Mother Nature wasn't very good to us during March, the meeting was not held - oh yes, a couple here in Fremont did make an appearance. Renee arrived with a folder of queries from Web site, so we worked on them, our helper was Rosey Larsen. Just a few we were not able to help. Claire reports she is tired of snow-blowing or scooping the forecast of snow flurries.

COPYRIGHT, THE QUICK WAY
If you are writing a family history, you can protect it by writing "Copyright" followed by the year in which you began writing, and your name. This is known as "common-law copyrighting" and will protect your work until it is printed. When the material is printed, the copyright notation needs to appear on the title page only. Further protection should be obtained by filing official copyright papers with the Copyright Office, Library of Congress, Washington DC 20599.
Another "hint" - re copyrighting. If you mail uncopyrighted material-or
have a completed work that is not yet officially copyrighted-go to your
local post office and mail by certified mail a copy of your material to
yourself. When the material arrives, file it unopened. If a
legal problem arises, you have a sealed, dated copy of your material for
the judge to open.(From Tinley Moraine Gen Newsletter, May 1997).

Since most of my columns have made some reference to the USGenWeb project, I suppose no one will be surprised to hear that I have agreed to take over as the Dodge County Coordinator for NEGenWeb. Russ Herre, the original coordinator for Dodge County, designed a very helpful page for area researchers. He was eager to include information from ENGS on the page and has made our society a major presence there. I will try to follow Russ's lead in incorporating any information that is available to help Dodge County researchers. Of course, you can help there, too! If you have information to add to any of the categories below - or have new categories to suggest for the Dodge County NEGenWeb page please contact me: email - firstname.lastname@example.org or write to - Renee Bunck 1424 Nye Fremont, NE 68025
