I like the new format - it is easy to read and very clear. Not sure why so many people are having problems. 


Family Genealogy #lithuania #poland


Hi ,
I have spent the best part of 15 years looking for my ancestral relatives as well as those murdered in the holocaust.,and indeed have been successful. I have located 3 out of 4 families dating back to appox 1830 of the Nochomovich family of Lithuania and the Weinmann Family of Rzeszow Poland. I have created 3 books one each family as well as 3 family trees. I would like to help anyone who might be seriously looking for their ancestors. All the information I compiled is now at Beit Hatfusot in the Tel Aviv University as well ad Yad Vashem and also the Washington Holocaust Memorial Museum. 
If you would like to correspond please email me marvin.charles@.... I reside in Melbourne Australia.

Re: Digest


I am getting several digests a day.  This new format is unbelievably visually overwhelming

Re: receiving multiple digests and duplicate emails

Hi Diane,
At the bottom  of each digest should be a link to "Your Subscription."  Click on that, and you'll get to a page with four choices how to receive postings:

Email Delivery

Individual Messages You will receive each message in an individual email.
Full Featured Digest Group up to 12 messages together as one email instead of being sent individually (rich formatting).
Daily Summary A daily summary, delivered in the morning, of the group's messages from the previous day.
Special Notices Only You will only receive special notices from the moderators.

You'll probably see the 2nd option is selected - change that to the first one.  (The image above is from my settings, ,and I already changed them.)

Re: Change


Not all live links open on my updated iPad!

And where did you get my iCloud address? I use only cabsha1@... only for more than 20 years. I had to change the “ From” to aol. Above. The first time I sent a reply the reply I got from you was undeliverable because you do not recognize my iCloud address. Of course, I never gave it to you. Why is my REPLY link connected to iCloud.

Please give a free class on how to navigate your improved site. I live in nyc and will be the first to sign up.
I hope this goes through!

I think the changes are an overall improvement. The design is cleaner and more modern. Having the responses to earlier posts listed immediately below the original posts in the digest layout offers a good give-and-take format that allows the recipients to follow the arguments. 
Not being limited to plain text is great and long overdue. Our Hebrew and Russian subscribers now have the option of writing in their own languages if they prefer. We now can insert images or other relevant attachments such as photos or documents. 

Change can be intimidating. We will get used to it over time. Meanwhile, I assume the managers will be fine-tuning the system in response to criticisms and suggestions.

The you for the link and for your hard work on it. We could use one for the town of Smiela as well. 

Also what is the status of the Cherkassy Records Translation Project? 

With Best Regards.

Re: Discussion Group - Digest #1

Another option for receiving messages is the Full Featured Digest: 12 messages are grouped into one email which is easy to follow and reply to.

The email options are available under Subscription on the group's web version.

Re: New JewishGen platform

I would encourage those who are having difficulties to explore why before requesting that the entire system be scrapped.  The new digest works perfectly for me.  I get a list of all the messages, and the content is below. The format is much easier to read than the old plain text.  If the messages are not opening for you, it may be, as someone else suggested, a setting in your e-mail client that is causing the problem.

If you are reporting problems with the system, include the name of your e-mail client and the name of your operating system in your message.  For instance, write that you're using Outlook on Windows 10 or Roundcube on Mac OS and whether you are using a PC or a mobile device.  That provides useful information to the administrators. It is probably much more productive to send that information to support@... than to post it here.


Re: New JewishGen platform

Steven Zimmerman

I like the new format. It is much easier to skip to topics of interest and is easier to read.

I just don’t know why I am now getting so many digest emails in one day? How can I get it to go back to one digest a day?

Thank you



Is sit possible to receive one digest a day? I'm getting several and it's overwhelming.

Hi Genners

Thanks to all of you who answered my question about genealogy software for the Mac. I had one response not to use Roots Magic, and I read a blog about it. Roots Magic is 32 bit and won’t work because all software for the Mac has to be 64 bit now.

Five people recommended Reunion, and most have been using it for years. One recommended Family Tree Maker which I had years ago and didn’t like it. However I know that it is not at all the same program now as it was then.

I was using Reunion 11, I think, on my iPad and iMac but it is so out of date, it can’t even be upgraded. So I guess I’ll just go with the Reunion and buy a new version of it.

This discussion group is amazing, and so are genealogists. Everyone is so helpful.

Re: Question

Terese B. Deboo

I have still not received any SIG emails. The last GERSIG I received, for instance, was October 7. It is difficult to believe that this is because there have been no ERSIG emails.

Also, I, too, find the new main@... emails not to be user-friendly, espcially because the original text does not show up.

Thanks -

Why is this being developed? it is a repeat of the list sever and has no  discernible difference. why not fold the whole thing into the list? don't understand.

I'm also happy with the new version of the discussion group. I think it has a very clean interface.  I use Google Chrome. Great Job,  team!
