  If there are any direct or collateral descendants in Nebraska or elsewhere of Thomas (1) Drake of Weymouth, Mass., Elizabeth (Drake) Hamlin of Boston, Mass., or Joan (Drake) Randall of Weymouth, Mass., please communicate with me. I am anxious to prove the parentage of these three Drake ancestors, supposedly the immigrant ancestors before 1654. No definite proof has ever, to my knowledge, been established that these three were children of William and Margaret (Westofer) Drake of Yardbury, Colyton Parish, Devonshire, England.

The Nebraska Genealogical Society gratefully acknowledges contributions to the publication fund during the present year from the following societies:

Sons and Daughters of the Pilgrims in Nebraska, for 1933                    $30.00
Sons and Daughters of the Pilgrims in Nebraska, for 1934                     30.00
Nebraska Mayflower Society, for 1934                                                  25.00

This financial assistance came at a time when it was very much needed, as the number of pages published this year testify.

A greatly increased publication fund and an endowment fund are very real needs, if the Society is to carry on its purpose to make available our Nebraska source material. Are we willing to do for our posterity what has been done for us in New England and other parts of the east?
