This book done in 1905 by Motier A. Bullock was transcribed by Ted & Carole Miller, many thanks again to their ceaseless efforts to maintaining free data on line. I can purchase the old items, but without the help to transcribe, it would just sit here :(((
There are Articles (chapters) on early missionaries; women's work, educational facilities, incl. Santee Indian Normal School. I have also listed this book in the Religious Section of the NE Memorial Library.
List by church name of those that served as ministers.
List of church officials.
List of discontinued churches.
Alpha list of ministers and their assignments.
List of illustrations and portraits, incl. some really OLD stuff.
Ev. Lutheran Fridham
Congregation of Funk, Nebraska, 1879-1919 by B. E. Bengtson
First part in Swedish (reproduced as images). Middle part is collection of photos. Last part in English (translation of the first part, we believe). Tables of Content added. Every name index added for ENGLISH portion, includes all photos and the advertisements. Another great addition by Ted & Carole Miller!
Shadow And Sunshine
This is a small lovely history by Eliza Suggs. It was published in 1906 in Omaha. It is the story of her family and the experiences they went through being an African American family in turn of the century Nebraska. Eliza's father was a minister. Connie Snyder transcribed this rare addition to the Memorial Library and there is an all name index.
Compiled by Rose Rosicky, 1929
With special permission from Margie Sobotka, you can nowview "A History of Czechs (Bohemians) in Nebraska". We did have a problem in reproducing the different accent marks and ended up not including them in this transcription. There are lots of those hard-to-spell Czech names for you to look through. A great big thanks to Connie Snyder and Sandy Benak of NEGenWeb for tackling this one, I tried and my eyes crossed.
NEGROES OF NEBRASKA
WORK PROJECTS ADMINISTRATION 1940
This is an interesting booklet. Although only about 80 pages, it has some very interesting history exploring the settlements and where they were established, with an all name index by Pam Rietsch.
"Efter Fyrtio Ar"
From Connie Snyder, the State Coordinator of NEGenWeb, "The title is "Efter Fyrtio Ar" and Ted Miller has scanned in all the pages from the book for us. The only problem is that it is almost entirely in Swedish and none of us has a clue about how to translate it. It is apparently a history of an area of Kearney County, Nebraska. We could use someone who could translate the text for us from the scanned images and then we can post the book in an English text/html version. This book also has 15 pages of sheet music. Do any of you have the ability and capability to make a midi for us? If you would like to volunteer, please contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
"The Nebraska Aborigines as They Appeared in the Eighteenth Century"
Another great transcription by Ted & Carole Miller. Published 1913 by NE Academy of Sciences. Booklet - reporting on any/all documents known in 1913, related to American Indians in NE, & dated prior to the Lewis & Clark expedition. Focus seems to be determination of tribal names & locations. Every name index. There are some great old maps in this book.
NOTE: The large map (center button on last page) takes over 1 min. to load.
1913 Omaha Tornado - German
Now that I am finally feeling human after ten years of being put back together from an idiot who ran a red light and slammed into me I found that someone did send the transcriptions for me. I will be attempting to get this all completed soon.
