Endnu en god nyhed fra JewishGen – især for dem, der er interesseret i Polen:

Dear JewishGen Community,
We are pleased to announce a partnership between JewishGen.org and Dr. Dan Hirschberg, resulting in the Dr. Dan Hirschberg – Kraków Collection.

As a result of this agreement, records that have been transcribed and compiled by Dr. Hirschberg will be made freely available to JewishGen researchers.

All of the records are from Kraków, Poland (in the Austrian province of Galicia before WWI), including Kazimierz and Podgórze (today, districts of Kraków). Thus far, more than 160,000 records have been uploaded, which include census records, vital records, marriage intentions/banns records, along with progressive and religious marriage records.

Images of most of the records are available online, although search results do not currently link to the images. Prof. Hirschberg’s website (https://www.ics.uci.edu/~dan/genealogy/Krakow)  contains many images and links to images on other websites. Vital records can also be viewed on the Polish State Archives’ Search the Archives website (new: https://www.szukajwarchiwach.gov.pl/zespol/-/zespol/33389, old: https://szukajwarchiwach.pl/29/1472/0).

We would like to thank Dr. Dan Hirschberg for his monumental ongoing effort to transcribe and compile genealogical data about Kraków’s Jewish Community, and for his generosity in contributing this extraordinarily valuable collection to JewishGen.

Thanks also to the National Archives in Kraków for preserving the original records and making them available to the public.

The Dr. Dan Hirschberg – Kraków Collection can be searched via the JewishGen Unified Search (https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/all/) or the JewishGen Poland Collection (https://www.jewishgen.org/databases/Poland/).

NYT FRA JEWISHGEN

Dear JewishGen Community,

We are pleased to announce a partnership between JewishGen.org and Genie Milgrom, resulting in The Genie Milgrom Crypto Jewish Collection.

Up until now it has been extremely difficult for those trying to trace their ancestors dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries during the Inquisition, since  Jews were forced to convert, change their names, and assume Christian identities in order to save themselves from death sentences. Many of these Jews were exiled from Spain and later Portugal and scattered throughout Europe and Latin America.

In order to help the descendants of these “Crypto Jews” research their roots, Genie has spent years scouring the world for any old documents, dissertations, books, and records. In total, she has travelled to Europe and other countries more than 50 times on her quest.

Now, for the first time, all of the information she has compiled will be freely searchable via JewishGen – including extensive background information in both English and Spanish.

We would like to thank Genie Milgrom for her incredible efforts, and for her generosity in contributing this extraordinarily valuable collection to JewishGen.

The Genie Milgrom Crypto Jewish Collection can be searched by clicking here:

Tidligere JGS medlemmer husker måske mødet med Dr. Stephen P. Morse. Nu er der mulighed for at deltage i et online-møde, hvor han fortæller om slægtsforskning og DNA:

Don’t miss the next presentation in our series of JewishGen Talks webinars, with our speaker, Dr. Stephen P. Morse.

From DNA to Genetic Genealogy:
Everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask.
Wednesday, July 15, 2020
3:00 pm Eastern Time (New York)

The study of genetics that started with Gregor Mendel’s pea experiments in 1865 has now entered the genealogy field with Megan Smolenyak’s coining of the term “genetealogy” in 2000. To understand the genealogical aspects requires an understanding of some of the basic concepts.

This talk introduces genes, chromosomes, and DNA, and goes on to show how DNA is inherited. That knowledge of inheritance can be used for finding relatives you didn’t know you had, learning about your very distant ancestors and the route they traveled, and determining if you are a Jewish high priest (Kohan).

Examples presented include Genghis Khan’s legacy, the Thomas Jefferson affair, and the Anastasia mystery.

Stephen P. Morse is the creator of the award-winning One-Step Website https://stevemorse.org/; Recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies and the Award of Merit from the National Genealogical Society; Best known as the architect of the Intel 8086, which sparked the PC revolution 35 years ago.

Royal Air Force Museum har lanceret en ny hjemmeside: Casualty Forms hvor besøgende kan søge efter officerer fra Royal Flying Corps og Royal Air Force, der tjente på vestfronten og i Mellemøsten under den første verdenskrig.

Formularerne inkluderer information om ulykkesdetaljer, posteringer, ferieperioder, forfremmelser og dekorationer. Nogle kan også have oplysninger om begravelsessted o.l. 

For at markere hundredeårsdagen for den første verdenskrig og 100-årsdagen for dannelsen af ​​Royal Air Force i 2018 besluttede RAF-museet at påtage sig et projekt, der ville give større adgang til posterne. Der er omkring 25.000 formularer. Samlingen indeholder også oplysninger om canadiere og australiere.

Genskabelse digitalt irske arkiv der brændte brændte i 1922

I 1922 ødelagde en voldsom eksplosion det offentlige arkiv, der var knyttet til Dublins fire domstole, der indeholdt hundreder af års historie.
Blandt andet folketællingsprotokollerne for hele det 19. århundrede tilbage til 1821 brændte sammen med tusinder af testamenter m.m.m.

Et forskningsprojekt, Beyond 2022, Irlands Virtual Record Treasury, planlægger at genskabe så meget som muligt af arkivet i digitalt format til hundredeårsdagen for branden, den 30. juni 2022, så det kan blive tilgængeligt for alle.
