Source citation examples for PSA/LDS Polish Records? #general

Yaacov Slizak <yslizak@...>
 

Dear Friends,

I wonder what would be an appropriate way to cite sources >from PSA or LDS
vital documents (Birth, Marriage, Death) in your genealogical reports.

Can somebody suggest citation examples? We should likely consider different
instances like (1) Database Entry but no actual document produced (2)
Document received >from the PSA or copy >from the LDS microfilm.

Thanks,

I have found in my 7 years of doing research that when I began there was
little on the web and now there is a great deal which certainly makes my
work easier using records, indexes and discussion groups online. But I also
found that while I don't have to go to the NYPL or NARA as often for
passenger manifests and census records, there are still many records that
are not online and only by going to archives can this material be retrieved.

I also found that when I found a record in an archive and/or online it led
me back online and/or to go again to the NYC archives and get more
information. Using each resource is fabulous in breaking down brick walls!

Nancy made her point in her post and I share her opinion on how spoiled we
all are, as I also spent a large part of the last years visiting archive
holdings in Europe and just came back >from one trip at the Swiss and Italian
border, I just wanted to add a reflexion on how exiting it is to open a box
of Archive that has never been opened since it was given by the
administration to be archived.
I do work only on pre and WWII documents and most of the people I look for
have been interned in various kinds of camps. I am part of a chain that put
the data online as many of you do, for others can stay home to check on what
is available or not on the web....

Dolginovo #belarus

Bill Yoffee <kidsbks@...>
 

My mother was born in Dolginovo (Dalhinif) in 1902 and her family emigrated
in 1907. At the time she was born, it appears that the town was in Vilna
Gubernia. Shortly thereafter, the boundary was relocated to incorporate the
town in Minsk Gubernia, which she always claimed as the area >from which she
came. Where would I most likely find their birth and family records?

JOWBR Update #belarus

Joyce Field
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce a major update to JOWBR, JewishGen's
Online Worldwide Burial Registry, a searchable database accessible at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/cemetery/, There are now 689,125
burial records in 1,525 cemeteries and cemetery sections online. The
cemetery section list can be viewed at
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/tree/CemList.htm.

JOWBR is totally dependent on donations of material >from individual
donors and other organizations who share data with us. Every one of
these donations is important to us, but I do want to point out a few
noteworthy efforts for this update:

-Bruno Segel, Rosanne Leeson, and others entered ~13,200 records >from
Botosani, Moldavia
-Terry Lasky has submitted over 16,000 records for Colorado cemeteries
-JGS of Toronto, Canada has added to this update 13 more cemeteries
and over 8,000 records, for a total of over 29,000 records, almost
all of which have been submitted by Carolynne Veffer on behalf of the
society
-Mathilde Tagger submitted data on six cemeteries in Egypt
-Jewish Cemetery Berg Altena in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles,
probably one of the oldest Jewish cemeteries in the "New World," has
been added, containing 1,217 burial records

Many more individuals and organizations have made important
contributions of data to JOWBR, too many for us to acknowledge here,
and we look forward to adding many tens of thousands records in every
quarterly update with your help. For information on how you can
submit records, see
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/Submit.htm and
http://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Cemetery/JOWBRinstructions.htm.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Nolan Altman,
JOWBR technical coordinator, at nta@pipeline.com, or me.

We are in need of Hebrew translators who can transcribe tombstone
transcriptions >from Hebrew to English. Id you can help, please
contact Nolan Altman.

The JOWBR database would not be possible without the efforts of Nolan
Altman, Warren Blatt, Michael Tobias, and JewishGen.

Dear Bill,
It is very interesting that your mother claimed to be >from the Minsk

the area in 1901 and my grandmother Bela nee Shulman who was born in
the area in 1904 always said the they were >from the Vilna Gubernia,

I created a site for Dolhinov/ Dolginovo, with many pictures and much
