Brother's Keeper #general

Eve Line Blum <blume@...>
 

Is there anybody who could help us with the Brother's keeper software : we
received a GEDCOM disk, but it's very difficult for us to use it with BK.
We just got a message saying that BK can't read that disk. We succeeded
with another software (Heredis), but the result is not so good, and we
would be very glad to know how to succeed with Brother's keeper.

Please answer privately on my email.

Many thanks in advance.

SSDI Payment #general

David Gershon Leventhal <David_Gershon@...>
 

Hello all,

I wrote to the SSDI back in June, requesting information on
someone. I provided the SS#, etc., but following
instructions I received >from other people, and the JGen FAQ,
I did not send any money. Sometime during the summer, I got
a letter claiming that I need to pay in advance, and not
with a cheque or money, but with a credit card. Is that
normal? Did they just change their policy? Anyone who has
successfully gotten info in the past half-year, please let
me know how it worked with you.

Thanks,

German Birth Certificate footnote #general

Gary Luke <feraltek@...>
 

We received the German birth certificates of a few children of one family
which all have added information at the bottom about their deaths. The
details include exact date, the suburb in Sydney, and the Australian death
certificate reference number. It looks like there could be some sort of
agreement between Australia Germany to advise the their registry on the
death of any of its previous citizens.

One example -
born in Zulpich in 1901,
migrated to Australia in 1937,
naturalized in 1944,
died in 1979 - shows suburb, country, date, and ref no.

Has anyone else come across this? It could be related to a pension
agreement between Australia and Germany. And what paper trail did they
follow to match one reference against another, 80 years later and countries
apart.

Social Security Death Index #general

Alan H. Rosen
 

I have just noticed a new feature of the SSDI search on
http://ssdi.ancestry.com. There is a choice to print a letter requesting
the SS-5. It has a different address than the one I have used in the past.
Is there a difference? Will I get the desired data faster? Has anyone
used these pre-fab letters?

New Address:

Social Security Administration
Office of Central Records Operations
FOIA Workgroup
P.O. Box 17772
300 N. Greene Street
Baltimore, Maryland 21290


Old Address:

Social Security Administration
Freedom of Information Officer
4H8 Annex Building
6401 Security Blvd.
Baltimore, Maryland 21235

The letter also has some rather forceful rhetoric:


Dear Freedom of Information Officer,

I am writing this request under the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C.
Section 552. I hereby request the Social Security File (including the SS-5,
Application for Social Security Card) for the following individual:

DOE, JOHN
000-00-0000
Birth:
Death:

This individual is deceased, having been listed in the Social Security
Administration's Death Master File. I understand the fee for this service
is $7.00 when the Social Security Number is provided. Included is a check
for $______ made out to the Social Security Administration to cover any
administrative costs required by this request.

Barring "unusual circumstances," please respond to my request within ten
working days of the receipt of this initial correspondence. Thank you for
your attention and assistance.

Sincerely,

New Improved "Cut and Paste" Method #general

Ruffin R Cooper <rrcooper@...>
 

Thanks to Renee and Menno Nykerk I can post a revised method to
allow you to "Cut and Paste" individual messages >from the Digest.
For those of us who prefer the digest form (not everyone) to
reduce the large number of "snowflakes", the ability to select
out individual text to save in a mail folder is very useful.
Renee's and Menno's simplification (reduces 4 steps to 2 steps)
is included in a representation of the "Cut and Paste" method as
follows:

1- Highlight the portion of the text that you want to select out
for saving by using the left button of your mouse (for most
mouses, or is it mice!)

2- Right click the button on your mouse and left click on "Copy"
in the "pop-up" window.

3- Click on "Compose Message" or "New Message" which ever is
required by your mail program.

4- Enter your e-mail address in the "TO" line and a subject if
your mail program requires one.

5- Right click in the text area of the new message and left click
on "Paste" in the "pop-up" window.

6- Click on "Send" or your equivalent and the selected text will
"loop-back" through your ISP to you quickly.

7- Now you have a choice (a)- copy/move the selected message from
your "Sent Items" folder to another folder of your choice or;
(b)- await the arrival of the "loop-back" message and "Copy/Move"
that to its chosen destination. You can also use the
"drag-and-drop" feature to move the text if you prefer, and it is
available in your mail program.

Take a test! Edit out this message >from the digest and save it to
one of your "mail" folders using the method described above! Then
you will have the chance to test this method, and also save a
copy for future reference.
