I have stepped in to give the Zegers/Winograd Project a new home and will be working on maintaining and updating it, after the owner was forced to end the project due to family reasons. It will go by the new name Project 2013B
Apologies for this somewhat duplicate post but I figured not too many would of noticed my announcement that was on page 17 of another thread
Going back to Sept 20th, I have been in constant contact with Karol Winograd and received valuable feedback as I slowly built the website, online forms (for submissions, and changes to the list), and what seemed like 50 revisions to get the Welcome page
wording just right. I wanted to make the site as clear and easy to use as I could.
Anyone not familiar with 2013B star notes, the duplicated serial number error that occurred, or the history of the project itself can read all about it at: https://project2013b.blogspot.com/2...welcome.htmlNEW FEATURES
Those who were subscribed to the Zegers/Winograd Project monthly emails will find some features that you will hopefully like:
-Database (spreadsheet) is now online and available 24/7
-Updates are made within a day or two, so no more waiting a month for the latest spreadsheet.
-The Database can be downloaded any time you want in a variety of formats.
-Submitting your serial numbers is now done with an online form, with a clear guide of what information on the bill is required, and where on the bill it is located.
-Changes to the serial numbers you have on record can be done through an online form as well. If you sold, lost, or (gulp) spent your star notes you can request their status to be changed.
-The forms will do some rudimentary checks of the data entered, so if you enter too many or too few digits, it should catch it, and save everyone time as far as playing email-tag to make corrections.
-There is a new mailing list you can subscribe to; it even has color and pictures!Match-making
Just like before, if a serial number match is found in the database, the admin (me) will notify both owners (the Fort Worth note owner, and the Washington DC note owner), and I will act as the go-between at least until both parties agree to talk directly to each other (if they even want that). PLEASE NOTE
if you submitted your serial number before October 1, 2021, you will need to re-submit your email address since the addresses that were part of the Zegers/Winograd database WERE NOT SHARED with Project2013B
(me). Past Zegers/Winograd Project members
Some members expressed that they did not want to share their email with the Project 2013B, so it was decided it will be 100% voluntary if past individuals want to do so.
If you don't want your email address shared, then simply do nothing (I don't have it).
If you do
want to submit your email address you will have to use the form at the following link specifically for that purpose: https://project2013b.blogspot.com/p...inograd.htmlAs always, and as it has been in the past, the email addresses of the list's members will NEVER BE PUBLICLY SHOWN.
I hate spam as much as you do.
I look forward to your feedback and suggestions you might have. There are more plans in the works, so the site will evolve.

PS: Please let others know of the new database, as I heard there was at least one collector who gave up on finding the matching pair to his star notes when it was announced the Zegers/Winograd Project had come to a close. A 2013B star note is a terrible thing to spend...
