Pommernkontakte - the researchers contact database for Pommern
News & History
The number of Pommernkontakte members raised to 6,000. The increase slows down a bit but the information density gets higher and therefore still many members find new and helpfull contacts.
Already 5,000 family researchers have submitted to the database where their Pomeranian ancestors lived. Now these people can be found by other visitors of Pommernkontakte and a contact can be established via e-mail.
The number of Pomeranian genealogists contributing to the database increased now to 4,000. The information density of surnames is increasing too and for lots of surnames concentrations in certain areas of Pommern can be observed.
The growth of the database and participation of the genealogists is not ending. Until now 3,000 genealogists have contributed their ancestral names and villages in Pommern into the database. The number of helpfull contacts among the submitters is increasing.
By now already over 2000 pomeranian genealogists have contributed to the contact database within just 21 months. The number of contacts is immense -- only the database contains over 500 completly matching records from different submitters.
The database technique was changed. As a result of this the submitted data can be searched and found immediately and a soundex like search for family names is possible.
The Pommernkontakte have exceeded the number of 1,000 participants!
It is now possible to search through the Pommernkontakte and the Mecklenburgkontakte together, that means on every page both databases are available.
A cooperation with the Club for Mecklenburg history of families and individuals e.V. (MFP) is now available, specifically with the second chaiman Dieter Garling, who administers a similar contact database for Mecklenburg.
The Pommernkontakte received now an easy to remember address: http://pommernkontakte.de. We would greatly appreciate if you would change the links to your web pages over to the new address.
On January 4th the German version and on January 24th the English version of the database Pommernkontakte begins on my webpages, so that now all Pomeranian family researchers the world over can participate by way of an submission form and can search the database.
