new Social Security index on Ancestry #general

Renee Steinig
 

A new index to Social Security records was just added to Ancestry:

U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007

This database includes "information filed with the Social Security
Administration through the application or claims process." It covers
fewer people than the Social Security Death Index but usually provides
more information about those who are listed -- notably birth place and
parents' names. Many of the records appear to be the result of claims
or corrections processed well after the original SS-5 (application for
a Social Security number) was filed.

Read more about the database (including what's not in it and why) and
search it at http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=60901 .

Searching for Steinigs, I found that 12 of the 34 Steinigs in the SSDI
are also in this new database. But in addition, the Applications and
Claims Index includes 10 Steinigs who are not in the SSDI under that
surname. Most of them are women whose maiden names were Steinig or
whose surnames had changed to/>from Steinig because of a second
marriage. In addition, three relatives are listed who died in the
1950s or 1960s and are not in the SSDI at all. Searching by mother's
surname produced even more listings of interest.

According to Ancestry, "Unless the deceased would be at least 75 years
old today, we do not publish the parents' names in these records." On
the other hand, the Social Security Administration's Freedom of
Information department redacts parents' names >from records unless the
decedent would be 100 years old or proof of parents' deaths is
provided.
(See https://secure.ssa.gov/apps9/eFOIA-FEWeb/internet/main.jsp .)
So here's a possible opportunity to learn the parents' names that
were covered with black ink on the SS-5 you ordered!

Help with family apartment in Radom #general

Susan <susan.lieberman@...>
 

I am helping a friend do research in Poland.

She recently visited Radom and saw that the apartment building
where her mother lived pre WWII was boarded up. She'd like
information on the building and ideas about preserving the site
which is at Rynek 16. Does anyone have suggestions about how to
go about this and how to find more information about the building?

Thank you,

Susan Viuker Lieberman
