Hello,

It's been a while since I was on the list and am looking for information
about the Censae that Sir Moses Montifiore took in Jerusalem, I believe
they were taken before 1900. Am wondering if these records are searchable
and if so are they internet searchable?
Where do I access them? Please respond privately.

Thank you

Re: How to access the NY Times Archives Online/Times Select #general

Dear Cousins,

Yehuda ben Shlomo wrote, "...Another Jewishgen member who is >from New
York told me about a feature of the NY Times called TimesSelect. I called

I respond: Before you run off to sign up for Times Select, you should
know that although it is indeed free for people who get the New York Times
delivered, it only goes back as far as 1980, so its utility is for a much
more limited time frame than Proquest's version. It does not provide a
view of the actual article as Proquest does, but an html text view.

Posen, Prussia - BOF meeting / organization #germany

Barbara Siegel
 

Attention: All those with research interests in the area of Posen, Prussia.

A Posen,Prussia BOF has been scheduled for the NY2006 conference on
Wednesday, August 16 >from 9:30-10:45 A.M. The purpose of the meeting is
networking; sharing of research interests and rersources; an opportunity to
share successes, problems, etc.. We need to establish future goals,
communication vehicles and strategies, and develop an organizational
structure. This Posen,Prussia BOF group will NOT be limited to any regional
Posen section, but will include all of Posen, Prussia.

One of our first orders of business will be to construct a comprehensive
database of all those with interests in the area of Posen, Prussia. Past
efforts have had only limited success. In the interest of efficiency and
economy I am suggesting the following:

I would like for everyone who has research interests in this geographical
area to send me the following information *** in the body of the message** before
the Conference date,if possible.

1. I am/am not planning to attend the NY2006 Conference.
2. Your name.
3. E-mail address
4. Snail mail address
5. Tel.no.
6. Surnames being searched.
7. Town/s or Province in Posen,Prussia

I have a volunteer to make an Excel spreadsheet of this data, which hopefully
will then be ready to distribute to the attendees at the BOF. In any event, we
will already have a head start and can add new additions as they come in.

Please note, you do not have to be present at the NY Conference to have
your data on this database. But it will be very helpful to get a ballpark
idea of how many will be at the BOF so we can prepare enough copies, and
arrange for enough seating space.

Any additional ideas /suggestions are welcome. We would like to make this
BOF as successful as possible. I am also looking for someone to volunteer as
recording secretary at the session- any offers?
