transcribed them.

Gesher Galicia's Vital Records 2017 project currently contains record
sets >from 22 Galician towns, five of which towns have been fully
completed so far. More records for indexing will be added to the
project during the coming year. See:

me understand the content of these records >from the vicinity of
Horodenka, a town formerly in Galicia and now part of Ukraine. Here

ViewMate request -- Deciphering Samuel LOUIS's birth place in Prussia #germany

Renee Steinig
 

I just posted on ViewMate the United States passport application filed
by Samuel LOUIS in 1888. It's at this address:

http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM53979

I'm having trouble deciphering Samuel's town of birth and would
appreciate hearing what others think.

More about Samuel:

Censuses and other documents indicate that he was born in Prussia
c.1826 and immigrated to the U.S. c.1850. He was naturalized in New
York City in 1855. Samuel married Ernestine ANSPACH and had five
children: Augusta, Simon, Charles Henry, Ray (Rachel), and Bertha,
most of whom were born in Stockton, California, where the family lived
for at least 10 years. They were back in NYC by 1870 and Samuel died
there in 1907.

Please respond to me privately or in the space provided on ViewMate.

Many thanks, Renee Stern Steinig, Dix Hills NY genmaven@gmail.com

MacKiev Introduces FamilySync--Ancestry to Cease Supporting TreeSync #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Last year Ancestry announced its sale of its desktop genealogy software
Family Tree Maker to Software MacKiev-and for one year Ancestry provided
customer and product support. Ancestry announced today on their blog,
https://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/ that TreeSync will be replaced by
Software MacKiev's FamilySyncT. According to the blog, Ancestry's search,
merge and Ancestry hints will all work with the new FamilySync, as they do
now with their Ancestry trees. FamilySync will only be available in
Software MacKiev's Family Tree Maker 2017 edition which will be released on
March 31, 2017. As of March 29, 2017 Ancestry will no longer support
TreeSync and Software MacKiev will continue to handle all related customer
questions for Family Tree Maker. Between March 29 when Ancestry ceases
TreeSync and March 31 when MacKiev begins its FamilySyncT there may be a
short period of interruption for synching functionality.,

The upgrade is free for those who purchased MacKiev Family Tree Maker
edition since March 1, 2016. For those with previous Ancestry editions or
have a free copy of Family Tree Maker 2014.1 or Mac 3.1. are eligible for
discounted upgrades. If you sign up for pre-orders before March 29 there is
a discounted price and the rate increases after that. For more information
see the blog posting mentioned above.

For more information and discounted upgrade offers see:
www.familytreemaker.com

Please do not contact me for information. I am posting this only because
this is a major change of a software product used by many genealogists. I do
not normally post about changes to software or additions to collections by
the various genealogical software companies as all the genealogy database
companies consistently add to their collections, and software programs have
many upgrades. Due to the unique nature of this change-to a totally
different company-- I am posting about this announcement. My posting should
not be perceived either as an endorsement or non-endorsement of this or any
genealogical product. Everyone needs to determine which software program is
best for themselves.

I have no affiliation with Ancestry nor Software MacKiev and am posting this
solely for the information of the reader.

They left Latvia in 1882 with their two children Yenta and Joseph for France.
He was tailor and she was dressmaker. Rochel's father calls maybe Leopold.
They are both dead in France. They had three children in France in addition to
their first two children, Eva, Henri and Charles.

(UK) FamilySearch London Centre Microfilms to be Housed at Society of Genealogists #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

I recently posted about FamilySearch and the demise of their microfilms and
cessation of borrowing them >from Salt Lake City at some time in the future.
I also mentioned in the UK, that FamilySearch was in negotiations with The
National Archives and the Society of Genealogists as to where to house the
ones that had been temporarily placed at the National Archives. I promised
when more information was known to post that information to this discussion
list.

The Society of Genealogists (SOG) has announced that the London FamilySearch
Centre microfilm collection will be transferring to the SOG in Clerkenwell.
This is partnership between the SOG and FamilySearch and will enable the
microfilm collection to be available to family historians. The London
FamilySearch Centre will continue to provide its research support services
at the National Archives. The FamilySearch collection is about 57,000
microfilms.

The films will be available to view at the National Archives until 31 May
and expected to be available at SOG starting 26 June 2017.

The SOG is a membership organization. Based on what is on their website
regarding visitor fees, http://www.sog.org.uk/the-library/visitor-fees/ one
can safely assume for SOG non-members wanting to access the microfilms, will
be subject to the fees listed on the website. See the website
http://www.sog.org.uk/the-library for more information on how to get there
and Library catalogue.

Thank you to Dick Eastman and the Eastman Online Genealogy Newsletter for
posting the notice >from the SOG regarding the new home for the London Centre
