[UK] Archives Hub #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

For those researching the United Kingdom, this is for you! The National
Genealogical Society (NGS) "UpFront with NGS" posted about a centralized
resource for all UK archives called the Archives Hub
http://archiveshub.ac.uk/ .

The Archives Hub allows the researcher to search archives across 220
institutions across the UK. There is a search box where you place a word or
phrase. There is also a drop down box for titles and subjects or you can
simply browse. To start your search go to:
http://archiveshub.ac.uk/search.html

The actual documents are not contained in the Archives Hub- instead a brief
description of any archival material for the searched term will appear, and
it will advise as to which archive has the material, a brief summary of the
material and access to the material.

Archives Hub is funded by Jisc (Historically, JISC stood for Joint
Information Systems Committee but over the last decade are now known as
Jisc.) and is based at The University of Manchester.

Hartnig family researching Barney Slachter #general

jackie davis <jdavis318@...>
 

I just discovered on Ancestry's free, this weekend, New England databases
that there is a Hartnig family tree and that someone is researching the
name of Barney Slachter >from Bridgeport, Connecticut.

If a member of the Hartnig family is a member of JewishGen, or if anyone
knows how I can get in touch with this family, I would love to know. Barney
was my maternal grandmother's stepbrother (same mother, different fathers),
and I was named after his brother.

Re: Philadelphia Naturalization Records #general

Barry S. Finkel
 

From: Julia Lombardo<julialombardo@optimum.net>
I was wondering if anyone has experience searching for Naturalization
Records in Philadelphia.
snip...

I am not familiar with Philadelphia, but I am familiar with Chicago.
First, I never trust the immigration date in a census record.
It may be correct, but I believe that the indices (if any) have
the naturalization date, not the immigration date. And the immigration
data contained in the naturalization papers might not be accurate.
The immigration data for my ggf in his naturalization papers give the
month and year that he arrived at Ellis Island, but I have not found
his ship manifest. He might have arrived in the US via Canada.

In Chicago, there is an index to naturalizations. Up to a certain
year, naturalizations could take place in any court - local, county,
or federal. If federal, then the local National Archives branch would
have the records. If local or county, then the court archives would
have the records. In Chicago, the records would either be at the
Chicago NARA or the Cook County Archives. I assume a similar situation
occurs in the Philadelphia area.
