Many many thanks to all of you who helped me with my Viewmate request.

I am still working with my cousin. He is the person who told me our
Isaac LOEB died on that date and is buried in that cemetery. But I am
thinking that someone must have made that assumption and the person
buried there is not *** our *** Isaac LOEB.

Thanks so much!!!

International Red Cross WWI Prisoner- Of-War Records #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has put World War 1
prisoner-of-war records on line. However, the records are fairly limited. If
you go to this document:
http://grandeguerre.icrc.org/Content/help/Introduction_en.pdf
you can learn more about the 400,000 pages of documents, lists of prisoners,
names and records of capture, records of transfers between camps and deaths
in detention. The ICRC made a card for each of the listed names. The cards
were then classified by the detainees military or civilian status and filed
in 29 different card indexes. The IRC archives holds 5 million index cards
relating to 2 million prisoners, primarily >from the Western Romanian and
Serbian fronts. To search the index for those see drop down box by
nationality go to: http://grandeguerre.icrc.org/en/File/Search

Records relating to the Russian Front are in the archives of the Danish
Red Cross in Copenhagen as Denmark was neutral during World War 1. The
website http://www.rodekors.dk/ does not appear to have a link for
archives or for WW1 Prisoners.

The British Imperial War Museum has put 1000 film clips >from WW 1 on line
which may be accessed by going to this site:

(UK) Census for 2021 To Go Forth But Future Ones Still In Question #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Previously reported on this announcement list [April 5 and April 20 -
accessible via the JewishGen Discussion Group Archives - MODERATOR] is
the ongoing discussion in the United Kingdom regarding the continuation
of the decennial census for England and Wales. On July 18, The Rt. Hon
Francis Maude MP Minister for the Cabinet Office, Paymaster General
wrote to the UK Statistics Authority that they are agreeing with the
recommendation for a predominantly online census in 2021 supplemented by
further use of administrative and survey data, however, the support for
this approach is only for 2021 census and not future censuses. Mr. Maude
MP commented that their ambition is that censuses after 2021 will be
conducted using other sources of data and providing more timely
statistical information. However, any final decision on moving to the use
only of administrative data beyond 2021 will be dependent on the dual
running sufficiently validating the perceived feasibility of that
approach. Mr. Maude wrote to Members of Parliament on this and the
report may be accessed at:
http://tinyurl.com/lq5wvqt
Original url:
http://www.publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201415/cmselect/cmpubadm/601/601.pdf

The chairman of the UK Statistics Authority, Sir Andrew Dilnot CBE, replied
on July 21 that they agreed the benefits of greater sharing of
administrative data within Government are substantial.

The newly named Administrative Data Research Network was cited as a resource
for future plans.

Both Mr. Maude's letter and Sir Andrew Dilnot's letters may be accessed in
links at:
http://ukdataservice.ac.uk/news-and-events/newsitem/?id=3858

Last year, when the proposal to "scrap" the census as it has been known for
the past 200 years, there was concern raised by family historians and the
business community. For more information see the Financial Times article

Re: Donating Family Books to Libraries, Archives #general

Matt Friedman
 

The suggestions regarding what to do with genealogical data have been
excellent. In particular the suggestion to donate to more than one
archive is a good one.  We don't know where future researchers will live.  
Providing the availability of materials to several locations will provide
greater physical access as not every document held by an archive is
available on-line.  To build on the idea I suggest creating a catalogue
of your main collection and making that widely available.  Finally,
I strongly endorse the American Jewish Archives.  I worked there when I
was a student at the Hebrew Union College and can attest to the quality
of the collection and professionalism of the staff.

Re: Illegal to Bury Jews in Pittsburgh Proper? #general

Subject: Illegal to Bury Jews in Pittsburgh Proper?
From: Varda Meyers Epstein <yknowus@gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 6 Aug 2014 20:15:50 -0400

A family member told me it was once illegal for Jews to be buried in
Pittsburgh and that this is currently a huge issue among Pittsburgh
genealogists.
________________________________________

I have studied Pittsburgh Jewish genealogy for over a dozen years and
personally inventoried dozens of Pittsburgh Jewish cemeteries for
JOWBR input and never heard or read anything that would support
either part of this statement.

The early Pittsburgh Jewish synagogues date >from the 1860s and were
located near the downtown commercial area at the intersection of the
three rivers which were lined with steel mills and other large
manufacturing plants. It was not affordable or appropriate for
cemeteries (major floods in 1889 and 1936). The rest of Allegheny
county is over 12 times the size of Pittsburgh and generally less than
10 miles away. This area had many more affordable and appropriate land
for cemeteries.
