Saline county, Nebraska., being approximately one and one-half miles south and east of Crete. The above forty acre tract was conveyed, November 26, 1873, by Wencl Jelinek and Annie Jelinek, his wife, to the directors of the said Maple Grove Cemetery, namely: G. W. Bridges, Charles Little, James Donnelly, J. R. Webster, and E. O. Wallace.

   The Riverside Cemetery was platted September 13, 1879. The first addition to this cemetery was platted October 13, 1884; the second, August 30, 1887; the third, August 4, 1888, and the fourth, June 23, 1920.

   Mr. Jesse C. Bickle laid out Riverside Cemetery in 1879, it being twenty acres in southeast corner of section 28, township 8. range 4. After Mr. Bickle had platted the cemetery he offered cemetery lots free of charge to those who had people buried in Maple Grove Cemetery, better known to the people of Crete as "Jindra Cemetery." Quite a number availed themselves of the opportunity and many bodies were removed to Riverside.

   The Riverside Cemetery was managed by Mr. J. C. Bickle until his death in 1885, after which his widow, Mrs. Elizabeth Ann Bickle took charge until her death in 1900. She willed the cemetery to her brother, Mr. I. F. Hunt, who managed it until 1910. In 1910 Mr. Theo. Haden Sr. purchased the cemetery from Mr. Hunt and is in charge at the present time.

  The South Georgia Historical Society and Genealogical Quarterly began its publication in January 1922. It is devoted to the history and genealogy of Southern Georgia and its settlers.

  Other states than Nebraska have become alive to the need of preservation of Genealogical material.

  George T. Edson of Filley, Nebraska, is publishing "The Stewart Clan Magazine."

  Through the courtesy of Mrs. David Hill, Secretary of the Kansas Society of Mayflower Descendants, Salina, Kansas. pamphlets containing recent additonal data in regard to the John Alden and to the Deacon Samuel Chapin lines have been added to our library.

  A History of Jefferson County, Indiana, has been presented to our library. Histories from other counties, especially from those outside of Nebraska will be greatly appreciated.

  The Nebraska Genealogical Society desires to be as helpful as possible to its members. It will furnish any information it has at its command either through the columns of this magazine or by correspondence. If scientific research is required, this Society will refer you to trained genealogists who will do such work at a nominal price.

  Members are requested to send their genealogical charts to Mrs. C. S. Paine as soon as possible.

  The regular meetings of the Nebraska Genealogical Society are held the fourth Friday in January, April, July and October.

  The October 1922 meeting will be held Saturday, October 28th, at two thirty o'clock at the home of Mrs. Caroline P. Whitcomb, 1515 So. 15th St., Lincoln. Nebr.
