So I am struggling with this one a lot. I was given a link to a database with to access Lutheran records in Lithuania. The records are kept at the archive there and I used to purchase copies from there until the President of IAGL Online indexing told me of their having digitized and indexed a large amount of records. So the records were at the parish, went to the archives, and then digitized. Many have been indexed but not all. To add to that, Owen McCafferty, IAGL's president, referred me to a translator in Poland who did both full translations and extracts of the documents I requested help with. I am struggling with how to cite these.
Here is a link to one that is indexed: https://index.germansfromlithuania.org/records/birth/51112
Here is the information I have for a citation for this one:
- Citation: August Reinert Birth Record: 1894. “Skan - Szukaj W Archiwach.” Przejdź do Szukaj w Archiwach. "Duplikat aktov graždanskogo Sostojanija o rodivšichsja, brakosočetavšichsja i umeršich Serejskogo Evangeličesko-Reformatskogo Prichoda na 1891 - 1901. 63/196/0/1/41 – 51." As found on IAGL Online Indexing Project (germansoflithuania.org: https://index.germansfromlithuania.org/records/birth/51112 ) Accessed August 2, 2023.
- This information is found on the index sv "Citation" Przejdź do Szukaj w Archiwach. "Duplikat aktov graždanskogo Sostojanija o rodivšichsja, brakosočetavšichsja i umeršich Serejskogo Evangeličesko-Reformatskogo Prichoda na 1891 - 1901. 63/196/0/1/41 – 51."
- When I ran this through Purdue Owl for Chicago style (which I know is not Evidence Explained but was a starting point to help me get started), this was added to the citation: “Skan - Szukaj W Archiwach.”
Here is a link to one that is not indexed: https://www.szukajwarchiwach.gov.pl/skan/-/skan/43ada59ac372b0be0c69de5b514871e789a654246748fe5626ae140d1cad1ee2
This is the information I have for a citation for this one:
- Henriette Merner (Reinert) Death Record: 1904. “Skan - Szukaj W Archiwach.” Przejdź do Szukaj w Archiwach. https://www.szukajwarchiwach.gov.pl/skan/-/skan/43ada59ac372b0be0c69de5b514871e789a654246748fe5626ae140d1cad1ee2 . Accessed August 2, 2023
This is the main page from which I am finding the documents:
This is the information I have for the translator:
Translations by Krysztof Nierzwicki email: firstname.lastname@example.org Translation received Aug 11, 2023. Referred by Owen M McCafferty II, President and Chairman International Association of Germans from Lithuania (IAGL), www.germansfromlithuania.org, 646-413-0835, email@example.com
My document will rely heavily on this database and all other records will fall into one of the two categories of indexed or not indexed. Any help with making sure I do these citations correctly will be appreciated.
TIA for any help with brainstorming this one and getting this figured out. I really appreciate it.
