(UK) General Register Office Extends Birth and Death Records PDF Trial #unitedkingdom

Jan Meisels Allen
 

In 2017 the United Kingdom's General Register Office (GRO) held a
three phase pilot on accessing birth and death records by pdf. The GRO
extended the final phase which was supposed to run for three months starting
October 12, 2017. However in the current issue of Who Do You Think You Are?
Magazine, they write the GRO confirmed to them that the latest pilot
delivering PDF copies of birth and death records has been successful and
they will be extending the pilot. They were also advised that "further
changes" would be communicated in due course". During the 3-month pilot
they had over 79,800 PDF applications and processed providing a less
expensive and quicker alternative to ordering print copies. See:

The GRO has yet to establish a permanent PDF scheme and it may take
legislative action by Parliament to make it permanent.

A PDF is not a certificate as they do not have the official crest and
signature of issuing authority as would a regular certificate. A PDF
will have no "evidential" value, and therefore a paper certified copy
[certificate] is required for official purposes, e.g. if applying for a
passport, driving license, or where required to give notice of marriage.

The extended pilot covers PDF copies of those historical digitized civil
registration records held by GRO (i.e. birth entries >from 1837 - 1916
and death entries >from 1837 - 1957). Modern records are not covered during
the extended pilot. A GRO index reference is required to be provided with
the application. You can find the GRO index references by logging on to the
GRO online ordering service and accessing the GRO online indexes. A PDF will
cost £6.00 each.

For information on the extended pilot please see the questions and
answers on their website. You first have to register (it's free) to access the
rest of the website:
https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/Login.asp
That will then open the window of "what would you like to do?" On the
right there is a menu of items. Click on the "About the PDF Pilot." That
will take you to the "Extended PDF Pilot: About the Pilot.

ArkivDigital Free Access January 20-21, 2018 #scandinavia

Jan Meisels Allen
 

ArkivDigital is offering free access All-in-one this weekend-Saturday,
January 20 and Sunday, January 21-European time. New users and users with
Base subscription get access to everything in their database, All-in-one
during the weekend. Their collections include religious records, estate
inventories, tax registers, military rolls, spy documents, passenger ship
manifests, Swedish American church books in Kansas, Minnesota and Nebraska,
aerial photos and many other historical documents. (You can read more about
their recent addition of tax registers in their blog-in English-- at:
http://blog.arkivdigital.net/). Additionally there are many name searchable
indexes that can make it easier for you to find your Swedish ancestors.

In order to search their indexes you need to install their new software
ArkivDigital2.0-web version. You must also register with them- no credit
card information is required, If you registered previously with ArkivDIgital
it is not necessary to reregister.
To register , download the software and start the program go to:
https://www.arkivdigital.net/products/adonline/try-for-free

After you have registered click on "start the program" -the blue button".
You can select English or Swedish as the language of choice in the upper
right hand corner. They recommend Chrome as your browser for the best
functionality. You will have to insert your email address and password
again. I was able to review a register in "demo" mode only since I tried
this before the start of the free time period. The records are crisp, and I
could enlarge the graphic.

If you think you might not have ancestors >from Sweden, there have been Jews
in Sweden since the early 1700's. albeit a small population. Sweden opened
its doors to Jews during WWII and again in 1956 when Jews were fleeing
Hungary and then again when fleeing Communists in 1968. According to the
Jewish Virtual Library the Jewish population increased tremendously between
1850 and 1920 due to immigration >from Russia and Poland. The population
reached nearly 6,500 in 1920. Small groups of German, Austrian, and Czech
Jews were allowed to immigrate to Sweden during the 1930's. Once the Nazi
brutalities were known Sweden opened its doors to Jews. In 1942, Sweden
allowed the immigration of 900 Norwegian Jews. In October 1943, Sweden gave
asylum to more than 8,000 Danish Jews, the whole Danish Jewish community,
which came to Sweden via small fishing boats. The Jewish population doubled
between 1945-1970.

Remember to wait for the free access time to begin on January 20-21-European
time.

Puzzling discrepancy in two sisters' birth records -- Russian #general

Mr Dmitry Nikelshpur
 

Hi,

I had posted images of two birth records, written in Russian, >from
late 19th century in Siedlce, Poland, at
https://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM63694

The first is Pesia GOLDVERT, and the second is Frimet GOLDVERT. I am
convinced these are my great-grandfather's, Zalman GOLDVERT's, sisters.

Recently I realized that the mother's, Asna Tauba's, maiden name in
both records is different -- in the first record, the maiden name looks
like LEIBMAN, while in the second record it looks like GOLDMAN.

I will be grateful for ideas / advice as to how to go about trying to
resolve this discrepancy? Were there also Hebrew copies of birth records
in Siedlce in late 19th century (I know that there were Russian and
Hebrew copies of records in some other parts of Europe).

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

Thank you, and Kind Regards,
Dmitry Nikelshpur

Hello, Jewishgenners. I received a letter >from the archive in the town of
Dabrowa Byalistocka, which is in Poland on the border with Belarus. I was
looking for records for my other ancestral family of OLYAN.
They have informed me that they do not have any metric/vital records for
people of that town and don't know where they would be........So since
records are deemed "destroyed" >from WW2, is there still a possibility that
they exist elsewhere, i.e. Grodno, or Vilnius or even Warsaw?? Any thoughts
on this strange situation?

Meaning of "Servant" in 18th and 19th Century Hungarian Censuses #general

Hilary Osofsky
 

There are two censuses of Hunszdorf (now Huncovce, Slovakia) that contain
unusual references to servitude with respect to my ancestor/s, Marcus
Wolf/f, for which I've been unable to obtain a meaningful explanation --
although perhaps the translation is at the bottom of this.

The census of 1771 describes Marcus Wolff as being "in Hungary since 1729;
servant of the Jewish community."

And according to the census of 1838, Marcus Wolf was "extremely poor,
occupation as a servant to endure."

I would appreciate hearing >from anyone who has any insight into these
comments.

Help Identify a photograph #general

Mr Dmitry Nikelshpur
 

Hi,

I had posted images of front and back of a fairly old photograph at
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM63700

Can someone please help me date and, if feasible, identify this photograph?

Written on the back of the photograph, in Russian:

top: "AMROM" -- which I am assuming is the AMROMIN family. My family
tree has at least a two-fold connection to the AMROMIN family; my
grandfather's brother, Simon NIKELSHPUR was married to Sarah AMROMINA,
and my g-grandfather, Zalman GOLDVERT, was was married to Eva AMROMINA.
However, I do not believe this picture to be of either of the two women.

bottom: "S Smala" -- I am not sure whether this is a name, or has
some other meaning.

There are also two stamps on the back: "Photogropher Bernshteyn, Gomel"
"Member of Russian photography association".

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.

they are marked on Google Maps for you:
