Posted on 04/25/2014 8:35:17 PM PDT by fieldmarshaldj
Hey, guys, I'm about as frustrated as can be trying to locate some pages I favorited some time ago for my own personal research. They were as follows:
When I went to them this evening, they all brought me to an error page. I tried looking them up on the search, but there was nothing resembling what I wanted or needed. I went to the Internet Archive and all I got was a "This URL has been excluded from the Wayback Machine." I tried Google as well, and nothing came up.
I've had these links for years when I've needed to research certain NY judiciary figures (which other sites do not have with respect to dates, etc.). I have no idea how on earth to locate archived pages otherwise or what other site to use in order to find them ? Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can obtain them ? Why they were removed at all, since they were on a state website, is beyond me.
The state of New York has something to hide perhaps?
Did you try a search engine? For example (NY courts website).
I got several hits.
They might have eliminated the “history” directory. When you’re on the error page, look at the menu bar, and you’ll see “Judges”.
Try archive.org and browse their internet archive. That is what comes to mind off the top of my head.
I’m explicitly looking for those pages. It was a booklets/books that were scanned. I can’t find it on their website.
The “Judges” link on the menu bar has absolutely nothing to do with what I’m looking for.
As I wrote above...
I went to the Internet Archive and all I got was a “This URL has been excluded from the Wayback Machine.”
Well, that sucks.
I tried searching through it repeatedly, but it didn’t have the documents that those pages had. I have no idea why.
No, that’s for court reporters. I’m looking for an explicit chronology of these courts and members. Mind you, there are some biographies of the members, but that is NOT what I’m looking for. This was a book or booklet that had pages of info on the memberships of each particular court. I need explicit dates of service (mm/dd/yy), and this was the only document that had them.
Specific names or topics could be used to tie them to the actual NEW directory of the website. For example, the directories "elecbook", "duely" or "thereshallbe" might mean something to the data geek that moved them.
That’s the main page of the site I’ve tried to search. I can’t find anything. Is there no alternative internet archive that can get around whatever is blocking these pages ? I cannot believe there’s no other site.
Tell me what or who those directories might refer to, and I might be able to fish them up for you. I have a knack...
These links send you in circles.
