I would amend all of the above to say: “What have you done? You have changed something that was really good and informative to something that is totally a mess. I subscribed to this for years and found it very helpful; it is totally useless now. Go back to the original format. Change is not always good.”

Personally, I’m a big fan of Reunion which I’ve been using for several years and is regularly updated. It also has an app version called ReunionTouch which can be installed on iPhones and iPads which means I always have my family tree with me. I can update it on the spot and it syncs with all my devices.

I am looking for a program for the Mac. Has anyone used Roots Magic? Can anyone recommend one to me? Thanks

Abraham,
I think the issue Barbara was referencing is that the original post is not appearing in the digest. Although it appears if someone wants to comment on a reply, it is totally impractical to open a reply window just to see the original message.

This is confusing.
It was better before.
I prefer the separate sig groups.
What have you done??
If it’s not broken don’t fix it.

This is interesting: On Windows 10, Edge does not give the correct right to left direction for this Hebrew text.
Google chrome does (for me - I haven't checked settings).

How to see messages in a topic before composing a reply #austria-czech

Odeda Zlotnick
 

Underneath the message in the digest, however you get it,  you have a link to "view/reply online"

If you click on the "View/Reply Online" you may have to login. But, having done that, you have the message and the reply form open, and under the reply form,  you have  "see all X messages in topic".  Click that and you see all of them - very
convenient.

Re: about translation button [subjec used to be "Question']

Copying the header with the email should not cause problems in getting the Hebrew translated

I also would like a translate button if people post in multiple languages.  I tried to copy and paste the Hebrew, but could not get all the Hebrew selected without having the header selected also.

Re: Finding relatives #hungary

Ron Hoenig
 

I have lots of Bihari relatives in Australia. They  descend from  Marton Beckmann.(B.1899), who married my great aunt Rosalia Honig and changed his name to Bihari or Bihary (not sure when). Tibor Bihary was the paterfamilias (1914-1971). His descendants live mainly in Melbourne in Victoria.

Is that a help?

Hello

I wonder if anyone recognises people in this group photo taken at a well-known lake in modern day Slovakia? My father and sister (Ropschitz, Lvov) are recognisable to me but as it's such a great photo and so many faces are clear, I thought I would share it. 

I have another photo taken in a cafe in the same region I believe which I will also attach for the same reason.
Kind regards, Yolanda, Somerset, England

Re: dual citizenship #austria-czech

Ron Hoenig
 

I would like to make an ironic aside note. One of the disadvantages of the move
by the Austrian government is that: should an Australian descendant of Austrian
holocaust survivors take up the offer, that person would be prevented >from
becoming a member of Australia's parliament. Australian politics has been
devastated by a section of the Australian constitution that decrees that no
person with dual citizenship - or even eligibility for such citizenship - may
stand as a candidate for election to such a high office. The current Treasurer
of the country, the descendant of a Hungarian Jewish Refugees is currently
fighting to prove that he is not a dual citizen because of a similar move by
the current authoritarian - and some would say - antisemitic Hungarian
government to restore similar citizenship to the descendants of victims of
the Hungarian holocaust. DespIte the fact that an increasingly large proportion
of Australia's population either has or is eligible for citizenship in two or more
countries, the nation's highest court has ruled that the clause in the constitution
which was. Legislated in the early 20th century, when the nation was proudly and
avowedly racist, has firmly ruled that its leading politicians must divest themselves
of such dual citizenship at profound financial cost. As a result, a growing proportion
of the country's population is ruled out of contesting the nation's highest office.

Whatever one's views of the generosity of the Austrian Government in making this
offer, anyone of my readers should consider the fact that it would mean certain
death to a elevated political career in Australia!!!

Austrian citizenship #austria-czech

Eva Lawrence
 

One advantage of possessing Austrian citizenship is that you have free
access to the whole of the European Union without any restrictions which
may be placed on non-citizens such as perhaps needing a visa to settle
there or purchase land.
It may however also involve duties, including liability to military
service.
