One-Step 1950 Census Locational Tool Project #general

Joel Weintraub
 

Opening up of the One-Step 1950 Census Locational Tool Project

We have opened up "Project 1950" to prepare searchable ED definitions and street
indexes for the opening of the 1950 Census in 2022. With the help of about 125
volunteers we produced our 1940 tools. We are now doing the same thing for 1950 in
two phases - - Phase I involves the transcription of the ED definitions, and Phase
II involves creating urban area street indexes. An explanation of the two Phases
and what we are doing can be found at:
http://www.stevemorse.org/census/project1950intro.html. It may seem too early to
be doing this, but it took us over 7 years to produce the 1940 tools that were used
by the National Archives, the NY Public Library, Ancestry.com, and millions of
researchers.

direction, I am starting again my researches.

specially about relatives or siblings.

Anything related to :

married on 08.02.1851 Ita Obebaum (or Obsbaum) born 1835 in Zwolen daughter of

Chinda born 11-23.03.1880 in Radom.
(they may have had other children called Aleksander, Salomon and Lisa)

Perla might have married a Ajzyk Kirszberg in Radom.

Refugees from Dzhambul - look in JDC Archives #general

Eugene Goryunov asked about records for refugees to Dzhambul (now Taraz). I highly
recommend that he look in the JDC Archives at http://archives.jdc.org/. I'm a
volunteer at JDC and we indexed a huge set of records of Jews who fled east during
World War II and sought help >from the JDC. You can search by name and/or location.

BTW, the JDC Archives are constantly being updated, so keep looking. As the
volunteers index records, they are added to the Archives.
