CHURCH RECORDS FROM 1850-1900
László Rudolf is encouraged by developments in Yugoslavia. The Bela Crkva archives have acquired the ability to copy the church books to CD. They are currently undergoing renovations, but should begin copying in October. He is confident we will have our CD by the end of the year! I am not quite that confident, but it looks like we are making progress.While awaiting these developments, László has not been idle. He has photographed the tombstones in Zichydorf cemetery and the church books (approx. 1900-1950) in Ürményháza parish. These are the same books that we have in hard copy in the SGS library that we were planning to digitize. We will obtain these CDs in the coming weeks and copy them for distribution to those who have contributed to the camera and CD project. To contain the substantial postage costs, my intention is to not distribute these until the picture is more clear regarding the Bela Crkva archives. If we can obtain these records by the end of the year, we will consolidate all the CDs into one package for mailing. Anyone who has not yet joined the CD project may do so for $30.
NEW AT THE LIBRARY AND ON THE WEB
I have just learned that the latest book in the Stader Sammelwerk series, Volume VI “P-Scha”, is available. We will obtain this book as quickly as possible.
