New Procedures to Search the JGFF #dna

Susan E. King <susan.king@...>
 

Within the next few days, you will notice a change when you visit
the JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF). We are now implementing a
registration screen similar to that which has been in use for
searching the Family Tree of the Jewish People (FTJP) for the last
few weeks.

This change is part of a major project which has been under
development for nearly a year called "CURE" -- the Central User
Registration Environment. The intent is to cure many of the ongoing
challenges JewishGen has faced due to the phenemonal growth we
continue to experience. These challenges include forgotten
passwords, lost researchers, and duplicate registrations. Most
critical is the increasing need for tightened security which will
result in greater protection for the data you provide.

CURE will integrate all the separate registration processes for the
JGFF, the FTJP, all Lyris Mailing Lists, ViewMate, ShtetlSchleppers,
JewishGen-erosity, the JewishGen Mall, the Guest Book, and the
interactive databases. CURE will also serve to integrate the
systems used for JewishGen's administrative functions. Over the
coming months, all of these interfaces will be replaced with a
single central logon and registration point -- CURE.

Here's how it works. When accessing the JGFF to perform a search,
you will now be asked to logon using either your e-mail address or
your JewishGen ID Number (JGID, formerly called the "JGFF Researcher
Code"), and your Password. If you have forgotten either, they can
now be retrieved automatically by using
< http://www.jewishgen.org/CURE/password.html >.

What CURE will do for JewishGen is enable us to better manage all
of our programs, assist in our planning process and provide the
information we need to better serve our constituents.

In addition to greater security for your contact information, your
benefits will include not having to worry about updating your
contact information individually in each program or mailing list,
but to update it in one place and one place only -- CURE. We expect
this "one stop update" to be a great convenience and believe it will
also result in far fewer "lost researchers" who forget to change
their e-mail address in each and every place it is listed on
JewishGen.

The new CURE logon screen will apply to the JewishGen Family Finder
(JGFF) within the next few days. For complete information about the
JGFF, see the "JGFF FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions about the JGFF"
at < http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgff-faq.html >.

In the coming weeks, this logon screen will also be implemented
across other JewishGen programs and databases and we will be posting
notices accordingly in each of our mailing lists.

We welcome your feedback and comments on the new system so that we
can continue to make this process easier!

The translation of a collection of birth records >from Serock have revealed
that the documents record the births of children of two different couples

records were written sequentially on two dates in 1875 and 1878. All the
records >from the 1875 group appear to have been signed by the same person,

New Procedures to Search the JGFF #poland

Susan E. King <susan.king@...>
 

Within the next few days, you will notice a change when you visit the
JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF). We are now implementing a registration
screen similar to that which has been in use for searching the Family
Tree of the Jewish People (FTJP) for the last few weeks.

This change is part of a major project which has been under development
for nearly a year called "CURE" -- the Central User Registration
Environment. The intent is to cure many of the ongoing challenges
JewishGen has faced due to the phenemonal growth we continue to
experience. These challenges include forgotten passwords, lost
researchers, and duplicate registrations. Most critical is the
increasing need for tightened security which will result in greater
protection for the data you provide.

CURE will integrate all the separate registration processes for the
JGFF, the FTJP, all Lyris Mailing Lists, ViewMate, ShtetlSchleppers,
JewishGen-erosity, the JewishGen Mall, the Guest Book, and the
interactive databases. CURE will also serve to integrate the systems
used for JewishGen's administrative functions. Over the coming months,
all of these interfaces will be replaced with a single central logon and
registration point -- CURE.

Here's how it works. When accessing the JGFF to perform a search, you
will now be asked to logon using either your e-mail address or your
JewishGen ID Number (JGID, formerly called the "JGFF Researcher Code"),
and your Password. If you have forgotten either, they can now be
retrieved automatically by using <
http://www.jewishgen.org/CURE/password.html >.

What CURE will do for JewishGen is enable us to better manage all of our
programs, assist in our planning process and provide the information we
need to better serve our constituents.

In addition to greater security for your contact information, your
benefits will include not having to worry about updating your contact
information individually in each program or mailing list, but to update
it in one place and one place only -- CURE. We expect this "one stop
update" to be a great convenience and believe it will also result in far
fewer "lost researchers" who forget to change their e-mail address in
each and every place it is listed on JewishGen.

The new CURE logon screen will apply to the JewishGen Family
Finder(JGFF) within the next few days. For complete information about
the JGFF, see the "JGFF FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions about the JGFF"
at < http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgff-faq.html >.

In the coming weeks, this logon screen will also be implemented across

Mordechai:

I do not have any specific information, but I would like to
direct you and others to two very good sources for research of
ancestors >from BIALYGen area towns and their organizations in New
York.

The JGS of New York City [http://www.jgsny.org/] has two
databases of value:

1. 10,200 Burial Societies In The New York Metro Area, a database
which is searchable by town name or keyword. I searched this
database for Tykocin burial societies, went to Old Montefiore and
walked the plot. Found an interesting name (same as my great
great grandfather) and was able to find an entire branch of my
family living in Long Island, Florida, and Israel.

2. New York Landsmanshaftn and Other Jewish Organizations, a
database of lists of Landmanschaften >from various sources. Check
out American Jewish Year Book 1907-1908, New York City
Congregations and Works Progress Administration (WPA) Yiddish
Writer's Group Study (1938) for "Congregation Mogen David Anshei
Choroszcz." Maybe these references can give you some direction.

I have heard that the State Insurance department may have
information about organizations like burial societies that become
