This summer has been hot, full of researchers, and fortunately we were able to help some of them.

Claire wishes to Thank all of you for the many sympathy cards and memorials to her husband, Emil, who passed away on 04 August 1999.

And now it is time to take items off the back-burner and get on with a new life, but it will be busy, for she has many ideas to complete, and with the help of Renee it will be another productive year.


Ellis Island opened as the immigration center in New York harbor in January 1892.  For many years it was believed that their records of immigration for the first five years were destroyed by a fire in June of 1897 along with the old wooden building housing them.  In 1994 Philip Lax, president of the Ellis Island Restoration Commission, reported that all of the early records had been located, either in the hands of shipping companies, the Immigration and Naturalization Service, or Balch Institute in Philadelphia.

The buggy of Baldwin & Rogers, which went into the washout at the Platte bridge on Friday night, was brought up to town yesterday morning, it being considerably damaged.  It was at first thought it went into the river, but it only sunk into the washout.  The driver was returning from a trip to Wahoo made in the afternoon and in the darkness did not notice that the river had commenced to boom during his absence.  He was not hurt in being suddenly pulled out by the team when the buggy went down.

How did tombstones get started?  The practice of putting a stone on a grave arose not from piety but from fear; its origin was not respect for the dead but the motive was of self-protection.  Even after all precautions had been taken, the living were still afraid that the dead person might return and act against his former community.  To make absolutely sure he stayed in his tomb, they weighted the soil down with a stone.
A later development was the worship of graves.  The tombstone was looked on as a home for the spirit.  Later on people were no longer worried about getting defiled, but became concerned that the grave may be desecrated.  They placed stones on the grave to prevent animals from digging up the body.
