|Half of the Year Gone already? No meetings during
July and August.
Marlene Heinsohn presented a very good program on various steps to try
in finding the maiden name of your missing relative. After this was
completed she explained her use of the WEB TV that she uses for her Internet
and the success she has been having. She said,"Nothing like sitting
back in the recliner with your wireless keyboard in your lap and looking
at a 25 inch screen with your information coming up." She loves to
go out into Germany and Czechoslovakia in the late late hours of the night.
She must be related to King Midas for she always seems to find her family
that has been missing for a few years of her research, the golden touch?
Our deepest sympathy
is extended to Trudy Mengedoht in the loss of her father, Carl Mengedoht
of Herman on 29 May 1998.

FINDING SWEDISH RECORDS
In 1686, a law was passed in Sweden stating detailed records had to
be kept of all people living in the country. The job of keeping these
records was given to the Lutheran State Church, to which all citizens of
Sweden belonged at that time. In these records you may find names,
vital statistics, records of family members, movements and much more.
