Cedar & Vernon County, MO Genealogical Society Monthly Meeting

Tuesday, July 19, 2016, 10 a.m.

Nevada Library Meeting Room

212 W. Walnut St., Nevada, MO

 

Find that Book, Free, Online

Nancy Thompson will present the July program on how to find FREE digitized history and genealogy books on the Internet. Many times in conducting research, another researcher has listed a reference which you would like to review—perhaps a local history published in the 1880s or a family genealogy which was written in the early 1900s. This program will show you how to find these resources plus others and search them online or download them to your computer for future quick reference. Accessing books on HeritageQuest will be discussed. Additionally, using worldcat.org to find books in nearby libraries will be explained. 

 

     Each month the genealogy society presents information that will help with your research.  Support your local society with your presence at meetings and with your annual membership.  The Nevada Library Genealogy Department is open to researchers during all regular Library hours.  Wi-fi is available if you bring your personal device.  Two computers in the Genealogy Dept. are available exclusively for genealogy research.  A $25 12-month library card can be obtained at the circulation desk if you live outside of Nevada, or a free limited guest pass can also be obtained.

Walker, Missouri

Extant Issues Transcribed

In 1882 S. J. Preston began publishing the Walker Herald, a weekly journal sold by subscription, and continued its publication until two weeks before his death in 1931. Neoma Foreman was given permission by Preston's family to transcribe the extant issues of the newspaper and publish those transcriptions in three volumes. Each of the three volumes is fully indexed.  A “21st Century Award” from the Missouri State Genealogical Association helped fund in part the publication of the books.  The 3-book set can be purchased for $45.00 plus shipping/handling by emailing the Cedar & Vernon Co MO Genealogical Society at the above address.  Comb bound cardstock covers, 8 1/2 x 11 format.  Sample page at this link.
