Steve Morse and the IGG

From reader Joy Rich, editor of New York's Jewish Genealogy Society journal, Dorot:

In early July, the IGG (Italian Genealogy Group) and, shortly afterward, the GGG (German Genealogy Group) website began blocking requests that were coming from Steve Morse's One-Step website.

Users could no longer take advantage of the added value that Steve's One-Step site gave to those websites' data, such as easily finding the bride's record that corresponds to a groom's record.

Steve learned that, as of yesterday, the IGG website has stopped blocking him. The GGG website is still doing so, but he expects that they will remove the blockage shortly.

The IGG offers many useful databases for those searching Jewish ancestry, such as New York bride/groom indexes and naturalization records. The GGG carries the same databases.

Thank you, Joy.
