To address the need, federal funding, administered by the Public Health Service, began flowing to nursing schools in 1942, and in 1943 Congress authorized the Cadet Nurse Corps. The Corps offered scholarships for tuition and fees, stipends, and uniforms to women ages 17–35 who went to nursing school and committed to serve in the nursing profession for the duration of the war. The Corps did not discriminate on race and graduated almost 125,000 nurses....

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).
