JSTOR Offers JPASS Access For Individuals To 1500 Academic Journals--Pay Site #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

JSTOR is a shared digital library created in 1995 to help university and
college libraries to free space on their shelves, save costs, and provide
greater levels of access to more content. It's a not-for-profit, founded to
help academic libraries and publishers. Previously, one had to be associated
with a University or other institution which held a subscription to gain
access JSTOR has announced JPASS - monthly & annual individual access plans
for independent researchers, recent graduates, professionals, and lifelong
learners. JPASS gives the individual personal access to a library of more
than 1,500 academic journals on JSTOR. The subscription details can be found
http://jpass.jstor.org/#j_what_is_jpass_-plans .
If your local library does not have access for JSTOR this may be something
of interest. To glance at their collection go to:
http://jpass.jstor.org/#j_what_is_jpass_-plans and click on "collection".
While most of the journals are >from the 20th century they have some that go
back to the 18th century and >from a number of f countries. I rarely post
about subscription services that do not have a free period- JPASS does not,
but since it is an unusual access to over 1500 journals am breaking "my own
rule".

ViewMate Translation Request--German #general

Deborah Dworski
 

I have posted to ViewMate a handwritten document >from the town of Golub Dobrzyn,
Poland with the hope someone can translate the German script. The document
pertains to the family of a Holocaust-survivor friend who is trying to trace his
family's history in the town. Initially, I thought the record to be written in
Russian, but someone who reads Cyrillic has corrected my error.

Here is a direct link:
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=28919

Please reply privately or via ViewMate.

Sincerely,

Searching for SCHWED connections #general

prayerboy@juno.com <prayerboy@...>
 

I am following some clues to connect to possible relatives of my SCHWED heritage.
If any of these names are familiar to you, would you please contact me directly.
All are connected to New York City.

Mayer Schwed, born around 1838, married to Mary They had a son Phillip, b. 1864,
d. 11/16/23, married to Martha or Bertha They had a son Lawrence, b. 22 Mar 1891,
d. 7/66, married to Milly They had two sons, Langdon and Warren, both possibly
served in WWII...and that is where my search grows cold.

If I have my facts straight, my ggf Joseph Schwed was somehow connected to Mayer,
according to his naturalization petition card.

Thank you,

Todd Frederick

Re: New York Public Library - research advice #general

Erika Herzog
 

As someone who lives in New York I have found this thread truly amazing and very
helpful. I wonder if this great advice is compiled anywhere as a FAQ?

And as a fledgling librarian, I want to emphasize that it is really prudent and
important to contact the librarians ahead of time so that you can maximize your
research time at the library. Especially coming >from out of time specifically to do
research on these areas, I think that pre-visit contact will reduce a lot of
frustrations.

Great thread!

Family Missing from 1911 Census #general

Moragaf@...
 

Hello

Wonder if anyone can give me any hints or tips where I go now.

My great grandfather was a Joseph Goldman. My Grandmother was born in
Northumberland, Newcastle upon Tyne in January 1909. Registered as Fanny Cameron
Goldman (although she was known as Frances and that name is on her marriage
certificate). He was a commercial traveller. I have searched the entire UK census
for 1911 and the whole family seems to have vanished. I know nothing else about
him other than his wife was Dolina and he was deceased by the time my grandmother
married in 1930.

Many thanks
