Mares Meeting Room
1722 E 19-Fremont NE

Program: Cameras, Cameras, CAMERAS!
Steve Bunck
This should prove to be a most interesting
program for anyone working on their
family histories.....Steve really can take a
great photo!

BROWSE NITE: 27 January 2003 7 p.m.

Claire recommends all members, if they are interested in cemetery photo-taking to attend. She has been with Steve on various occasions and has learned much by listening to him explain his techniques. He even uses old cameras as well as the new digital.....and he is anxious to share his knowledge with you.

The Mares cats really kept her hopping during the holidays. They decided to sleep under the tree, each wanting the same spot...all motivation ornaments would be found on the floor the next morning and it meant redecorate the tree. They were worse this year than last year. So this is the second year Claire had a Christmas in the Closet...or else lose the bows on the packages!

Holiday time was spent working on Renee's big project. The scanning is now into the R's. For some reason, Claire cannot let the scanner and all those cards of old items alone. Sometimes she even reads them over before scanning them. Well, you can't retain all that knowledge forever, the cards are from 1880 thru 1906, of Dodge county papers. Next would be fun to read all of the old papers from the surrounding towns within this county. It would mean making copies of the births, marriages and deaths, but wouldn't that be a wonderful thing to do!!!??

Not many realize that within our library we have the first two or three reels of all the county newspapers. Some are in poor condition, but maybe you will be lucky as you read through them for your family.
