Subject: Poznan Project Newsletter Sep-Oct 2006
Dear Poznan Project Friends,
I was asked by some to write the Newsletter on a regular basis (I hope
one such Newsletter every 2 months would not be too much bothering) to
report what parishes have been added or if there have been any new
features added etc.
In short, these are the newest modifications:
* The total number of marriages in the database now amounts to 72,251
which has thus exceeded 10% of the estimated number of all marriages
contracted in the Poznan/Posen province in 1835-1884 !!!
64 Catholic parishes and 11 Lutheran communities are represented.
You are encouraged to retry your searches using the extended contents.
* Polish characters and German umlauts have been added to the database
search utility. As the majority of the records still do not include them
(these were ignored at transcription usually), the rule is that such
characters are treated as equivalent to their "Latin" counterparts in the
search process. But they will be accepted in the forms and also displayed
in the results wherever present.
* As the database is growing, the maximum number of 50 results per search
are displayed now (instead of 30).
* The description of the project has been slightly refreshed.
* And here come the parishes added to the database since Sep. 1:
Catholic: Bydgoszcz, Debnica (near Gniezno), Sokolniki (near Gniezno),
Skoraszewice, Góra near Inowroclaw, Ostrowo near Pakosc, Trzcinica,
Choryn, Poznan - St. Martin parish, Strzelno, Szamotuly,
Podlesie Koscielne, Brenno, Góra near Znin, Serock, Lopienno
Here is the address for the Project site in case someone has not
yet bookmarked it:
As always, I am thankful to all of you who have submitted the transcribed
marriages and/or declared donations.
