Timely information from a Jewish genealogy newsletter about the efforts
of the Italian Genealogy Group:

> ItalianGen: A Victim of Success
> If you have ancestors who lived in the New York area, you should be
> aware that the Italian Genealogy Group has indexed a number of very
> valuable record groups including:
> Naturalizations for Federal and Some State Courts
> New York City Groom and Bride's Indexes
> New York City Death Index
>
> The organization is running out of funds to pay for the incidental
> costs of doing new databases that are being worked on by volunteers.
> New material may be delayed until funds are raised. If you use these
> databases, I recommend you send a check for $25 payable to Italian
> Genealogical Group to John Martino; Project Coordinator; 49 Brookhill
> Lane; Huntington, NY 11743. While you have your checkbook out, if you
> have not done so already, write a check to JewishGen for $100 as your
> annual contribution. Send the check to JewishGen; Museum of Jewish
> Heritage; 36 Battery Place; New York, NY 10280
