual can be registered under the same original number. There are 2,076 individual records. The names and professions appear as they were recorded on the original list. Under "miscellaneous" is recorded the work status of the individual: whether or not fit for work.
The following information was prepared by Yad Vashem from the chapter on Krosno in the Pinkas HaKehillot:
The Encyclopedia Judaica (1972, volume 10, p. 1278) confirms the above, and provides additional noteworthy details. Before World War, II 2,500 Jews lived in Krosno, with 5,870 living in smaller surrounding areas. In July 1942 the Jews from Krosno county were concentrated in Brzozow, Dukla, Jasienica, Korczyn, and Rymanov, and were deported to Belzec from there. About 800 Jews, who were able to hide but eventually were discovered, lived in the Krosno ghetto from August-December, 1942. On December 2, 1942 the ghetto was liquidated and the remaining persons were shipped to Rzeszow. Note that the Pinkas HaKehillot article mentions that the remaining were sent to Rzeszow on December 4.
The information contained in this database was indexed as part of the data sharing agreement between Yad Vashem and JewishGen. Thanks to Zvi Bernhardt and the Hall of Names staff, the data was provided from the files of Yad Vashem (file 06/363). This information is accessible to you today, thanks to the efforts of the following JewishGen volunteer who is responsible for the transcription of this file: Harriet Brown.
