New in the Microfilm Room:
We have two new microfilm reader printers that print 8.5 x 11 paper copies,
OR will copy to a CD or your Thumb/USB/Jump drive. This can be used with
census, newspaper or other microfilmed materials. Copies are only ten cents,
and images can often be cleaned up beautifully. You will need your library
card number (or reciprocal card number or guest card) to use them.
Stop by and visit the library when the rush of the holidays is over for you.
We've got over 1/2 the US censuses, many Omaha area historic newspapers,
over 8,000 other books (and not just from Nebraska, by any means). The Greater
Omaha Genealogy Society exchanges newsletters with many societies across the
country--and they're at the library in the book room too. There's a small
collection of Revolutionary War Pension & Bounty Land microfilms, native
American tribal rolls (Dawes rolls, and Omaha area tribes), Germans to America
(and many other _____ to America volumes as well.) Ancestry.com is provided
free with your Omaha library card (or reciprocal library card--Lincoln, and
Council Bluffs to name 2) or you can get a guest card for $2 a day if your
local library isn't reciprocal with Omaha Public Library.
PS: Stop by the G.O.G.S. website at _www.GOGSmembers.wordpress.com_
(http://www.GOGSmembers.wordpress.com) or the obit index site:
_www.Omahaobits.wordpress.com_ (http://www.Omahaobits.wordpress.com) when you have a chance. The
obit site will have almost 2,000 new names going up with the next
update...most of which are pre-1978 (since after that, Omaha World Herald obits have
been clipped & filed in the genealogy book room. Unfortunately some obit cards
have been stolen by some who think that "it's my family, so I'm entitled to
take the copy instead of making a copy.") The index is a LONG way from being
complete, and is being done by volunteers...want to help?
Classes sponsored by G.O.G.S. and the library will start again in January.
There will be flyers at the Omaha libraries, and other places. They are
free, but pre-registration is required so we can have enough handouts. Third
Saturday mornings (except May) through June, 9 to about noon at the Mormon
Trail Center in Omaha. Why the Trail Center? Because we have had classes over
100 at times, and the largest class room at the library only holds 50. At
the Trail Center, we'll have enough room for everybody (unless we get 500
people--then we might have a problem)
