Re: Too many DJVU file failures...

Hello, Bob, Please share a few links where you are having problems, and I will try to investigate. Since I do not make the .DjVu files or viewers, there might not be much I can do, though. As for many sites serving invalid files, most of the Polish sites use the same digital library management softw...

French directories

Long overdue post: many French directories can be searched at http://gallica.bnf.fr. I will gradually add some to Genealogy Indexer (see http://genealogyindexer.org/directories#France), so we can use advanced search functionality, but cannot add all due to the poor quality of some of the images.

Re: name Baluk Bałuk

Two searches that might help, although these results will be also included in a search just for baluk: 1) baluk myslenice This will find any page that contains both words. For example, the first match is from the 1938 Economic Directory of Kielce, Krakow, and Silesia Provinces and shows a Bałuk St. ...

Re: Arkin (Orkin) from Lekava or Veger (Vegeryay)

If you change the Any Place option below the search box to Lithuania and search for Arkin, you will find an Isaak-Albert Yudelevitch Arkin in Kovno Gubernia, but with no stated connection to either town you mentioned. If you change Any Place to Multinational, you will find hits in directories coveri...

Re: Looking for Gr.father's Family: SCHOENBACH

To clarify, ö and o are treated the same as each other, oe is treated differently. The reason is that, if a search term contains oe, I cannot automatically know whether it is German or not. If not, and I treat it the same as o, there might be false positives in the search results.

Re: Looking for Gr.father's Family: SCHOENBACH

If you search here for schönbach ustrzyki , with no quotes, you will find pages that contain both words (surrounding with quotes would do a phrase search, which is not what you want). Many of the results are for Schönbachs in Ustrzyki Dolne sections of directories. For example, the first match is fr...

1939 Lithuania Telephone Directory

Since the 1939 Lithuania Telephone Directory is organized by locality, if you are only interested in a few small places, you might prefer to manually search those places' entries, rather than rely on the full-text search across the entire directory, which is not 100% accurate (due to OCR inaccuracie...

Re: 1909 Warsaw Business and Address Directory

Thanks for notifying me, Sharon. I will try to fix this error, which does not affect the entire directory (I try to check for such errors, but it's hard to catch them all). As for a list of occupation abbreviations, I'd be happy to post it if someone else would create it. Transcribing headings would...

1930 Warsaw Address, Business, and Homeowners Directory

While mostly an address and business directory, this book contains a homeowners list beginning on image 212: http://genealogyindexer.org/frame/d219/212/d . By paging forward until you reach a street of interest, which should appear alphabetically, you can find the names of the owners of the building...
