Maine Bill LD 1627 #general

Jan Meisels Allen
 

Last year Maine enacted Public Law 58
(http://www.mainelegislature.org/legis/bills/getDOC.asp?id=4113) addressing
who can access birth, marriage and death records and allows genealogists to
obtain a researcher card --for a fee --so they do not have to wait to
75-50-50 years to obtain the records. Marriage applications were not
included in this bill. The Maine Department of Health and Human Services
had a bill introduced this year that addressed marriage applications: LD
1627 see: http://tinyurl.com/7hns48d
original url:
http://www.mainelegislature.org/legis/bills/getPDF.asp?paper=SP0537&item=1&snum=125

Currently, there is no similar provision for genealogists and obtaining the
researcher card or amending last year's bill to add marriage applications
into the existing statute.

A hearing has been scheduled by the Joint Standing Committee on Health and
Human Services (http://www.maine.gov/legis/house/jt_com/hum.htm) for LD
1627 "An Act Regarding the Filing of Birth, Death and Marriage Data"
Thursday, Jan 26 2012 1:00PM, Room 209, Cross State Office Building in
Augusta, Maine.

As more information becomes available, it will be posted to this forum.

name on Ellis Island website #general

Florette Lynn <ivenets@...>
 

Thanks to the many "Genners" who helped me and found the ship's
manifest for me. The Steve Morse website was the best and her last
name was spelled with an A instead of O.
So thanks to all and variant spelling are very important.

Re: searching for name in Ellis Island Website #general

In her posting of January 10, Lynn Florette wrote of difficulty in
finding on the Ellis Island web site a record for Mirke Oscherovitz,
even though she has other identifying documentation, including
naturalization records and a Certificate of Arrival.
I find that it's often better to use the Steve Morse website
(www.stevenmorse.org) as a gateway to the Ellis Island site, as it has
more search options. Thus, using Steve Morse's Gold Form for NY
arrivals, typing only the surname "Oscherovitz" using the "sounds as"
option, and the name of the vessel (Vaderland), produces an index
listing which includes an entry for Mirke Ascherowitz, age 21, who
arrived at NY >from Antwerp on the Vaderland on 4 June 1912. Going to
the "scanned manifest" for that entry reveals that, on the manifest,
the surname was spelled "Oscherowitz", but was apparently read by the
Steve Morse indexer as "Ascherowitz". This shows the value of using
the "sounds as" option on the Morse web site.
One further point about the Morse web site (which is no doubt well
familiar to users of the site) is that the site divides manifest
pages into two halves, and gives each half as a separate image. The
halves are often reversed. For example, clicking on the "scanned
manifest" link for Mirke Ascherowitz brings up the second half of the
relevant manifest page (indicated as page no. 61). To get to the
first half of the page (indicated as page 62), Lynn should click on
"next, not "previous".

Kiev Regional Archives - Success! #general

Julia Lombardo <julialombardo@...>
 

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to share my experience with the Kiev Regional Archives.
My great-grandmother's family (DUBINSKIY and BORODKIN/BRODKIN) were
living in Trilesy, in Kiev gubernya.
I found out that the All-Russian Census for 1897 contained entries >from
Trilesy!

I emailed the Kiev Regional Archives, asking for extractions of the
DUBINSKIY and BRODKIN families.
I received a letter via "snail mail", with the price for my request, and
a form to fill out and sign.
You have to pay about $70 per each family name being searched,
regardless of whether they find anything or not.

Long story short, I got my answer! I only got the DUBINSKIY part, for
some reason no BORODKINs were found.
I am still happy!

Thanks for letting me share!

On Certificate of Arrival her name was Mirke Oscherovitz and on the

have searched the Ellis Island website, both by her name and by ship's
