JULY 1998

Half of the Year Gone already?  No meetings during July and August.  

Marlene Heinsohn presented a very good program on various steps to try in finding the maiden name of your missing relative.  After this was completed she explained her use of the WEB TV that she uses for her Internet and the success she has been having.  She said,"Nothing like sitting back in the recliner with your wireless keyboard in your lap and looking at a 25 inch screen with your information coming up."  She loves to go out into Germany and Czechoslovakia in the late late hours of the night.  She must be related to King Midas for she always seems to find her family that has been missing for a few years of her research, the golden touch? 

Claire returned from her trip into the muggy southland. Visited were Shiloh Battlefield and cemetery, Stones River Battlefield and cemetery, a Confederate cemetery on private land at Franklin TN.  Trooped up to a Shaker Village in KY and went to Bardstown to see the gutted Olde Talbott Tavern.  The treat for her sister was the visit to the 256 acre Cave Hill Cemetery at Louisville KY.  Something to see, there is also an Arboretum within the cemetery, with the trees marked as to name.  Her favorite tree was the Purple smoke tree.  T'was hot and humid and rainy -but the rain came at night and sunny in the daytime. 

Our deepest sympathy is extended to Trudy Mengedoht in the loss of her father, Carl Mengedoht of Herman on 29 May 1998.

There have been a number of non-members from out of state making use of our Library during the month of June.  Our "tickler file", full of goodies, seems to be a great attraction.  One gent from Tennessee arrived at the door and he found some great obits and stories on his family.

We have come a long way, haven't we??? 


In 1686, a law was passed in Sweden stating detailed records had to be kept of all people living in the country.  The job of keeping these records was given to the Lutheran State Church, to which all citizens of Sweden belonged at that time.  In these records you may find names, vital statistics, records of family members, movements and much more.
