Re: Records from Birlad #romania

Lucian Turcescu <lucian_turcescu@...>
 

I would add to what Sorin wrote that those archives contain vital records
older than 100 years. The ones that are less than 100 years old are still
preserved at the mayor's office (primarie). In my experience with archives,
I also discovered that, unfortunately, the transfer of documents >from the
mayor's office to the national archives (based in the county capital) is
not made promptly. So, the mayor's office may still hold vital records that
are, say, 103 years old because they were not yet transferred.

Good luck

Cheers,
Lucian

Scans of all Lodz Registration Cards now online #general

Stanley Diamond
 

Dear Researchers,

Just a last week I posted an update on the Lodz Registration Cards Extraction
Project and indicated that we anticipate additional scans >from the Polish State
Archives will be online in the near future.

I am delighted to advise that scans for cards with all letters of the alphabet
are now live and linked >from the JRI-Poland Lodz Registration Cards webpage at:
www.jri-poland.org/psa/lodz-registration-card-scans.htm

The cards contain name of head of household and his/her occupation,
religion, birthplace and birth date and where they lived before. They also
include name of the spouse and where born, and names of children and
their birthplace and birth date. There is also an address where they live,
and changes of address are also recorded.

The JRI-Poland Lodz Registration Cards Extraction team has already
reviewed more than 21,000 scans and extracted the names, birth dates
and birth cities of nearly 20,000 Jewish residents recorded in Lodz
from 1916-1921. The resulting data will provide researchers and their
families with insight into the lives and movement of our people during
this time frame and will serve as valuable research and history of the
Polish Jews in Lodz.

While we expect to upload the first group of 20,000 names by end of
this year, with the thousands of additional scans now available, our
challenge has been magnified. We need many more volunteers to
help us expedite the project to extract the records and have them
included in our search system. Please contact Margalit Ir at
margalit.a.ir@gmail.com to become part of this dynamic team.

Best wishes for a year of health and many research successes.

(Scotland) Scotlands People New Website Launched #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Scotlands People is the official website of the Scottish Government for
searching government records and archives. It was created >from the merger of
the General Register Office of Scotland and the National Archives of
Scotland in 2011.

This week Scotlands People launched its new revamped website. For the first
time we can research the index to records, including statutory records of
births, deaths and marriages free of charge. Charges will only be made when
the records are viewed or downloaded. The new website also permits access
across digital devices and an enhanced search function.

Some new features include the choice between a quick search for people
across all records indexed by personal name, or advanced search for specific
types of records.
To read more about the new web site go to:
https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/article/welcome-new-scotlandspeople-website

If you are a registered user, you will need to login in with your password
and you will be prompted to set a user name and password email address and
password. If you have not registered previously you need to login in. The
site has videos on how to login, register, checking your account and about
the website. To access the videos go to:
www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/exploring-new-site

Note: In accordance with National Records of Scotland policy, images of
statutory birth records less than 100 years old, marriages less than 75
years old, deaths less than 50 years old and of divorces, civil partnerships
and dissolutions of a civil partnership are not available to view online.

Civil registration was introduced in Scotland 1 January 1855 replacing the
Church of Scotland system. As of that date it was compulsory to register
births, marriages and deaths and standardization of format was required.

Scotlands People is a pay-per -view site except for those areas mentioned
above that are free. The free search of indexes cover birth, death and
marriage registers, census returns, church registers, valuation rolls and
legal records (like wills and testaments and coats of arms). To read about
the cost of credits and how they are batched see:
https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/content/our-charges

Scotlands People is a partnership between the National Records of Scotland
and the Court of the Lord Lyon. The Court of Lord Lyon is the official
heraldry office for Scotland.

Lithuanian Business Records #lithuania

My great-grandfather, who was called Israel ROSENBLOOM in Baltimore,
was a blacksmith, probably in Kretinga or Plunge, in the late 1800s;
Rosenbloom was NOT his surname in Lithuania. I am looking for business
records or other records showing occupations in Kovno in hopes of
finding his Lithuanian surname.

Please contact me if:
(1) you know of any such records showing names and occupations in Kovno.
(2) you have information about the Lithuanian origins of the family
of Israel Rosenbloom (1855-1933) or his brother Solomon Rosenbloom
(1869-1942) who resided in Baltimore in the United States.

Looking for information about death in Athens #general

Karen Catania
 

Hello!
I am looking for a death confirmation/date on Maurice ISSACHAR - He was born 1921
in Chios Greece to Victoria & Abraham Issachar. He was an Attorney and donated
money several times to the jewish museum in Greece, which contains photographs of
his parents and siblings, and only a baby photograph of himself. He was an attorney
in Athens. It has been said that he was alive for sure in 1995 and the thought is
that he passed away maybe 4 years ago. There maybe newspaper articles with
photographs, but since I only speak English, I am not sure how to navigate around
that. Any information is greatly appreciated.
Thank you!
