Master Pedigree and Lublin Database Updates
The Master Pedigree Database (MPD) has just been updated again. It now contains 522,845 names with some additions and merges but the main change has been correcting locations. The Lublin Database has been updated on July 20, 2016 and is almost complete. This latest update increased the size of the database by 30% bringing the number of independent records to over 135,000, although many are replicates because of different forms and duplicates of the same records.


June 2016 Journal
In this issue of the SGGEE Journal, you’ll find Part 1 of Bill Remus’ article entitled “A Short Guide to Catholic and Lutheran Birth Records of Germans in Poland and the Ukraine”. In this article, Bill explains the history of the region and its impact on your ability to find records of your ancestors. Gary Warner, who manages the SGGEE databases, provides the results of a merge done with the Master Pedigree Database (MPD) done on Amanda Keinlen’s behalf and the information that was returned to her. The cover of this quarter’s Journal is one of the pictures from the Ernst Stewner calendar project. The details of purchase of the calendars is provided in the Editor’s Notes on Page 3. The financial results of the 2015/2016 financial reporting period are provided for your review prior to the Annual General Meeting being held in Calgary from July 29 – 31.
