Ancestry Announces Two Improved Features #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

IAJGS was invited to participate in an invitation-only conference call with
Ancestry staff and other genealogical reporters where they introduced two
improved features: new member profile and new messenger. While both are in
Beta they are 100 percent available to users.

New Profile

As with the "old" profile to access it go where it says account (upper
right) and on the drop box click on profile. Under your name is a green BETA
sign. If it is gray then it is off, and switch it to on. Make certain it
is on. On the same "ribbon" it will say "You're viewing the new profile". On
the left it will say "personal profile".

Similar to the "old" profile it will have your name, location, websites,
language(s) spoken, research interests. There is a place for a photo.
Ancestry has researched and found any photo and location filled in will
result in an increase three-fold your responses. It can be a photo of you,
your pet or anything, as long as there is a photo there the response rate is
higher. Crista Cowen , the Barefoot Genealogist, uses a photo of her feet!

On the new profile are also your DNA estimates along with matches. These
only appear in on your private profile not your public profile. Displaying
the name of private searchable trees, people, records one still has to grant
permission for others to access this on your profile. There is also the
opportunity to add a link to a personal website that you would like to share
with others-see the paper clip just below it lists the date you have been an
Ancestry member.

On your public tree the personal profile is on the upper left. The public
profile does not contain your ethnicity estimates. However, if you want
your ethnicity matches on your public profile you can chose everyone on
Ancestry or only you on your personal profile. The public profile has your
photograph, name, location, since you were a member, the last time you
logged in, the language(s) you speak, and your research interests. If you
have a family tree uploaded it will also display your family tree if you
have designated it as a public tree.

For privacy concerns "new DNA Matches" cannot be shown to anyone.

Messaging

For those of us who have been wondering if someone actually received our
emails through Ancestry this is a big improvement. This has been rolled out
as a Beta and not all subscribers and guests will get it immediately-but
will in a short period of time. Worldwide it will be available by June. What
is a big positive is that it is in real time! This will tell us if our
messages were read and more.

We were advised that the "folders' capability will not be migrated over and
there was some discussion among the invited guests about this. Whether
Ancestry will reconsider this at a later date was not discussed.

Another enhancement is one can send attachments or copy a link in the new
messaging system.

One can search the body and content of the message.

At the time of writing this posting there is nothing on the Ancestry website
about these new changes. Watch for them I am certain they will be
forthcoming.

Their most recent blog post is about the new features they introduced at
RootsTech last month on ThruLines , MyTreeTags and improved DNA Matching

information of the reader.

LitvakSIG - New batch of Vilnius household registers is now available #lithuania

Russ Maurer
 

LitvakSIG is pleased to announce that batch 5 of the Vilnius household
registers is now available to qualified donors.

The registers were created between 1919 and 1940 when Wilno (Vilnius)
city and Wilno voivodeship were part of Poland. The registers contain
detailed information about everyone who lived in Wilno at that time,
as well as information about many visitors. They will potentially hold
discoveries for anyone whose family was in that general area, which
today includes parts of Lithuania, Belarus, and northeast Poland. I
urge you to check the free batch previews described below, even if you
don't think your family was ever in Vilnius. There have already been
unexpected discoveries. There are countless mentions of locations
outside the immediate Vilnius area.

As this is a very large project that will go on for years, we are
releasing data in batches of about 5000 lines. Batch 5, 5059 lines,
includes four large apartment buildings located at Zawalna 8 and
Wielka Stefanska 20, 24, and 25. You can find these streets on our
Vilnius interactive street map
(https://www.litvaksig.org/vilnius-map/). To help you determine if
this batch or a previous batch is relevant to your research, you can
review a file containing previews of all five batches to date
(http://tinyurl.com/VHR-previews). The batch preview is a bare-bones
version of the batch spreadsheet containing just the full name and
year of birth (or age) of each person. The previews are presented both
in original order and alphabetically by surname. The previews also
include instructions to qualify to receive the full batch data.

More information about the Vilnius household registers can be found on
the VHR home page,
https://www.litvaksig.org/research/special-projects/vilnius-household-regis

Any inquiries related to VHR should be directed to me at

ViewMate #VM 72696 translation request - Portuguese #latinamerica

Margarita Lacko
 

Hello Latam-siggers,

I have posted an immigration card of Folmer FAURING to Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Looks like he entered permanently on 18-sept-1945. But the back side of the
card confuses me.

1) It says that he landed on 25-sep-1946. Did he go back to Copenhagen
13-feb-1946 to obtain another passport with a visa?
2) What does "carteira modelo" mean?
3) Looks like he made a round trip to Buenos Aires.
4) On 17-aug-1948 he needed a visa for Denmark? Why would he need a visa for
Denmark if he is Danish?

I would greatly appreciate a translation as accurate as possible. Thank you.

The record is on ViewMate number 72696 at the following address ...
http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/viewmateview.asp?key=VM72696

Please respond via the form provided in the ViewMate application.
Thank you very much.

Yizkor Book Project, March 2019 #latinamerica

bounce-3668522-772964@...
 

Shalom,

As it is quite likely that this finds you in the midst of preparations
for the Pesach/Passover holiday, I will try not to take up to much of
your time. I would, however, like to let you know about the highlight
activities of the Yizkor Book Project during March.

During last month I was pleasantly surprised and delighted to receive
donations of complete books that we have now placed online. The books are:

- " My Survival" written by Israel Stern z"l, a survivor of the community
of Mielnice, now Melnytsya-Podilska, Ukraine was kindly presented to the
YB Project by his grandson, David Stern.
- " Frampol in the memory of its descendants" is a book in Russian about
the community of Frampol, Ukraine which is now called Kosohirka. It was
written by Mikhail Freyder and Roman Geller in order to preserve the
memory of their ancestor's community of Frampol and has been gratefully
been made available to our project.

I am always pleased to see the addition of material written in languages
other than English as it enables the exposure of this important material
to an even wider audience. The material we do have in other languages
appears in our Translations Index (link below) under the category "Other
languages" and includes material in Hebrew, Spanish, French, Polish,
Russian and even, Lithuanian.

Further good news is that in March we completed uploading the "Preserving
Our Litvak Heritage" book abut various communities in Lithuania, kindly
presented to us by Joel Alpert. For your information, this book is also
available for purchase under the auspices of our Yizkor Books in Print
Project.

And on the YBIP Project, last month yet another new book hit the shelves
- "Memorial book of the Ritavas Community" about the community of
Rietavas, Lithuania. Once again, the wheels of this project continue to
roll and present us with new books on a regular basis and we have Joel
Alpert and his dedicated and talented team of volunteers to thank for that.

Now, all that is left for me before our list of new and updated projects,
is to wish you dear readers and your families a most enjoyable Pesach/
Passover holiday.

And now for the additions and updates are what we've carried out during
