PROGRAM: CEMETERY TIPS
BROWSE NITE: 27 March 2000
Wonder why we haven’t had a speaker? Well, sometimes
Nona gave us a very good presentation in February on her trip to the
Czech Republic, and a short trip into Slovakia. To those who attended
she gave a very good history lesson, had some lovely photos which she shared
with the group. Lilac bushes are a must in every yard of a Czech
household, and lots of forget-me-nots. Nona was NOT searching for
family, since she has German ancestry, but it was a wonderful program.
She had many fine items to show and tell about, the various factories that
the tour went to for a visit, and the famous capital, Prague.
It is amazing how our membership has been increasing due to the USGENWEB
SITE - since January we have 6 additional members, all from out-of-state.
And we keep adding to our ENGS website.
At present we are working to put a number of photos of GAR men who at
one time belonged to the McPherson Post No 4, Fremont, NE so that we can
offer photos of these men to researchers and not have need to disturb the
original album of photos located at the May Museum. A big “Thanks”
goes to Jeff Kappeler and Patty Manhart for sharing this album with ENGS.
Also to member Renee Bunck for scanning in the photos to make them available.
They are not yet ready to make their debut, but in the future they will
The two mascots at Claire’s home have really made a big growth and the door must be closed to them from the meeting room, they would steal the program.
Our sympathy is extended to the Kruger family. Pauline is a member of our society. Her father-in-law Robert Kruger passed away on 04 Feb 2000.
Some little quotes with no authors.:
“The best thing about the future is that it comes only one day at a time.”
“One of the quickest ways to meet new people is to pick up the wrong
ball on the golf course.”

LOCATES BROTHER AFTER 64
Sixty-four years after he had lost all trace of them and they of him, Theodore Moser of Fremont, aged 87 , has located his brother and sister in far off Germany thru a letter writing by a friend, and now despite his age he is planning to go back to the old home for a visit.
Moser came to the United States in 1840 as a young man and located in Milwaukee. He corresponded with his father, mother, brother and sister in Germany until 1847, when his wife died. Then he left Milwaukee and drifted westward. His letters to the old home went unanswered. He finally ceased to write. Years went by and he had no word of relatives.
Several weeks ago in a conversation with John Hauser he mentioned his birthplace. It was near to the place where Mr Hauser spent his youth. The conversation resulted in Mr Hauser writing a letter to a friend in the old country in an effort to locate Moser’s family. The attempt was successful. Moser’s brother was located at Ulm on the Danube, and his sister at Kolbingen and they are again corresponding.
Thru them Moser has learned that his father and mother died years ago,
the former at the age of 99 and the latter at the age of 107 years.
