If you can find an educational institution or public library that subscribes to
the electronic Proquest backfile of The New York Times, you can pull up obits
for any issue. Then you can email the graphic image of the obit to yourself as
an .pdf file.

Sorting the text manifest by line number #general

Diane Jacobs <kingart@...>
 

Looks like Steve Morse has done it again. I just visited his Ellis Island
Jewish-Passenger website and discovered that he has incorporated the ability
to sort the text version of the manifest by line numbers.

The Ellis Island folks used to sort it that way initially (that
certainly makes the most sense) but many months ago they made a change
and the passengers are now displayed in a random order. For the life of
me, I can't understand why they did that.

What Steve has done (the work was actually done by a computer genius in
Switzerland -- Yves Goulnik) is to intercept the text manifest that the
Ellis Island site sends back and re-sort it so that the passengers are
in the right order.

To see this in action, go to Steve's Jewish-passenger search form:

http://home.pacbell.net/spmorse/ellis/ellisjw.html

and do a search. When you get the results you'll see a link that says
"text manifest" and another that says "text manifest (sorted)".

Clicking on the first link gives the text manifest that the Ellis Island
site created and the second link gives Yves' rearrangement of the
manifest.

So far this only works if you access the text manifest starting from
Steve's blue (Jewish Passenger) search form. But when I asked about
that, Steve said that Yves is currently looking into extending that to
work with the white (all passenger) search form as well.

If you have any questions regarding this new feature, please send your
inquiries directly to Steve Morse as I have no expertise or any information
about it.

Good luck!

JGSGP Contribution to JewishGen #general

Mark Halpern <Willie46@...>
 

At a regular Board of Directors Meeting of the Jewish Genealogical
Society of Greater Philadelphia (JGSGP), the Board resolved to make
a contribution to JewishGen in an amount equal to approximately
$1 per member.

The Board is proud to support JewishGen. We think that JewishGen
is a necessary resource for all IAJGS member Societies and all of
our members. We do not have a Society meeting or publish our quarterly
Journal without reference to one or more of the resources available
through JewishGen.

The Board of the JGSGP challenges all IAJGS member societies and all
members of those Societies to support JewishGen now and always.

Jewish Encyclopedia is On Line #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

This website <http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/index.jsp>; contains the
complete contents of the 12-volume Jewish Encyclopedia, which was originally
published between 1901-1906. The Jewish Encyclopedia, which recently became
part of the public domain, contains over 15,000 articles and illustrations.

This online version contains the unedited contents of the original
encyclopedia. Since the original work was completed almost 100 years ago, it
does not cover a significant portion of modern Jewish History (e.g., the
creation of Israel, the Holocaust, etc.).

There is an on line search feature, but different transliteration standards
100 years ago may require some trial and error searching for names.

If anyone finds anything about their families in the Encyclopedia, please
share your good fortune by posting a message to the SIG discussion group.

Announcement: Nancy Holden - SIG Research Coordinator #belarus

David M. Fox <davefox73@...>
 

I am very pleased to announce that Nancy Collier Holden, who has Belarus
roots, has accepted the very important position of the Belarus SIG Research
Coordinator. A former Special Education teacher, Nancy has an advanced
degree in Supervision and Administration, has done graduate work in Clinical
Psychology and Human Development, and has had extensive extensive
administrative experience. Since her retirement, Nancy has lectured on
Jewish genealogy and served as a volunteer at the National Archives Regional
Branch in Laguna Niguel, California. She is also a past president of the
Jewish Genealogical Society of Orange County and a past editor of the
Society's newsletter.

In addition to all the above, Nancy is the current Editor of the Svensionys
Yizkor Book and Editor of RootsKey, the newsletter of JGSLA. Nancy is also
the webmaster of five ShtetLink pages, including Svir, Svisloch, and the
Ukraine agricultural colonies which were populated by people >from Belarus.

Nancy grew up in New York City and has lived in California since 1952. She
has been working on her family history for 19 years and traveled for many
years in the United States collecting stories, visiting cemeteries and
viewing photographs as a way of filling in her family lines. Nancy has
traced her father's line back to the 1400=B9s and her mother's line to 1700,
working through the Grodno Archives, The Lithuanian Archives and the Latvian
Archives with wonderful results. In the course of this search, Nancy had to
learn to read Hebrew, Rashi script, and Russian well enough to be able to
decipher names and places and rudimentary biographical information.

Among her many duties, Nancy will be managing the SIG's research efforts,
providing guidance to project leaders, developing and maintaining a list of
SIG volunteers, and being the liaison to the JewishGen Research Vice
President.


The members of this SIG are most fortunate to have someone of Nancy's
caliber heading up the SIG research efforts. I know Nancy will do an
outstanding job and hope that you will show your appreciation by
volunteering your time and talents to the SIG. You can contact Nancy at
<nholden@interserv.com>. Please don't wait to be asked, volunteer to help
the SIG today. If you can't spare the time, please make a financial
donation to the Belarus SIG and JewishGen by going to:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/belarus.html today.

Please welcome Nancy to the Belarus SIG leadership team and start the New
Year off by making a commitment to volunteer your time to the SIG and make a
financial donation to support adding more material to the SIG website.

Shanna Tovah,

Dave
