ON THE SHELF
Claire has purchased and donated the following microfilmed newspapers
to our collection:
Hooper Sentinel 15 Aug 1901 thru 14 Apr 1910
Dodge Criterion 2 Jan 1903 thru 16 Mar 1906
Scribner Rustler 17 Dec 1903 thru 2 May 1907
North Bend Eagle, two rolls 21 Jan 1904 thru 7 Jul 1910(to
correspond with the previous index of the old newspapers).
|Claire had an eventful summer - she was spending time in the basement
reviewing the Dodge County Naturalization Records that are on microfilm.
Thought it would be a good gesture to put them out on Dodge County GenWeb…then
came the shock. Half of the names on the volume index were not placed
on the original index completed by the WPA back in "those days."
A new index was made for Volume B, C, D, and E. Now the WPA
index begins to make sense on the microfilm, as it covers information from
1906(new law enactment) and you can almost find the correct pages.
Claire hopes to have additional page information as to how to use it in
the near future.
Also to be completed in the fall will be Dodge County Marriages,
Volume 13. This will be the last ones printed as we are up into the
1910 plus era.
The fall quarterly is about finished and ready for printing, Claire
is still finding new tricks with her computer, but reports it is getting
easier for her. In spite of some difficulties, probably brought on
by hitting a key she shouldn’t have, it does help her.
