Steve Cox presented a great program to our group in May.  His program was on preservation of family material and where to  place your items. 

The family he represented was from the South and during the time of the Civil War.  He had many lovely letters from those serving to their parents and after the war, what became of their children, and to their slaves..

This material that he had sorted through, from the family, was placed in a Mississippi Library Archives, where others would have access to the materials.

Some very good ideas were gained from his presentation.

Thanks Steve for a great program!

Marlene Heinsohn has been in and out of the hospital several times during May and June.  We wish her a 
speedy recovery.

FLAG DAY is celebrated on June 14 in memory of the day in 1777 when the Continental Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the United States.  It is NOT an official national holiday, but is proclaimed by the President as a special observance each year. 

It was first officially observed in 1877 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the selection of the flag.  It was suggested by a number of persons, that it be observed each year.  In 1897, the governor of New York proclaimed a Flag Day celebration for the first time as an annual event in that state.  Woodrow Wilson established Flag Day as an annual national celebration in his proclamation issued May 30, 1916.

I understand there has been a request for lots of genealogy web addresses to be included in this column.  Here are some sites that you should find helpful. For Dodge County, NE research, I would suggest that you start with the Dodge County NEGenWeb site at:    www.rootsweb.com/~nedodge
This newsletter with “live links” that you can click is online – just scroll down the main page and click on ENGS Monthly Newsletter and Archives then choose June of  2000. While you are there, you might also want to take a look at the latest tombstone files that have been typed from the original lists in the ENGS library. 

All of the small Dodge County cemeteries are now online and the large cemeteries have indexes online or in progress.  A heartfelt “Thank You” to Claire for walking most of the cemeteries and providing the copies for the volunteers to type and to all the volunteers who have been involved in typing and proofreading.  Our latest additions have been typed by Mary LeBlanc of Ridgecrest CA, Charlotte Croshaw of Fremont NE, Judy Ellis Czarnecki of Monrovia CA, and Marilyn Estrada of Phoenix, AZ
