Dear group

The JRI-Poland Shtetl Co-Op project for Pabianice, near Lodz, has only a

Is any kind group member willing to translate only 6 index pages (about 20
names per page) ?

Once we do this we will have finished extracting names >from all of the
approx. 2300 records >from 1831 through to 1870.

If you can help or if you would like to know more about this project, then

[jri-pl] JRI-Poland Introduces Express Service for Ordering Records #scandinavia

This might also be of interest to some Scandinavia Genners:

Some researchers ordering records using the Shopping Basket Order
System http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/neworder.htm may be willing
to pay a premium for fast service. For these researchers, Jewish
Records Indexing - Poland and the Polish State Archives (PSA)
have launched an Express Service for ordering records using the
JRI-Poland Shopping Basket order system. This Service is
currently available >from three Archive branches participating in
a Pilot Project - Bialystok, Lomza, and Lublin.

Express Service enables researchers who need records quickly
(within a week) to acquire them at a premium price. Only records
that are currently available through the JRI-Poland Shopping
Basket order system can be ordered using Express Service.

Express Service orders must be placed by FAX with payment only by
Credit Card (VISA and MasterCard). The Archives will scan the
records and the images will be sent to researchers via email.

For more information about this Service and the ordering
procedure, please access the JRI-Poland webpage at
http://www.jri-poland.org/psa/express.htm.

All questions about Express Service should be directed to the
JRI-Poland Order Processing Center at
orderqueries@jri-poland.org.

A correction to the previous message:

Yesterday, I made an announcement about the new Express ordering
service and said this service applied to three Polish State
Archives (PSA) branches. Although JRI-Poland and PSA have every
intention of including Lomza in this Pilot program, I was
premature in announcing their inclusion.

At the current time only Bialystok and Lublin are included in the
Pilot program. Lomza will be added at a later date and this will
be announced on this forum.

Re: searching family from Nesvizh #belarus

Carol Skydell <cskydell@...>
 

Millie Schlapnik asks about strategies for connecting with families....,

In my experience, the single most successful strategy is to use the
JewishGen Family Finder ! List all the names you are researching and also
search on TOWN to connect with others who are searching families >from
Nesvizh. They may not have entered every name of interest, but may find a
name in their personal lists that have a connection to one of yours.

There is no limit on the number of names you may enter in the JGFF, so
enter them all!

Form Numbers at Social Security Adminstration #general

s_wiener@...
 

Hi, fellow-Genners,

After only 5 weeks, I received the social security application for a deceased
cousin or niece of my great-grandfather. As often happens when one researches, it
answered some questions and gave rise to more. On the overall, a good experience.
BUT... I have three technical questions that perhaps someone can answer.

I requested [per one of the other genealogy web-sites suggests] a photocopy of the
actual application for a Social Security card, (Form SS-5 Social Security Number
Record Third Party Request for Photocopy.) I received an enlarged photocopy of
Form 3227 - U.S. Treasury Dep't. - IRS Application for an Account Number, which
looks exactly like the form that I filled out for myself in 1971.

Should I have asked for the Form SS-5 in the first place? This cousin applied
when she was 66-69 years old in 1963. When I wrote the letter to the Social
Security Adminstration I had no idea as to when she had applied. [She had been
widowed during the Depression.] Was the form number or method of giving out
Social Security cards and numbers changed at some point? Would it make it easier
for the Social Security Adminstration if one asks for one form prior to a certain
date and another form after said date?

As always, many thanks in advance.

Polish Marriage Certificate Translation #general

Wayne N. Frankel <wnf@...>
 

Dear Listers,

I was wondering if someone can translate a Polish marriage certificate into
English. I could not post it at viewmate because the file is too large (well, I
could post it at lower resolution, but it would not do you any good).

If someone is willing to have a crack at this, I can email the file directly to
them.

I do have an abstracted translation, of names, places and dates, but I want to
make sure they are correct (there were some question marks). Also I would be
interested to learn if there were more specifics of interest (like occupation,
etc).

Please email me directly if you can help.

Thanks for your help,
