ANNUAL NEW YEAR DONOR APPEAL #belarus

David Fox <davefox73@...>
 

Dear Members of the Belarus SIG,

As we prepare to celebrate the New Year please take a moment to consider
that JewishGen provides us with the vital source for our ongoing
genealogical research. JewishGen is still one of the only free
genealogical sitesfree to us, but not free to JewishGen who must bear the
monthly expense of providing all the resources we use daily without a
second thought. These are costs that must be met to overcome the current
shortfall.

To continue as a public service institution, JewishGen has launched the
first Annual New Year Donor Appeal. The goal is to raise $300,000 to carry
us through to the end of 2002 and to acquire the necessary hardware and
software applications for improved databases scheduled to begin going
online by October. There are two million records >from Yad Vashem and
other sources waiting to be made available to us!

The Belarus SIG has the following projects ready and waiting to go
online:

1. The Minsk Gubernia 1906 Duma (Voter) List with 16,000 records >from Minsk,
Pinsk, Mozyr, Igumen, Novogrudok, Borisov and Slutsk districts.
2. Addition birth, death, marriage, and Revison List records >from the the 13
CD Project
http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/detailed_inv_13_rolls.htm

SIG volunteers are currently working on the following projects and the costs
of preparing and keeping them available on line must be met before they are
added to the JewishGen servers:

1. Additional birth, death marriae, and Revision Lists >from the 13 CD
project.
2. Records (birth, death, divorce, revision lists) >from additional FHL films
that will be converted to add to the CD project.
3. Additional Vsia Rossiia (Russian Business Directories).
4. 1700's Census records >from Slutsk and other shtetls in Minsk gubernia.
5. Birth, death, divorce, and marriage records for Usviaty, Vitebsk
Guberniya 1883-1889 (LDS films 1923469 and 2065927).
6. Recently filmed Jewish vital records >from the Grodno Archive
http://www.jewishgen.org/belarus/grodno_records_fhl.htm

The financial support of each and every one of us is needed if JewishGen is
to continue as the only free site for Jewish genealogical research. Give
what you can afford, be it $25, the suggested annual minimum, or $100 (or
more) which will enroll you in the JGFFAlert. This is a system that
informs you via immediate e-mail if another researcher enters data into the
JGFF that has the potential of linking to your family names.

Please go now to
http://www.jewishgen.org/jewishgen-erosity/contribute.ihtml. With your
permission, your name will be listed on a special 2002 Annual New Year
Donor Appeal recognition site. We are asking that all our users make a
donation to the very best of their financial ability. Consider scheduling
a monthly deduction
from your credit card if this works best for you.
While JewishGen provides the infrastructure that supports the work of the
Belarus SIG, the acquiring of records, paid translators, software for
volunteer translators, copying and other administrative costs are paid for
from Belarus SIG funds. Therefore, I also ask that you consider making a
donation to the Belarus SIG general fund or to one of the SIG project.
Please go to http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/belarus.html to show
your support for the Belarus SIG.

On behalf of JewishGen and our and the leadship team of the Belarus SIG, our
very best wishes
for a healthy, happy and peaceful New Year.

HENKEN9@...
 

Genners,

Just a couple of observations to Larry Kriv's suggestions for ordering
microfilms >from an FHL branch. I would strongly suggest checking what
they have in their permanent collection before ordering. In addition,
I've been known to browse what others have recently ordered.

It's also possible, I believe, for you to put something into the permanent
collection yourself, for an additional fee (I'm not certain about that).
Larry's posting may have inadvertently suggested that the films can be
taken off-site, which is definitely not the case.

1930 US Census Occupation Codes #general

Joel Weintraub <jweintraub@...>
 

Let me add to Joan's post about Occupation Codes on the U.S. Census. Those
codes were added well after the enumeration was done. They are useful if
you can't read the handwriting on the schedule, but can read the code. The
IPUMS site does not presently have the codes for the 1930 Census. We have
those codes in our Census Utility section of the One Step 1930 Census site.

Dear Genners:

Sthasov, Poland #general

sallybru <sallybru@...>
 

I just found a new clan of Ruslanders thanks to a Jewishgen message about
the 1901 London Census online; now I am wondering what the town is where
they came from.

According to the census, which is pretty legible, they were >from Sthasov,
Poland-possibly Sthasor, but it looks like a v, and I would guess v in
Poland anyway.

Shtetl Seeker suggests this is Szczekaczewo, north of Warsaw. Anything is
possible as the family was all over by 1900, but originally they were in
Northeast Poland (by today's map). Does anyone have other ideas? Or
information?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
