This and the following page are written in a hand different from the other two. It was evidently the work of either Wm. Kline or Wm. Taylor.

For many years Miss Lindly took a keen interest in genealogy, first as an amateur and later as a professional worker. Early in 1923 she became one of the founders and a charter member of the Nebraska Genealogical Society and served for five years as the first editor of the Nebraska and Midwest Genealogical Record, which it publishes.
Miss Lindly had been an active member of the Colonial Dames of America, Daughters of the American Revolution, and Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America. Her genealogical library, which was quite valuable, was given to the Lincoln City Library, shortly before her death.
