(Scotland) 1881 Census Free Access; Scotlands Places Free to Search Places #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

In late September I posted about the new Scotlands People website and for
the first time one can research free of charge the index to records
including statutory records of births, deaths and marriages. At the time I
missed that you can now search and view the LDS transcription of the
Scotland 1881 census completely free. You must register (it's free). If you
are a registered user, you will need to login in with your password and you
will be prompted to set a user name and password email address and
password. If you have not registered previously you need to login in.

To register go to: https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/. The site has videos
on how to login, register, checking your account and about the website. To
access the videos go to: www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/exploring-new-site

Once you have registered and to access the census go to the advanced search:
https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/advanced-search. Click on Census returns
and under select click on 1881 (LDS) and you'll see that all the results are
free to view! While it says "view" you will get the full transcript.

More Free Scotland Searches: Another Scottish site is Scotlands Places
where you can search across three national databases to access historical
resources relating to places throughout Scotland.

The user is able to enter a place name or a coordinate to search across
these collections or they can use the mapping in the website to both define
and refine their search. Information is >from the following sources:
Historic Environment Scotland (HES)
The National Records of Scotland (NRS)
The National Library of Scotland (NLS)
with support >from School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh
and the Scottish Government.
To search go to: http://www.scotlandsplaces.gov.uk/ Enter a place name
into the search box, or elect a county >from the map on the first page.

Thank you to Peter Calver, Lost Cousins.com for advising us about the census
and ScotlandsPlaces.

Scotlands People is a pay-per view site except for those areas mentioned
above that are free. To read about the cost of credits and how they are
batched see:

Yizkor Book Project, September 2016 #warsaw #poland

bounce-3214549-772981@...
 

Shalom,

My monthly Yizkor Book report to you is in perfect timing to wish you all a
Shana Tova Umetuka or, in other words, a Sweet New Year!

This month I am extremely proud to announce the completion of two books. The
first is the Radzyn Podlaski, Poland Yizkor book which was translated by
Nachman, Temy and Yaakov Goldwasser and includes some additional
translations kindly donated through the auspices of Monica Westrick. The
completion of this book is a wonderful achievement and is the result of many
years of labor of love. The second book is the Radyvyliv, Ukraine Yizkor
book which was coordinated by Ron Doctor and Ellen Garshick. Ellen
coordinated the translation prepared by a dedicated band of translators and
all those involved in this project are definitely deserving of our grateful
appreciation for this successful end result.

Another contribution to the Yizkor Book Project over this past month was an
article kindly donated to us by Myrna Brodsky Siegel in which she describes
how she became involved in the translation of the Maychet (Molchadz) Yizkor
book. This book is yet another that has been completely translated and also
one that has been published by the Yizkor Books in Print Project. The
success of this project only came about because of Myrna's unending
dedication to seeing it through. For those of you involved in the
coordination or translation of a Yizkor book, this is a worthwhile read and
may be found at our Yizkor Book Insights page:
http://www.jewishgen.org/Yizkor/ybinsights.html

And in regards to the Yizkor Books in Print Project, this past month it
published, can you believe it, its 50th book: "Memorial Book of Goniadz
Poland". I have run out of superlatives to thank Joel Alpert and his team
and just look forward to seeing the next 50 books go to print. Details of
where this book and the other 49 books now available can be seen at
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/ybip.html

On a much sadder note, we learnt this week about the untimely passing of Ada
Holtzman z"l whose name you may be familiar with because it does widely
throughout the Yizkor Book Project. Over the years, Ada contributed numerous
translations and was ever willing to assist where she could in helping out
in the YB Project. She was above all, a true "mensch", and my saying that
she will be sorely missed is definitely an understatement.

And now for all the changes and additions that were carried out in the
Yizkor Book Project over September.

We have added in three new books:

- Khomsk, Belarus (Scroll of Khomsk)
http://www.jewishgen.org/yizkor/Khomsk/Khomsk.html

JewishGen Offers Writing Short Reports in November #warsaw #poland

Writing Short Reports November 4-November 27

JewishGen will again offer a class in publishing your research. This
class concentrates on short reports. Time to get your data out of
the shoebox and arrange it in a summary report? A quick, short report
is great to send to relatives or other researchers and to remind you
just where your last project left off.

In this class we will practice writing 3 styles of reports: a list
style, a lineage style report and a longer Genealogical Summary Report.
The instructor will offer directions for using your genealogical
software "publishing features," organizing your files and folders,
citing your sources and making decisions about media snips and images.

Requirements: Students must have done enough research to be ready to
write. Students should have access to a genealogical software program.

Students must have 8-10 hours per week to study the assignments, write
their reports and interact with the instructor. To meet the needs of
international students this course is open 24/7.

Tuition is $125 for this 3 week class and includes editing suggestions
upon request. Enrollment is limited to 10 students.

enroll.
