 06/17/2017  Update: JewishGen Sub-Carpathia SIG

Dear Friends,

This has been an exciting few weeks for JewishGen's Sub-Carpathian
SIG. Not only do we have a newly-updated website, but we have
uploaded another batch of records onto JewishGen for your searching
pleasure. (If this excites you, see below for how you can financially
contribute to our SIG. It'll ensure we can continue getting these
records for you.) Details on both of these are below. In addition,
we are preparing for the Sub-Carpathia SIG meeting at the IAJGS
conference--if you'll be in Orlando for the conference, come for a
full update on the SIG on Monday, July 24 at 5PM.

Check out our website at http://www.jewishgen.org/Sub-Carpathia/ and
explore what is there. We will be adding additional information, and
we welcome your material for the webpage--trip reports, photos, and
more would be appreciated. You'll notice that you can drill down to
the town level, and information we have on that specific town will be
displayed. If your town(s) of interest do not yet have a Town Leader,
please step up! In addition, if you want to coordinate Town Leaders
across the SIG, please contact me as well.

As mentioned above, we have just uploaded another batch of transcribed
records to JewishGen, and I am pleased to report that we now have a
total of 17,580 Jewish records from 182 books searchable on JewishGen
through both the Hungary and Ukraine databases. Additional records
have been transcribed as well, and more are being transcribed every
day.

These records were written in Hungarian between 1895-1919, and then in
Slovak until 1939. After that point, they were written in Ruthenian
(written in the Cyrillic alphabet) for several months, before
switching back to Hungarian. In addition, some of the towns also had
random periods of Ruthenian-language entries during the Slovak era.

We are grateful to everyone who has participated thus far by
supporting the project financially, but there is much more work to be
done, and we need your help to continue. Our goal is to index the
approximately 3000 available Civil Registration Books, and then to
work on obtaining and indexing census records.

If you are in a position to do so, please consider making a financial
contribution to the JewishGen Sub-Carpathian SIG today. As a special
incentive, those who contribute $180 or more will receive access to
information before it is made publically available on the JewishGen
databases. Tax deductible donations can be easily submitted via the
following methods:

- Our Secure Website:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=50

- PayPal: http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/Sub-Carpathia.asp

Please note that this project covers those parts of the former
Maramaros, Bereg, Ugocsa and Ung megyes that are currently in Ukraine.
At this point we have indexed books covering towns in each of the
former Maramaros, Bereg and Ugocsa megyes, with more coverage coming
of additional towns in those megyes as well as Ung as we get
additional books copied.

For a more detailed summary of what is now online, please click here:

Thank you to the many volunteer indexers and financial donors who have
made all of this possible.

Looking forward to continuing to work on behalf of Sub-Carpathian researchers -

 03/18/2017  Subcarpathian Records on JewishGen!

Dear Friends,

As you know, the JewishGen Sub-Carpathian SIG
(www.JewishGen.org/Sub-Carpathia) was re-instituted this past summer.
We focused our initial efforts on indexing Jewish vital records from
more than 229 Civil Registration Books, and I am pleased to report
that the first batch of information, totaling 12,365 records from 115
books (spanning the years 1895-1940) is now searchable on JewishGen
from both the Ukraine and Hungarian databases!

These records were written in Hungarian between 1895-1919, and then in
Slovak until 1939. After that point, they were written in Ruthenian
(written in the Cyrillic alphabet) for several months, before
switching back to Hungarian. In addition, some of the towns also had
random periods of Ruthenian-language entries during the Slovak era.

We are grateful to everyone who has participated thus far by
supporting the project financially, but there is much more work to be
done, and we need your help to continue.

Many people might not be aware of this, but there are nearly 3,000
record books in existence. Without JewishGen, the information
contained in these books will likely remain inaccessible for the
overwhelming majority of researchers. Our goal is to index these
available Civil Registration Books, and then to work on obtaining and
indexing census records.

If you are in a position to do so, please consider making a financial
contribution to the JewishGen Sub-Carpathian SIG today. As a special
incentive, those who contribute $180 or more will receive access to
information before it is made publically available on the JewishGen
databases. Tax deductible donations can be easily submitted via the
following methods:

Maramaros, Bereg, Ugocsa and Ung megyes that are currently in Ukraine.

 12/11/2016  Subcarpathia SIG Update & End-of-year Donation Request

Fellow Subcarpathian Researchers,

I'm pleased to inform you that due to the donations we have so far and
volunteer transcribers, we have made progress in acquiring and
transcribing records from what's now Subcarpathian Ukraine.

So far, we have 137 record books of which:

87 record books have been fully transcribed
19 books are in the process of being transcribed by volunteers
31 books (and counting) are awaiting assignment to a volunteer

8395 Jewish vital records were in those 87 books--most of which
contain multiple names.

While this is a great start, it looks like there are nearly 3000 (yes,
3000!) record books available for us, covering essentially *every* town
in Subcarpathian Ukraine. We are still getting more books each week,
but we'll run out of funds well before acquiring all 3000 of those
books.

We could greatly use your donation (and it's tax-deductible for those
of you in the US--so donate now for a 2016 deduction!) to enable us to
get all of these books copied and eventually transcribed. Donations
of $100 and above get you access to transcriptions as they are
finished as well as the frequently-updated list of what we have,
although larger donations are very much welcome. Donations can be
made to the Sub-Carpathia SIG General Fund here:
http://www.jewishgen.org/JewishGen-erosity/v_projectslist.asp?project_cat=50.

We can also use additional transcribers to help work through the books
as they're received. If you can read English, you can read these
documents. I will send you instructions which explain what the
various fields are, and the names in Hungarian or Czech (depending on
the year) are in Latin (the same as English) characters. Please let
me know if you're interested. In addition, once you have transcribed
500 records, you also gain access to all transcriptions as they are
finished.

I could also use a volunteer webmaster to help update the SIG's
webpage. If you have webmaster experience, please contact me.

We may not have your town yet, but we will. Please don't bombard me
with emails me to find out what towns we have; it's constantly
changing, and we're working to get all of them. And many record books
cover multiple towns, so until they're transcribed, we won't know
exactly which towns are in which record books.
