Just wanted to let people know that I just added over 1,000 birth listings
to our G.O.G.S. web site: _www.OmahaBirths.wordpress.com_
(http://www.OmahaBirths.wordpress.com) These are mostly births listed in the paper
which means that they are not the actual birth date (which isn't given in the
paper), but may help one track a family to know if you've got all of the
children, or possibly narrow down the search for one that's known to be
missing. There are a few from the early Omaha & South Omaha birth registers, and
there will be more. These records were prior to the State of Nebraska
making it mandatatory to register births, so they won't be complete although
there's a lot of births on the two films.
While I'm sending this to more than just Douglas county, it's important to
note that people lived in many places and had births reported in the Omaha
paper because they may have been born here for whatever reason.
I am also including Council Bluffs births when listed in our Omaha papers.
These births are often listed as having parents from many outlying
communities, so pass the word to friends in other area towns to check if they're
looking for births. There's births recorded with parents listed as having
their home in places like Glenwood & Missouri Valley. There is a
differentiation there as the entry will say: Council Bluffs so that people will know
it is a listing for CB, rather than Douglas county.
If they're listed in the paper, I'm including them also, even though
they're technically in Sarpy county. Most AF folks that I've known talk about
being stationed at Omaha because people know where Omaha is and draw a blank
at the Bellevue name when they get away from the local area. Just as with
the Council Bluffs births, if the paper says they were born at Offutt AFB,
my entry will indicate that.
Hope everybody finds lots of connections. (Hey, if you do, let me know.)
And just for the record, this site hasn't been going for very long, but
with over 5,000 births gathered as we gather obits, it's not doing too badly.
It's important to remember we are a new site, and gathering births is NOT
the main focus (we collect births as we collect obits for those in the
paper.) Not everybody gave permission to print a birth announcement, just as
not everyone had an obit. So visit and have fun with what you find.

Our latest acquisitions are available for use on the third floor in the
microfilm room. We have not started indexing them for obits yet, but it's
good to know that we have them since the State Historical Society is closed
for a year or a year and a half during their renovations.
Expect an announcement of the availability of a number of additional
Nebraska counties' marriage records through about 1900 soon. As soon as they're
available for use, I'll let you know what counties we have added. The
funds for this purchase came from Friends of the Omaha Library raised through
things like their quarterly book sales.
Additional acquisitions becoming available this week are many of Roger
Minert's books on German family history research. There are several more that
we have ordered from Picton Press that aren't here yet. Check the card
catalog to see what's available. G.O.G.S. purchased Dr. Minert's books with
proceeds from the workshop that he presented here in April.
