LDS scans of PSA records again viewable in Family History Centers #poland

Nicole Heymans
 

Following a recent spot check on FamilySearch, I noticed the "camera
and key" icon has reappeared for a number of LDS films of vital
records held in the Polish State Archives. This icon means the scans
can again be viewed in LDS Family History Centers and Affiliated
libraries; since last November, these films were viewable only in Salt
Lake City or in a few libraries who happened to have kept the film
rolls.

I did not check availability systematically, and only for a few
communities in Posen Province; all checks were positive. I strongly
suggest checking your favourite film's status before setting off for
your nearest FHC.

JewishGen's NY Genealogy Course starts June 14 #hungary

bounce-3693325-772961@...
 

So many of our immigrant ancestors lived in New York City -- they
started on the Lower East Side and upgraded to the Bronx and Brooklyn;
their children moved to Queens, Westchester, Long Island and New
Jersey.

We have census reports >from Ancestry and vital records from
ItalianGen, but this class will focus on the more esoteric documents
our ancestors generated, including probate, landsmanshaften, voter
registration, newspapers, and court case records.

This is an intermediate level genealogy course with eight text lessons
you can download; there are no specific times for the course as
students are international. Students will select a branch to research
and receive daily advice and suggestions >from the instructor through a
24/7 Forum, in a query and answer format. Students must feel
comfortable browsing the web and downloading files, have 8-10 hours
available each week, and should select one NYC family where census and
vital records are already documented.

Tuition is $150; registration is open at:
https://www.jewishgen.org/education/description.asp?course=40135

For questions, please email the instructor: Phyllis Kramer,
JewishGen's VP of Education, born and bred in NYC; she will lead you
through it.
