Privacy issue #general

Phyllis Blumenfeld <plblum@...>
 

I have of course been following the discussion on the above and today
ironically, I received a request for someone for information that I
had sent to another party *Privately*. But evidently there is no such
thing as a 3rd party picked up the email on the Internet. This really
makes privacy a moot point.

Yizkor book work load #general

Joyce Field <jfield@...>
 

Dear JewishGenners,

Good news and bad news.

The good news is that >from January to June of this year we added 57
new translated books and 60 updates to our web site at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/translations.html. More good news:
we also have more books in the html queue than we have ever had.

The bad news is that even though we have doubled our html staff over
the past year, we are still behind. This is summer and everyone,
including our dedicated volunteers, should take some time off and
spend time with family. In addition, two of our volunteers have
daughters being Bat Mitzvah this summer. You can appreciate the
parents' commitment to that event.

So we ask all of our wonderful donors, without whom this project
would not exist, to be patient. We are in the process of adding
more technical staff who can help us handle the work load as the
amount of work that is being submitted is longer and more complex.

May I hear a rousing round of applause for the hard working Yizkor
Book Project volunteers!!!

In order to insure the maximum degree of privacy possible in a
public website, JewishGen has redesigned the submission process
for those who enter their surnames/towns of interest into the
JewishGen Family Finder (JGFF). New entrants using the ENTER
feature will find all this spelled out. JewishGenners who have
already entered their data will be able to make the changes in
the MODIFY mode.

First, we are offering the following choices on how you want
your contact address to be displayed. You simply select
whichever format you prefer, choosing >from the following three
options:

1. Display my researcher code only (provides maximum privacy
through a protected e-mail contact system, similar to that
used with the Family Tree of the Jewish People (FTJP)).
This is a new feature.

2. Display my name and e-mail address (insures privacy to a
degree).

3. Display my name, e-mail address, and complete postal
address (least degree of privacy).

Further, since JewishGen reserves the right to contact JGFF
submitters with information regarding projects or programs which
may enhance individual research, we are offering the following
for how you want your JGFF information shared:

1. Share my details with JewishGen partnered or hosted
organizations which might benefit my research.
(This option has been pre-selected on your behalf)

You are free to change the selection to:

2. DO NOT share my details with any other organization.

All of the above are examples of what you will find if you click
on ENTER as a brand new entrant to the JGFF, or under MODIFY if
you are already listed in the JGFF. You must go to the JGFF to
effect these changes:
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff>.

Those using the MODIFY system will need to be prepared with
their Researcher Code and Password in order to make any
changes.

If you have forgotten your Researcher Code, go to the JGFF at
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff> and click on SEARCH. Type in
any surname or town that you have previously listed in the
database, and you can then scroll through the search results.
When you find your name listed, you will see your JGFF
Researcher Code in parenthesis right next to your name. Please
write it down and consider taping it right onto your computer.
For more information, see
<http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgff-faq.html#q5.10>.

If you have forgotten your password, send an e-mail to
<password@lyris.jewishgen.org>, providing your full name,
address and Researcher Code. When you get your password by
return e-mail, please write it down as well, , especially if it
is a
series of numbers. When you go into MODIFY, it's a good idea to
modify your password >from a number to a word that you will
remember.

Once in the MODIFY screen, enter your Researcher Code and
Password, and select the first option, "Modify Researcher
Information (Your Name/Address/Password/Display)", and you will
be taken to the page that has all the information that you've
entered regarding your name/address/password/display. Make
whatever changes you like and then be sure to click on the
button that says "Update Researcher Details"

If you need help please send a message explaining the problem to
<techsupport@lyris.jewishgen.org>.

Our final effort at insuring that the JGFF is not used by
professionals soliciting research for a fee or making any
attempt to sell you information or products, is to provide a
help desk for you to contact should you be approached by anyone
with a product or a service for sale. Please address all
instances of abuse to <JGFFabuse@jewishgen.org> enclosing a copy
of whatever message you have received that you consider to be an
invasion of your privacy.

For more information about the JewishGen Family Finder, see
the "JGFF FAQ" at <http://www.jewishgen.org/jgff/jgff-faq.html>.

Please, do not send your desired changes to me. YOU ARE
EXPECTED TO MANAGE THIS YOURSELF and JewishGen has no
secretarial staff to make changes for you.

Many thanks for your anticipated cooperation.

birthplace Bolyar in Kosice records? #hungary

Rakoff125
 

My great GM appears in the Kosice birth records for Nov. 1870, her later
marriage records and the birth of her children in Kosice indicate her place
of birth as Bolyar (Saros megye). Can anyone explain this to me?
Also, her death certificate list an Oct. 1869 birth date. Can anyone figure
out why there would be such a descrepancy? Pure error by a clerk?
Thanks.

My public library has purchased the above mentioned book ($45) and I

The book is 587 pages long and there are more than 500 postcard pictures.

Some of the postcards have handwriting on them in French, Yiddish or
German.

The printed captions are mostly German and Cyrillic. There are some
pictures taken in cemeteries and the writing on the tombstones is
amazingly clear. There are pictures of individuals and groups of people,
most are unidentified, but perhaps someone will recognize a familiar face.
A few pictures show the aftermath of pogroms and nazi propaganda.

I have no financial interest in this book, the details given by Micheline
are the same in the copy I borrowed. There is a fax (415-924-9615) and
the ISBN is 1-58423-018-5. I think this book should be a part of any

Can someone respond (privately) to advise what a reference in an 1870

What country or general area would this be at that point in time?
