Eli - Coincidentally, I've just read an article in today's Sun Sentinel, entitled
History Mystery - written by Staff Correspondent Nick Bogert, who is also a
reporter for WTVJ-Ch 6 in Miami-Dade County, Florida.
It is the very article you mention - covering the story of the brother and sister
who were reunited after 15 years.
However, included in the background of the story is information about "the Florida
Moving Image Archive, where people have been bringing their own family movies,
which are preserved and made available to scholars, researchers and filmmakers".

In a recent message in the Discussion Group a JewishGenner asked the question
about what to do with family files, etc. after she was gone. The article is a
typical example of solving her quandary!

Steve Davidson, a friend and fellow film archivist (and Director of the Florida
Moving Image Archive in Miami), has a very interesting story about a Jewish
family in Southern Florida reunited by a stranger's discovery of a trove of
family items, including home movies, in their garage. *snip*

Re: Zivilstandsregister at the Mormon Library - RESEARCH NOTE #germany

Ernest Kallmann <kallmann.ernest@...>
 

The "film notes" in the FHL catalog show that the main part of the 7
reels is marriage records (Eheprotokolle). Births are noted only for two
periods of two years each. There are also "miscellaneous" (Verschiedene)
records.

The mention Zivilstandsregister seems to point at records made by a
civil (i.e. non-religious) authority. On the right bank of the Rhine,
this could only be the local nobleman owning Meerholz, if any. Usually
the word Zivilstand is limited to the left Rhine bank, where the French
occupation and temporary annexation >from 1798 to 1815 introduced civil
vital event recording. >from 1812 or so on, civil recording of the Jews
on the right bank was performed by he local Christian priest on special
registers, usually identified by "Jewish records" in the catalog, but
not always spotted by the filming squad.

My suggestion : try with one reel, according to the time frame you are
interested in.

[jri-pl] JRI-Poland Introduces Express Service for Ordering Records #scandinavia

Elsebeth Paikin
 

This might also be of interest to some Scandinavia Genners:

Some researchers ordering records using the Shopping Basket Order
System http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/neworder.htm may be willing
to pay a premium for fast service. For these researchers, Jewish
Records Indexing - Poland and the Polish State Archives (PSA)
have launched an Express Service for ordering records using the
JRI-Poland Shopping Basket order system. This Service is
currently available >from three Archive branches participating in
a Pilot Project - Bialystok, Lomza, and Lublin.

Express Service enables researchers who need records quickly
(within a week) to acquire them at a premium price. Only records
that are currently available through the JRI-Poland Shopping
Basket order system can be ordered using Express Service.

Express Service orders must be placed by FAX with payment only by
Credit Card (VISA and MasterCard). The Archives will scan the
records and the images will be sent to researchers via email.

For more information about this Service and the ordering
procedure, please access the JRI-Poland webpage at
http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/express.htm.

All questions about Express Service should be directed to the
JRI-Poland Order Processing Center at
orderqueries@jri-poland.org.

A correction to the previous message:

Yesterday, I made an announcement about the new Express ordering
service and said this service applied to three Polish State
Archives (PSA) branches. Although JRI-Poland and PSA have every
intention of including Lomza in this Pilot program, I was
premature in announcing their inclusion.

At the current time only Bialystok and Lublin are included in the
Pilot program. Lomza will be added at a later date and this will
be announced on this forum.

Re: searching family from Nesvizh #belarus

Millie Schlapnik asks about strategies for connecting with families....,

In my experience, the single most successful strategy is to use the
JewishGen Family Finder ! List all the names you are researching and also
search on TOWN to connect with others who are searching families >from
Nesvizh. They may not have entered every name of interest, but may find a
name in their personal lists that have a connection to one of yours.

There is no limit on the number of names you may enter in the JGFF, so
enter them all!
