Surname searching online for UK vital records? #general

alexallen@...
 

My maternal grandmother left Bessarabia in the early 1900s, following several
aunts, sisters and brothers to London (where they settled), and she eventually
on to New York. I have been unsuccessful in locationg an online index for
searching UK immigration, naturalisation, marriage, birth or death records
by surname online? I read the Beginner's Guide to Jewish Genealogy in Great
Britain pamphlet that I bought at a Jewishgen convention & I've examined the
[familyrecords.gov.uk] site. Both suggest that you can search for surnames
online, but I'm stumped on locating an index (along the lines of JRI-Poland)
of records that are available for any of those categories of vital documents.
Any assistance will appreciated.

Re: Posting Courtesy on JewishGen #general

Celia Male <celiamale@...>
 

Ann Rabinowitz writes with a de-facto statement:
"When you are responding to a posting on the JewishGen
or other digests, please do not copy everyone who has
also responded to this posting. They can easily read
the followup responses on the digest themselves if they
are interested. It is courteous to copy the original
poster to ensure that he/she reads your response."

May I be permitted to present a completely opposite
point of view?

When I reply to a posting initially, I always include
the original correspondent in my address list. The
reasons for this are manifold - first and foremost, a
personal touch and out of *courtesy*; secondly, a
posting in a digest does not register the name of the
correspondent in my address book however, when I send
them a mail, their name is recorded in my address book
and I can immediately cross-index it with a subject,
date, names and places for further links if they ever
should arise - otherwise I have to wrack my brains and
search the message archives. Thirdly, my reply may not
be published - i.e. the moderators may reject it - how
then would the correspondent see it and it may indeed
be of interest to them!

Fourthly, I may also network the message to others who
have similar interests and do not receive the digest.
They might be included in a bcc list. I know that the
General Discussion Group Digest is received by very
few Austria-Czech members. I presume the same
situation appertains to members of other SIGs.

Good genealogy thrives on links, side-branches,
observation, good memory and clear and careful
recording. Good memory can fail us all at times.
Networking, via the internet is a dream for good
genealogy.

Similarly, were someone to reply to one of my
postings, I would expect them out of *courtesy*, to
add my name to the cc or bcc list. I would like to
receive a reply *before* it appears in the digest! I
would also like to be included in follow up
correspondence off-list if it occurs and would like to
record names of others interested in the same topic in
my address book for further links.

It is easy to write a polite note saying one is no
longer interested in the subject and one wishes to be
removed >from a cc/bcc list of correspondents, but it
is not easy to find out if a mail is circulating which
could be of interest to you and others you know - and
these mails could be mainly "off-list" by then.

So, although I respect everyone's personal point of
view, to make such a dogmatic, de-facto statement to
cover the whole of Jewishgen digests, is to my mind
not in the interests of good genealogy.

And finally, it is also easy to miss a reply in a long
digest - this has happened before - I know from
personal experience!

I've looked over the current offerings, which are mostly German so far - if
they'd been mostly Polish, I'd have been up a creek.

First, one must realize that this is not the University of Wroclaw's site,
but that of the **Technical** University. The listings are in line with
this - they're all science, engineering & architecture titles. One cannot
expect that they'll be digitizing holdings [if they have them] outside these
areas any time soon - it's just not the scope of this institution.

Also, I note >from a Festschrift that's online already, the TU was founded in
1910. Therefore, its holdings can't be expected to have the depth of older
institutions-- most of the top research libraries in US universities are
considerably older than this.

All this said, there are a few items items of peripheral interest to
genealogists - a book on the architecture & history of buildings in the
Ring/Rynek in Breslau/Wroclaw, and a book on "recent" buildings in
Opeln/Opole.

Dear Jack,
the contemporary German zip code book has at least 9 major entries for
Neunkirchen plus a few more for smaller places. If you want to have
success with your research you should try to indicate in what area of
Germany your Neunkirchen could most likely be. With kind regards

A good source for information on synagogues and other Jewish organizations
in Long Island's two suburban counties -- Nassau and Suffolk - is

www.lijewishlinks.org/

This site, sponsored by COJONC (the Council of Jewish Organizations
of Nassau County) and SCOJO (the Suffolk Council of Jewish Organizations),
offers a "Find a Synagogue" link on the upper right-hand corner

Here we are folks, on JewishGen's bulletin board. Someone asks for a
map of the ukraine to locate 3 towns.

Well, we have the greatest shtetl locator available ... the JewishGen
Shtetlseeker....just go there, click on "find towns", enter your town
and the country....(soundex is built in)..and voila...3 ways to view
the maps...(i prefer mapquest)...

www.jewishgen.org/shtetlseeker

and one wonderful tool too....you wont find this on any other map!
Jot down the latitude/longitude of your main shtetl....put that into
your next search and the ShtetlSeeker will tell you the distance
between the 2 towns!! so you'll know if you are in the right area.
