Subcarpathia URL Correction #hungary

Lara Diamond
 

All,

Apologies for an incorrect URL in yesterday's announcement of the
Subcarpathia records that are now searchable on JewishGen.

Your (very much appreciated) donations can be made here:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=50

They're critical to allowing us to obtain additional books for
transcription and eventual inclusion on JewishGen.

Thank you!

(UK) FamilySearch London Centre Microfilms to be Housed at Society of Genealogists #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

I recently posted about FamilySearch and the demise of their microfilms and
cessation of borrowing them >from Salt Lake City at some time in the future.
I also mentioned in the UK, that FamilySearch was in negotiations with The
National Archives and the Society of Genealogists as to where to house the
ones that had been temporarily placed at the National Archives. I promised
when more information was known to post that information to this discussion
list.

The Society of Genealogists (SOG) has announced that the London FamilySearch
Centre microfilm collection will be transferring to the SOG in Clerkenwell.
This is partnership between the SOG and FamilySearch and will enable the
microfilm collection to be available to family historians. The London
FamilySearch Centre will continue to provide its research support services
at the National Archives. The FamilySearch collection is about 57,000
microfilms.

The films will be available to view at the National Archives until 31 May
and expected to be available at SOG starting 26 June 2017.

The SOG is a membership organization. Based on what is on their website
regarding visitor fees, http://www.sog.org.uk/the-library/visitor-fees/ one
can safely assume for SOG non-members wanting to access the microfilms, will
be subject to the fees listed on the website. See the website
http://www.sog.org.uk/the-library for more information on how to get there
and Library catalogue.

Thank you to Dick Eastman and the Eastman Online Genealogy Newsletter for
posting the notice >from the SOG regarding the new home for the London Centre
microfilms.

JRI-Poland adds more Warszawa Data to the Database #poland

hadassahlipsius
 

Jewish Records Indexing-Poland recently added 3240 more Warszawa records to
the JRI-Poland database.

Updates were made to the Warszawa PSA records >from Fond 200, covering the
1864-1915 time period.

With these new additions, the JRI-Poland database now has over 175,000 vital
records for the city of Warszawa. We continue to work on adding
additional data, links and extracting more information on the data already
on line.

Good luck in your search!

Calling all transcribers and validators for Romanian records #romania

Barbara Hershey <barbara.hershey@...>
 

I am pleased to announce that we are ready for volunteers to get active
again after this transition period for the Rom-SIG. Welcome.

We are using a new system developed to index records. The system is
referred to as CSI (Crowd Sourced Indexing). I invite you to try it.
Once you register, you will be given one image to work on at a time. You
have 24 hours to complete that image before it is returned to give to
another volunteer. (I am working with the developers to extend that time
period since I believe people new to this may need longer to learn how to
do it.)

There is a project started for Iasi Death Records and this will be
expanded to include other marriage and birth records once we get some
feedback on how this is working for you. Records for Herta are already
part of CSI and you may work on those too.

FIRST STEP: Please be sure you have signed a volunteer agreement for the
Rom-Sig that is found on JewishGen.

<http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen/Agree/volunteer.asp>If you have questions or are unsure if you have an agreement submitted,
please write to me.

STEP TWO: Please visit the website <http;//csi.idogenealogy.com> and Sign
Up to use. In your registration you will be asked to Select your Group.
Please select the Rom-SIG.

Following are basic instructions for indexing a record. More complete
instructions are available on the CSI website under the About drop-down
menu.

* You will be shown one image to index. Please fill in all of the
appropriate fields as completely as possible.
* You may view one image before and one image after (if they exist) for
the purposes of better indexing, but do not index those images. If a
record exists across two pages, you should index records that begin on the
page you were given. You should only make an exception if you believe that
another indexer may not have noticed that the record began on their page
and continued on yours.
* When complete, use the Submit Transcriptions button at the top of the
page to save your work.
* Don't worry about leaving blank lines in the transcription, even if they
are in the middle of the list. A button to add additional lines, as
needed, is at the bottom.
* Partial indexing is not available. Please complete the entire image or
release the image to allow someone else to index it.
* Do not change languages on the indexing page. The image will not reload.
* If you can't read something, use a question mark (?). (You may also add
comments in that comments field and I will see those.)
* Have fun and know that you are helping others to do their genealogy
research by participating in any indexing project. Thank you for using CSI.

Many, MANY thanks to Banai Lynn Feldstein and Daniel Horowitz for
collaborating to develop this website and allowing our group to be one of
the pioneers using the system.

There are some tools available to help with transcriptions on
<http://www.jewishgen.org/romsig/Links.html> and we hope to set up a
volunteer section on the website once a website designer is found. Please
write me if you have any suggestions for a volunteer for that role.

If you were a Validator for Romanian records in past years, please write
to me.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or comments. I value
your feedback.

Hi all

My name is Michael and I have a question about my great grand aunt
Fannie aka Feiga Reiter who was listed being born in Vescoyi. I did a search
online and it came up with nothing. Here is some background information.
She traveled with my great grandfather who was born in Solotwina, Galicia,
and the passenger list mentioned them living in Uscie-Zielone.

As always your help is always appreciated.

Ancestry or via Steve Morse's Ellis Island One Step -- Feige REITER, age 14,
arrived in New York in 1906 on the S.S. Baltic.
