Save the US Social Security Death Index: Why and how to help

Save the US Social Security Death Index: Why and how to help | Slovenian Genealogy Research | Scoop.it

MyHeritage Blog: Stop ID Theft NOW! Sign a petition by 8th of March.

 

The SSDI is accessed by many companies, non-profits and other entities, in addition to family history researchers. Forensic specialists use it when reuniting remains of military veterans with next-of-kin and descendants. Law offices, banks and insurance companies use it to resolve probate cases and to locate heirs. All these entities would have to spend more money and time accessing other information resources when the SSDI has served this purpose for more than 10 years.

 

The House Ways and Means Committee Subcommittee on Social Security is proposing to completely shut down use of the SSDI by genealogists as well as other industries such as banking and insurance that rely upon its information. Such an attempt is short-sighted and runs counter to the original purpose of the SSDI: to actually combat fraud.

 

The Records Preservation & Access Committee (RPAC) is a joint coalition of international genealogical societies representing millions of genealogists and family historians, and just announced the launch of its Stop ID Theft NOW! campaign with its We The People petition posted at WhiteHouse.gov. Here’s the petition. To sign the petition, read the instructions.

On-line queries in Slovenian Archive: ARS database

On-line queries in Slovenian Archive: ARS database | Slovenian Genealogy Research | Scoop.it

The Archive of the Republic of Slovenia has enabled online queries: simple full text search, field search, archive plan or descriptor search for different fields of documentary stock. Genealogy researchers are usually interested in history of land cadastral units on the territory of Slovenia. For example: a stock for Štajerska region in the period 1784-1790 (SI AS 1110 Jožefinski kataster za Štajersko, 1784-1790) or Koroška region (SI AS 1111 Jožefinski kataster za Koroško, 1784-1790), etc.

 

“Jožefinski kataster” is the first almost complete register of land units in the Slovenian territory, prepared by a territorial principle of tax or cadastral units. Land parcels were measured and registered in all provinces of Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. The language of the register is German. Together with the earlier Theresian register and later cadastral registers they can be used as a primary source for a period of few centuries.

 

Online search with more interface languages (Dutch, English, French, German and Italian) is offered by SIRAnet. The use of archive's material is organised at regional level (Contact information).
