Re: Transliteration Latin -> Cyrillic

The Latin -> Cyrillic transliteration option now works for Serbian Cyrillic, too. So, if you enter search terms with Serbian Latin letters (with or without diacritics), this option will automatically find matches spelled in the Serbian Cyrillic alphabet.

There is a major new feature at Genealogy Indexer: saved searches. Suppose you have 100 searches of interest, maybe one for each surname on your family tree, and you want to know when new sources were added to Genealogy Indexer that match those 100 searches. Before saved searches, you would have to ...

Transliteration Latin -> Hebrew

There is a new way to search Hebrew and Yiddish sources, such as yizkor books. It has always been possible to enter Hebrew letters directly, either via your own keyboard or by clicking the keyboard icon to the left of the search box. However, that required that you knew how to spell your search term...

Krakow Census 1880 online (instructions)

About two-thirds of the Krakow Census of 1880 is now viewable online for free, with (handwritten) name indices, thanks to Poland's National Archives in Krakow and National Digital Archives. I do not know whether the rest will be similarly available. I do not have time now to provide detailed instruc...

Re: Jancety Pietrzyk

If you are searching here, you will probably be more successful searching by surname only and then examining matches, since many will include only a first initial, not the full given name.

Re: testimonial of Elsa

Thank you for your offer, but we only index typewritten sources to which OCR can be applied. If your source is of general genealogical interest (i.e., relevant to many families besides yours) but needs to be transcribed, you should contact a relevant genealogy society.
