I have no affiliation with Legacy Tree and recognize they are promoting their services.  However, I thought the article on the Romanian National Archives in Iaşi would be of interest.

Ancestry Debuts Searchable Online Obituary Collection #Commercial Genealogy Sites

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

Ancestry announced the launch of their new Newspapers.com Obituary Collection and an upgrade to their U.S. Obituary Collection. The digital archive now has over 262 million worldwide obituaries and death announcements.

 

Obituaries are a key tools for genealogists as they provide family information if there is a biographical sketch and may include information on place of birth, marriage, occupation, family members, where they reside, where they are buried and more.

 

According to the blog post, the new searchable collection is available on Ancestry ( a subscription service) and the original obituary images are hosted on Newspapers.com ( a subscription service).  Subscribers with an Ancestry All Access or Newspapers.com Basic subscription have a 1-click option to view the full obituary on Newspapers.com. Some images may require a Publisher Extra subscription as certain newspapers require additional licenses to view their content.

 

Ancestry’s U.S. Subscription Collection has obituaries starting with 1930 to the present day. This collection is collected by Ancestry searching the Internet for posted obituaries and they extract details such as the name of the deceased, important dates, and location information which is then placed into a searchable database.

 

For more information including how to search for an obituary see:

https://blogs.ancestry.com/ancestry/2019/10/28/powered-by-cutting-edge-machine-learning-technology-ancestry-debuts-the-worlds-largest-searchable-online-obituary-collection-providing-members-with-even-more-details-about-the-ancest/

 

Note: In the United States many public libraries have subscriptions to Ancestry Library Edition. Also Family History Centers have subscriptions to the Ancestry Library Edition.  You need to check with your local library as to which commercial sites they may offer.

 

I only post about commercial sites when there is a major new addition or feature, not when they regularly add to their existing collections.

 

I have no affiliation with Ancestry or any of its companies  and am posting this solely for the information of the readers.

Re: Who has access to the LDS library? (I need a microfilm)

Sally Bruckheimer
 

There are no more microfilms. The LDS is digitizing everything, and, if the information has been digitized, it should be viewable at a local LDS library. If it hasn't been digitized yet, you have to wait.

"Go to your library.  They should be able to request a loan of the film.  You would probably need to view it on the library 's microfilm reader on the library premises."
 


Re: Who has access to the LDS library? (I need a microfilm)

Barbara S. Weitz
 

You need to send them a message here: https://www.familysearch.org/help/    and tell them your problem and exactly what you need.  There are 2 in Cyprus.  Can you call them?


Re: Who has access to the LDS library? (I need a microfilm)

Robert Heuman
 

The closest LDS Family Center Libraries to Israel seem to be 3 in Cyprus
with limited hours.

Austrian citizenship

Moe Neuer
 

My paternal grandfather lived in Galicia and was a soldier for Austria in WW I, dying in Italy after being injured. His son, born 1907, moved to Canada from what was then Poland  c. 1930, and my family became Canadian citizens. Any idea if I can claim Austrian citizenship?

A Thank You and Some Further Inquiries #hungary

Amit N
 

Hello all,

Thank you very much for your incredible help with my inquiry about
DEUTSCH Antal, b. in Ujpest on 1958, and married LICHTENSTEIN Roza.
With your help I learned a lot about his family and children.
In addition, I would like to try and locate his death notice/obituary.
He apparently died on May 6th, 1905, according to one death record. I
am also looking for the death notice of LICHTENSTEIN Mor, his father
in law, who was born in 1838 and died in 1916. He was married to KLING
Julia.
Where can I find such documents? I have tried my best searching
hungaricana,hu, but with no luck. Is there another place to search
Hungarian newspapers?

Thank you very much once more,

Indeed, there were 19 individual GerSIG messages in that time period.
But for those who receive their GerSIG messages in digest form (i.e.

Go to your library.  They should be able to request a loan of the film.  You would probably need to view it on the library 's microfilm reader on the library premises.
