Fremont novelty dealers have their windows filled with valentines and other missives that would make suitable presents for February 14th. The displays are as large as usual and include a number of designs that are distinctly new and novel. Among the most popular tokens offered are those that the form of postal cards. These are developments from the comic postal craze that has been sweeping over the country, and according to dealers, have made the “hit” of the season. One side of the postal is given over to a comic or sentimental picture, with an appropriate verse underneath. The dealers are all handling a big line of the small heart-shaped tokens that were so popular last year. ….Among the larger and more beautiful valentines, the new shapes are largely of automobiles and airships. Some of the more expensive ones are hand-painted. Prices vary and are from a cent to $5. It is claimed there is seldom demand for anything of the kind more costly than the latter figure.

History of Denman(Buffalo Co NE) NE. This booklet was donated by member James Spath. Thanks for remembering us, Jim.
Until 1988, the National Archives office was known as the Public
Record Office of Ireland and it was situated at the Four Court, Dublin.
In 1988, the Public Record Office and the State Paper Office were amalgamated
to form the National Archives. The original Public Record Office
was destroyed by fire in 1922 during the Irish Civil War. However,
despite the loss of many records, it continued to provide an excellent
resource for the family historian. The most frequently consulted
records were moved to the new office in Bishop Street. Records from
the State Paper Office in Dublin Castle were also moved to this location
Noted in the AntiqueWeek in December 2000. The Genealogy Section
of this weekly paper has been discontinued. Claire was very disappointed
to see it removed because it held so many suggestions, and also had Ruby
Coleman’s lovely articles I really miss them.

The January meeting was well attended, it seems everyone enjoys Jeff and his many programs. His program was about his trip to Switzerland last summer and items of family interest that were found. But he also had a great find in Omaha while he was helping to ready an auction of household goods. In one of the boxes he found a photo of his great grandfather who belonged to the Omaha Swiss Singing Society, and later that day he also found some of the badges that the group wore. What a find! Jeff also collects wooden carvings from Switzerland and has been fortunate in finding several of them at auctions.
