Family and DNA
Ilya, a very preliminary comment -- the files often have multiple
years, so I'd suggest avoiding that as the first part of the name.
But more basically, why should all the files be renamed? When
Alex Kravkovsky or other folks upload to Wikipedia, they name the
files already, usually in a certain manner but not always. They
are uploaded often to 2 spots, I don't know why, so for instance
that file you are talking about can be found at both:
And more importantly, where is this list of files you want
supposed to be? On Wikipedia? (in which case you can do it,
anybody can contribute) On JewishGen?
Somebody (Wikipedia user name Madvin usually??) is adding place info to these files in Wikipedia, & besides the main "Shtetl" page where you can see Jewish files, & the individual archive pages (start at https://uk.wikisource.org/wiki/Архіви then choose your archive such as DAKO), there are geographical pages (see the green box on right side of the screen on the main archive page, with the middle linking to "geo" https://uk.wikisource.org/wiki/Архіви/Гео). Slowly but surely places are being linked to documents, but it's *very* incomplete.
If it's on the JewishGen site, it has to be in some sort of database form that is dynamic to reflect the constant updates, all that is to be discussed with the folks there, but I wanted to reply to your mail.
