(12 January 1999)
Since late July 1998 the webmaster has been mostly off the net/WWW while moving the FEEFHS office of the President/Webmaster from California to Salt Lake City, Utah. Recovery from unplanned surgery in November and an auto accident in December caused this offline transition to be extended well beyond the intended time period. Also during the week before Christmas, our SUN webserver went offline due to a power supply failure in the backup hard drive. It was repaired and returned to service Christmas eve morning. The website is now being maintained on a regular basis from Salt Lake City, crossroads of the west.

Please address all postal correspondence to the President or Webmaster to P. O. Box 510898, Salt Lake City Utah 84151-0898. Our eMail address remains the same - feefhs@feefhs.org

If your organization or professional web page needs updating, please advise the webmaster using the words "Web Page Update" in your email subject line to be sure it receives prompt attention. While priority is being given to such updates, the research list postings will be resumed ASAP. Also to be resumed shortly will be the the Significant Additions List. During this last six months there have been some additions - the 1998 Die Vorfahren database was updated and the 1889 San Francisco Call database was added. The additions amounted to about 3 Megs, 150+ pages and 3,000 more website index words. Thanks for your patience.

Recently your webmaster discovered the existence of "Familiennamen" for most pedigress in the microfilm operator reports for Tiel II of Die Ahnenstammkartei. These primary surnames have been added to the list of AL number/microfilm numbers already posted on this web site. These 13 "AL" pages are still marked as drafts and thus not complete. However at least 80% of the 11,300+ "AL" pedegrees are now listed with their primary surname, AL number and microfilm number - the first such index has ever been available for Die Ahnenstammkartei microfilm collection.

To use these contents, just type your surnames into the Website index above one by one. To see the pages, open Teil II Index and goto one of the AL number lists. Die Ahnenstammkartei indexing projects with our volunteers are importnat and will be resumed ASAP.

The following has been posted on the SAXRL (Saxony Germany Research List):
***Special Notice***: FEEFHS is seeking your assistance to index microfilm that may help you in your Saxony ancestral search. Since it has proven impossible to obtain approval to microfilm Saxony church records, over 20,000 reels of Saxony court records have been recently microfilmed in the 313 "Amt's" (judicial districts) of Saxony. Most of these Saxony court records have indexes ... but they need to be computerized to be of any use to anyone. If you know the Saxony village or city location of an ancestor, we can point you to the court films that need to be searched, but only if you will agree to help FEEFHS in return by indexing the Saxony surnames on the microfilm reel you search. We want to eventually post all the Saxony court record indexes on this web site. If you are seriously interested, contact the FEEFHS Webmaster with the name of the Saxony village or location and approximate dates of interest. "A trip of a thousand miles begins with the first step".
