Poll: Have you discovered an ancestral home?

Poll: Have you discovered an ancestral home? | Slovenian Genealogy Research | Scoop.it

Census records are a fantastic tool.
However, the details in the records leave much to the imagination. That is - of course - until you investigate the address listed on the census entry.

My Heritage asks in the poll if you've visited any ancestral homes. Alternatively, you could leave a comment to the blog.

Razlog 5*: Evropski muzej strpnosti in človeškega dostojanstva

Razlog 5*: Evropski muzej strpnosti in človeškega dostojanstva | Slovenian Genealogy Research | Scoop.it

Reblogged from Knapco: European Museum of Tolerance and Human dignity

Ko sem jeseni pisala o pogumu in gorečnosti Johna (João Crisóstomo), večnega borca z razlogom, še nisem vedela, kako zelo se trudi za ohranitev in obnovo domačije nekdanjega portugalskega konzula Aristidesa de Souse Mendesa. Skupaj s konzulovim vnukom Carlosom de Sousa Mendesom sta bila aktivna pri fundaciji Fundação Aristides de Sousa Mendes, ki je pripravila razstavo, posnela film in imela v načrtu pred porušenjem rešiti konzulov dom ter ga dati v uporabo javnosti kot muzej strpnosti in človeškega dostojanstva (Museum of Tolerance and Human dignity), posvečenega vsem žrtvam inkvizicije, druge svetovne vojne, holokavsta in drugih nestrpnosti.

Več: Portuguese Times: Križarske vojne Johna Crisóstoma, butlerja aktivista iz New Yorka, 5.

P.S.: Ne poznava se, a v tej skupnosti sva kolega; če ti je tema zanimiva, jo morda kje uporabiš; želim pomagati prijatelju Portugalcu iz New Yorka, ki se trudi za plemenite cilje. John je bil med drugim butler Jackie Kennedy O. in z njo postal aktivist. Moj kontakt: Knapco.domain@gmail.com
