|Our November meeting was a
success, as everyone was involved. I must say that everyone seemed to be very busy seeking
out past records. Some took trips to the Dakotas, Missouri, Illinois and Kansas, another
took a trip to Pennsylvania, some into Kentucky and Tennessee. A few of our members
ventured out on to the Internet to seek out clues. As for Claire? she isn't one to go out
on the Internet, but has been a busy person. She has scanned 29 drawers of old newspaper
files, from 3 x 5 cards. Renee has the big task to get them ready for viewing. She has
also been busy doing research for persons that have relatives in this area.

Prussia, Genealogical Guide to East & West Prussia
NILSSON, Elof Ancestry of Lund, Sweden.
Microfilm No T-840-11, which is Ship Passenger Listings into Philadelphia PA 2 May thru 30 Dec 1888.
About the Ship passenger film. Heritage Quest will no longer interlibrary loan their records. They are available only by purchase. From now on, we will have to order all films from the National Archives. We are sorry to see this rental program cease, as it most certainly saved our members driving time into Omaha, to the Family History Center.
Newspapers from various states must be ordered through the
State Historical Societies, on a rental basis, providing they will interlibrary loan. We
have received mail from several State Historical Societies that no longer will do an
inter-library. This makes it even more difficult for a newspaper search unless you request
they do the search and pay their fees for "Look-ups."
I hope that the winter quarterly coming out this next week
will not be confusing to you. Many persons pass up the fact that their ancestors in the
1880's perhaps were lodged at a Hotel or even a Saloon(men generally) and they overlook
this-as they do not appear in the index. Soo-o-o-o Claire tried to put in a number of
boarding houses, hotels, and even a Saloon with boarders.

FULL FLEDGED CITIZENS
Fifty-three residents of this county appeared before Judge
Graves this week and took the oath of allegiance to the U S Government and, thus, became
naturalized citizens. This rush for citizenship almost swamped the court for a day, or two
and other business had to give way to it. The fact that, the present congress is liable to
make new and more stringent regulations in this matter, doubtless, stimulated this
business. Those, who passed muster and now read their title clear to full citizenship, are
as follows: Jos. Pospisil, Rev H A Hilpret, Carl Schwinck, John Meyer, Wm Meyer, Wm Braun,
Nicolaus Rahlf, Christ Groth, Ludwig Zeplin, Christ Meyer, J W Kellinghaus, Max Gerhardt,
Herman Reimers, Julius Reimers, Charley Reimers, Ferd Blanknagel, A Freckenstein, David
Rees, Fried Kind, Bernard Lindhorst, J Frickenstein, Henry Lindhorst, Charles Stieren,
Henry Einemann, Theo Oligmueller, Lorenz Ruskamp, H D Kuhlmann, F J Barton, Henry Behrens,
Fred Meyer, Henry Paulsen, Julius Wegner, Frank Heiman, Charles Ernesti, Ferd Ernesti,
Anton Batenhorst, Frank Batenhorst, Hy Lindhorst, Joe Neesen, Wm Zuhlke, Wm Buene, Geo
Feldbrugge, W G Vogt, Herman Kaup, Joe Batenhorst, Anton Kadlec, Jerry Stanek, Chas Kudec,
Theo Stalp, Ferd Ulrich, Jul Zimmerman, Chas Heese, Jacob J Meier.
Noted in the Fremont Tribune 18 Dec 1879
A facetious brakeman on the Central Pacific Railroad cried out as the train was entering a tunnel: "This tunnel is one mile long, and the train will be four minutes passing through it." The train dashed into daylight again in four seconds, and the scene in the car was for a painter. Seven young ladies were closely pressed by fourteen masculine arms, four pair of lips were glued together, and two dozen inverted whisky flasks flashed in the air.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE FROM CLAIRE!!
