COST OF VITAL RECORDS COPIES
Getting a copy of your birth certificate will cost you less on July 1st. On that date, the charge for certified copies of all vital records - birth, death, marriage and divorce certificates will decrease by $2.
The fees for records was raised four years ago to pay for the automation of Nebraska vital records system. A new optical imaging system allowed the records of Nebraskans’ vital events to be transferred from paper to computer discs holding images of 1.6 million certificates. The new system is speedier, less costly to maintain and takes up less space.
Effective July 1st, the new fees for certified copies of birth certificates will be $8. For copies of death, marriage and divorce certificates, the cost will be $7.
To get copies, send the correct fee with the name, date, and place of birth, information about parents, and a copy of your driver’s license for identification to Vital Statistics, P O Box 95065, Lincoln NE 68509-5065.
Copies can also be ordered over the Internet at:

A LIFE ROMANCE
Not all the romance of life is within the covers of books, as evidenced
by the long separation of a family of children from England, soon to be
reunited in Nebraska. Among the children sent to Hebron nine
years ago by the Children’s Aid Society of New York City, to be adopted
into homes, was a boy known as Ernest Kreel, who was adopted by C J Deming
living northwest of Hebron. The boy has now grown to manhood, and
desiring to know something of his parentage wrote for information to the
Children’s Home in New York City. From there he was instructed to
write to a given address in England. He wrote and received a reply
informing him that he was not an orphan as supposed and that his correct
name was Ernest Keel - not Kreel; that he with an older sister and two
brothers were sent from England to the Children’s Home in New York City;
that his sister is living in Beatrice and one brother is at Smyrna, Nuckolls
County, while the other brother is in the Army. All this is very
pleasing to Mr Keel, and Mr & Mrs Deming have very kindly written to
the brother and sister to come to their home for a reunion with their brother
Ernest, which is certain to be a happy occasion. (I’ll bet that was
a great reunion, back in those days.)

| IT’S FAIR TIME IN AUGUST!
The Dodge County Fair will run August 4 - 8, 1999. ENGS
will again judge the 4-H Section of Know Your Heritage. There is
some terrific talent out there in the youth, they deserve the credit they
receive. We will again honor the Best of Show Plaque to the person
selected from our judging. The plaque, itself, is in the shape of
Nebraska and contains a special Best of Show, Dodge County Fair on it and
our original logo is also included on the plaque. The tree on the
logo was designed by Mae Ritthaler, who passed away in 1998. Mae
also helped us with the judging. The majority of the entries are
forwarded to the Nebraska State Fair. STOP by and view the entries-the
judging is on August 4th.

It would hardly occur to present resident of this city, and particularly
not to those of us who have arrived here within the past twenty or thirty
years, that in the earlier history of Fremont the principal business section
of town was actually located south of the tracks in what is known as Jensen’s
and Turner’s addition. But such seems to have been the case, as a
Herald reporter has verified this week in interviews with Abraham C Jensen,
who is a son of the late Andrew C Jensen, father of Jensen’s addition and
L P Larson, who opened a general store in that then promising part of town
long about 1876.
