August will soon be upon us - It seems that time is creeping upon us for our meetings once again starting with the one for September.
Bremen Passenger Lists - We usually hear that Bremen emigrants cannot be identified because the records were destroyed during WW II because of lack of space. That is not entirely true, it seems. - Now comes word that passenger lists of Bremen from 1920 to 1939 were partially preserved. There are 3,017 of the 4,420 records created during that time that have been preserved! These have been extracted by Die Maus in Bremen. There are over 635,000 persons listed in their database. You can search by surname, ship name, day of departure, destination and hometown. You may search the database without a fee by going to www.passengerlists.de. Supplied by The German Connection 30:2-3, 2006.
The IGS Newsletters are full of information for research in Germany and also new items appearing throughout the USA.
Take time to check them out. You might find something useful in your quest for German records.
GEOLOGIST or GENEALOGIST???
Do you know the difference? - One digs in the dirt and sometimes find artifacts. The other digs in facts and sometimes finds dirt.

DODGE COUNTY NEBRASKA MARRIAGES
100 YEARS AGO - From Book 4
Divine to Amy Pearl Simmons on 01 Aug
Prof. Newton Boggess, Dean of Music Dept at Fremont College and Miss Kathryn Holland Wedded.
A very pretty home wedding was that of Professor Newton M Boggess dean of the music department of the Fremont college, and Miss Kathryn Holland, at the home of the bride's mother, 950 East Nineth street, at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, the nuptial knot being tied by Rev W H Cooper of Fullerton.
Prof. Boggess is recognized as a man of great ability in his vocation, and is one of the most popular members of the college faculty. It is granted he is a genius as an organist and possesses talent which assured his rapid advance. The bride is the charming and cultured daughter of Mrs Ada Holland, and is very popular in a large circle of friends.
Professor and Mrs Boggess leave this morning for a honeymoon trip of three or four weeks in Illinois and will visit a number of the eastern cities.
