Mother Nature wasn't very good to us during March, the meeting was not held - oh yes, a couple here in Fremont did make an appearance.   Renee arrived with a folder of queries from Web site, so we worked on them, our helper was Rosey Larsen.  Just a few we were not able to help. Claire reports she is tired of snow-blowing or scooping the forecast of snow flurries.


If you have a quick question that needs a quick answer, you may be able to get help by calling the Family History Library(LDS) at Salt Lake City.  Their switchboard number if 1-800-453-3860. You get a recording, but after, an operator comes on the line.  You say that you need a question answered by someone at the library and are connected. 

If your question is INVOLVED - don't expect a long, involved answer.  However, they may know where you can turn for help. The Genie's View, LaSalle Co ILL Jul-Aug 1997 via Twigs & Branches Mar 1998 of ILL.

Since most of my columns have made some reference to the USGenWeb project,  I suppose no one will be surprised to hear that I have agreed to take over as the Dodge County Coordinator for NEGenWeb.  Russ Herre, the original coordinator for Dodge County, designed a very helpful page for area researchers.  He was eager to include information from ENGS on the page and has made our society a major presence there.  I will try to follow Russ's lead in incorporating any information that is available to help Dodge County researchers.  Of course, you can help there, too!  If you have information to add to any of the categories below - or have new categories to suggest for the Dodge County NEGenWeb page please contact me:  email - or write to - Renee Bunck  1424 Nye  Fremont, NE  68025
