Subject: [TexasCzechs] Digitlized Records in C. R.Dear Group,I attended Dr. Mirek Koudelka’s presentation in Caldwell on Saturday that was about how to use the digitalized online records. I do know that Internet Explorer doesn’t work well with these websites, so I am using Firefox.I am concentrating on the http://vychodoceskearchivy.cz/zamrsk/matriky records for North East Bohemia (my village is Horni Hermanice). I cannot get the page to operate like the way he showed us. I cannot get to a book icon to open up any records.I had a similar situation happen with a German online archives. The person I was corresponding with in Baden was able to send me copies of online records, but when I went to the same site, I could not navigate it the way he did.Am I missing some vital steps or do these websites work differently in Europe than here in the U.S.A.?Lastly, the L.D.S. church has put digitalized records from Zamrsk on its http://www.familysearch.org/ site. The webpage for the Zamrsk archives also gives a link to http://www.familysearch.org/. I assume that whatever records I am trying to find online from the Zamrsk site are the same as those on the http://www.familysearch.org/ site, so I am stressing over nothing. The LDS site is much easier to navigate.My question: If I only use the http://www.familysearch.org/ site, am I missing out on other digitalized records at the http://vychodoceskearchivy.cz/zamrsk/matriky site? Is it worth my time to try and figure out navigating the Zamrsk site?Mirek also told us that the Zamrsk archives have only digitalized 42% of the records, and the records are to be completed in 2015. However, the digitalization has stalled due to lack of funds.Truly,Marie Neuman Gray
I would use Google Chrome. It will translate Czech into English. And I have had no problems with it working with the Czech Archives.Sep 30 1 of 3View SourceI would use Google Chrome. It will translate Czech into English. And I have had no problems with it working with the Czech Archives.
