I recently found a site that contains a database of everybody(?) that
is buried in the ancient cemetary in Zfat. the URL is
http://www.safedfound.org.il/

Follow the 'Ancient Cemetery' link to a searchable database.

What a surprising first reaction to a proposed project! Can we be a

I created a web site all the information contained in each volume, after

See:

The author didn't agree to post the lists in the internet, except the one in Vol
5 which is located at:

Through interlibrary loan, I have collected 6 volumes that list Jews
who served in the armed forces in Poland during World War II. The
author is Benjamin Meirtchak. (Details are below.) Within each
volume, there are many separate lists, thereby making a thorough
search for a surname across all of the volumes quite tedious. It
would certainly be useful to have these lists available on the web.
I count about 600 pages in these books, for a total of (likely) over
ten-thousand names. Has anyone considered trying to make such a
database on the web? Or perhaps does one already exist?

first check rights to do build a database from a book - word of caution #poland

Rose Feldman <rosef@...>
 

Lets us remember that we have to take into considerations copyrights of
books before we undertake projects like building databases based on them.
These are "new" books, that last one having been published within the last
year.
I don't have the books in front of me, so I can't say if they are
copyrighted or not.
from other projects I have participated in on JewishGen, I know that they
request permission >from the author/publisher to publish pieces of works on
the site. So I suggest being careful and checking with the author or/and
publisher.

Yoni,

The NY Times archives can be searched back to 1996 at
http://query.nytimes.com/search/advanced

The search is free. The first line or so of the article (or obit) will show on
the screen (at no charge). If you want to read the entire article on line
there is a small fee. The exact prices are clearly posted at the web site.

good luck in your search,

good morning,

Would anyone know what repository holds mid-19th century naturalizations from
Buffalo (Erie County), New York?

Also, does a surname index exist for these records?

Thank you for any information,

Sherri Bobish
