Better searches (no more 3-character requirement) using Steve Morse's One Step #belarus

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

GOOD NEWS!!! -- We can now search on a popular commercial genealogy
website without having to put in three characters for the name. Up until now, if you entered a
partial first name or a partial last name, you had to enter at least
three characters. But Steve Morse has written some new code that gets
around this limitation by searching on all combinations of the letters
that we left out.

For example, suppose you want to search for all people with first
initial J and last name Smith. Steve's software will automatically
search for all Smiths with first names starting with Jaa, then Jab, then

Jac, etc. up to Jzz. It might take as much as 5 minutes to get all the
results, but it's automatic -- you submit one search and Steve does 676
searches for you. And if you search for all Smiths with first name
starting with Ja, Steve can do that faster (less than ten seconds)
because he only has to do 26 searches in that case.

To use this feature, go to Steve's website at http://stevemorse.org and
select any of his search forms that use this site (e.g., any of his
passenger search forms other than Ellis Island, and his census
search-by-name form for any census year). Then enter less than three
characters for either the first or last name, and Steve's new software
will kick in, doing repeated searches on your behalf.

If you have any problems with it or questions about it or even comments
about it, please write to Steve directly rather than asking me.
Steve's address is at the top of his website.

Re: Theodore Herzl's family #general

AK <alan.kolnik@...>
 

Thanks for this information, Nick, and to all those who replied
individually.

I suspect now that if Fanny Herzl was a relative, she must have been
contemporaneous with his father. We have been able to take a guess at the
time frame - probably born about 1830.

No, he had a sister Paulina according to this website

Does anyone know if this Minnie Florence FRANKLIN (who married Sir

Is there a website for the FRANKLIN and/or other "Cousinhood" families?

Thanks for everyone's help.

Naming a newborn after a sibling who died earlier #poland

Abuwasta Abuwasta
 

I am searching my maternal family KOENIGSBUCH from
Brzesko, Galicia and am making a steady progress.

Recently I came twice across a phenomenon of a
child(male) which died very early, within a year from
birth, and then the next child which was born was
given the same name.

I would like to hear how common such custom was,if at
all.

Thanks.

May I thank all those very kind people who have helped me by offering
translation, partial and total, and other assistance in connection with
my posting. I have been overwhelmed and now know that this document
relates to my great-grandparents.

This assistance, through JRI-Poland, is the most wonderful aid to
resarchers and I cannot praise it, or the people who respond to it,
too highly. Thank you all!

Best wishes

Re: Lodz Books of Residents #lodz #poland

Nicki Chodnoff - On The Go Publishing <nicki@...>
 

Hello Everyone

Maybe indexing all the Lodz Books of Residents with its 180 volumes, 1440
households and perhaps 200,000 entries is too daunting a task.

However, maybe LARG can set aside an online area for a database. There,
people who already researched the Lodz Book of Residents could donate their
information, and as other people obtain information in the future, they too
can post their information so it can be shared with all Lodz researchers.

A standardized form should be developed for the compiled information so it
is easily searched and presented online. As a first thought, there can be an
area where a copy of the original page >from the Book of Residents can be
seen along and a part 2 with a place for the translation if available.

Indexing all the Lodz Books of Residents in Lodz would be a fantastic
project, but it is an enormous enormous task.

I have just talked to Stanley Diamond about it. He estimates that there
are
180 volumes, 1440 households, and perhaps 200,000 entries. It could only
be
done by professional archivists in Poland and would cost between $30,000
and
$50,000.
