Visit JewishGen's New Website #galicia

Nancy Siegel
 

JewishGen is pleased to announce our newly designed website at
www.JewishGen.org. We commissioned the creation of a new landing page
to serve as a launching point for the main components of the website. The
site is built on a modern, secure platform, which is beneficial for a number
of reasons, including:

*It has a more intuitive and user-friendly design,
*It is mobile-responsive, and
*It has a more familiar platform, which will make it easier for us to find
qualified consultants, contractors and volunteers to help us in the future.

This is not the final plan. It's a stop-gap redesign that addresses some
of the shortcomings of our website by creating a visually appealing,
mobile-friendly, and easy to navigate homepage that researchers can
utilize to find key components on the JewishGen site. While we attracted
approximately one million unique visitors to the JewishGen site last year,
only a small portion of this group actually registered or became regular
users. We anticipate that an enhanced website will improve these results.

Specifically, we hope the new landing page will help guide researchers to:

*Search the online collection
*Locate ancestral communities
*Explore life in their ancestral communities
*Join our discussion groups
*Volunteer, and
*Donate.

Over the next two months, we will begin crafting a proper technology
strategy, which will include our website and databases. In the meantime,
however, this new landing page will immediately help researchers, while
also demonstrating JewishGen's strategic focus.

Thank you to everyone on our staff and volunteer leadership team for
their suggestions and contributions to making this happen. Special thanks
to Scott Seidenstock, Gary Sandler, and Warren Blatt.

Please enjoy the site and visit www.JewishGen.org now. Feedback and
suggestions will be most welcome!

If we limit language to only English, that in my opinion is a big mistake.  We loose many people from Latin America, Easter Europe.

I think that better for us, English speakers to translate from Spanish or Russian, etc.

I understand Yefim, but by writing in a language other than English it might limit those who can offer help. Whenever I suggest someone write to JG I say, write in short sentences and people aren't put off by mistakes.  Even if you use a translator your best translations are when the sentences are short and not complex and long.

Searching LDS records #hungary

Hello,

I believe I have found a record on an LDS film that might be of
interest to me. I think I have located the right film on
FamilySearch.org. My question is, how do I find the exact record among
the 485 photos in there? Is there a clue or should I just search one
by one?

Thank you,
