VETERANS GRAVE MARKERS
A good source of information for the family historian searching for deceased veterans in the Central Office of VA Affairs, 810 Vermont Ave, Washington DC 20420. If your ancestor’s grave is marked with a military marker, it must have been requested through official channels.
The request form may give relative’s names and addresses as well as
other information. To obtain a copy of the request, send all known
information plus your relationship to the deceased to the above address.

ON THE SHELF
E Pluribus Omaha Immigrants All by Harry B Otis and
The Immigrant Genealogical Society in CA, again, has some very good
items that I will share with you.
A MAP FOR GENEALOGISTS – FROM ANY Wal-Mart you can purchase for $9.95 a CD of “Travel Maps USA” by Cosmi. Among other things, it shows county roads, as well as main roads, but best of all, each cemetery is marked by 2 crosses. When you clock on the crosses, a map of the cemetery layout is shown. There are also directions, turn by turn, for driving to the cemetery.
The CD is not in a box, but in a CD case on a rack. It also contains a “Help File” with instructions to use it. (Pomona Valley GS News, Feb 2000.)
NARA REVISING FEES – The National Archives is in the process of raising the prices for securing copies of Military Service Records ($10 up to $17.50) and Military Pension Records ($10 up to $40). NARA now sends only the first 10 pages of a file, but may be shifting to sending all of a file. Pension files average 125-135 pages. You may check the progress of these plans for the increase in fees effective July 1, 2000 on the Website—http://www.nara.gov. Look in the “Federal Register.” (Der Blumenbaum, Apr-Jun 2000, p 150.)
Noted in Fremont Tri-Weekly Tribune 1 Jul 1905 4:5 under Scribner News -
“Eleven carloads of fine beef cattle were shipped to Chicago Monday

NEW CITIZEN - Henry Bolling, a German of Ames, came to Fremont and
took out second naturalization papers before Judge Hollenbeck.

It is a Portable E-Copier by Hewlett Packard. You can copy, store, share documents anywhere. It is a HP CapShare 920 E-Copier—lets you capture electronic copies with one freeform motion. It will analyze an entire page with built-in digital microscopes, and searches for matches in picture and text. After it has been copied(Like an obit out of a newspaper) you can send it directly to the printer, and you have your copy for your family history book. Claire just received it and is still experimenting with it. It could be a great help to her in researching, once she really understands the steps to be taken. Hand held, weighs 12.5 oz., uses two AA rechargeable batteries.
