PhD Research: request for photographs #austria-czech

jonikapl@...
 

Dear members of the Austria-Czech SIG,

I am a first year PhD student at the University of Technology, Sydney
(Australia). My research focuses on the social, sartorial and
aesthetic role of Jewish men in Vienna (also inclusive of other towns
in cities in the former Austro-Hungarian Empire) during the late
nineteenth and early twentieth centuries (roughly 1890-1930).

I am currently looking to create a digital database of photographs and
ephemera >from this era for my research. I would be extremely grateful
if any members of the Austria-Czech SIG have family photographs etc.
that they would be willing to share with me for my research.

Kind regards,

Jonathan Kaplan,
Sydney, Australia

(US-KS) More on Proposed Rule 106 and Rule 108 (marriage record access) #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

The Kansas Supreme Court has further proposed amending Rule 106-but retained
proposed redactions and having a "limited marriage record" for public access.
The full marriage record would be closed to the public and "existing marriage
licenses" may be closed or redacted for the public. The changes will also establish
criteria all district courts will follow when handling documents used to apply for
a marriage license, as well as the license itself. They are also proposing an
amended Rule 108 adding to establish standards for how district courts will handle
the confidential cover sheet and uniform marriage license application, including
destruction or maintenance of marriage records. Information regarding the notice of
proposed rule-making may be found at: http://tinyurl.com/o5ptspp
Original url:
http://www.kscourts.org/Kansas-Courts/General-Information/News-Releases.asp#071015

The wording of the proposed rules changes may be found at:
http://tinyurl.com/ob6gsft
Original url:

http://www.kscourts.org/rules/Proposed_or_Amended_Rules_Open_for_Public_Comment/default.asp

The notice states there will be no effect on how the Kansas Department of Health
and Environment manages vital records under the Uniform Vital Statistics Act. This
was one of the issues of concern that IAJGS commented upon in our statement for the
earlier notice of proposed rule-making.

History
In March I posted to this discussion list about the Kansas Supreme Court regarding
proposed changes to Supreme Court Rule 106. The proposed changes would restrict
marriage records to attorneys, court officers, the Kansas Department of Health and
Environment and to the person to whom the marriage license was issued. The
"rationale" behind this proposal is to clarify treatment of personally identifiable
information in marriage licensing documents maintained by the district courts. The
previous postings on proposals to amend rule 106 may be found in the IAJGS
Records access alert Archives (see below).

Kansas district courts would be required to make publically available a "limited
marriage record" as prescribed by the Judicial Administrator-but would redact the
following personal information >from the record:
. An applicant's Social Security Number
. An applicant's date of city of birth
. An applicant's mother's maiden name or
. Any information designated as confidential by the Kansas Department of
Health and Environment.

While the proposed rule was supposed to become effective on June 1, 2015,instead
they have come forth with the additional proposed changes and a new proposed rule-
making with a deadline of August 9.
