Bedford Taylor_County_Iowa_500

My sister Mary and I had a "research trip" to Bedford and

Clarinda, Iowa, last Friday. We saw some wonderful old

courthouses and other buildings, the Taylor County Museum

at Bedford is just awesome, walked a few cemeteries, and met

lots of wonderful and helpful people. But, we did not find the

information we were looking for. I guess another road trip it is!

May is National Bike Month - get yours out

and dust it off!


Seven members of the Otoe County Genealogical Society met

Saturday, April 22, at the Otoe County Museum of Memories

in Syracuse. A lengthy business meeting was held and then the

fun part: touring the museum and parsonage. Time did not allow

for the Kramer Building or the Garage. If you haven't been there

in awhile, we urge you to visit on a Sunday afternoon beginning

May 7. The Society received some research requests, so Sunday

Bob and I traveled to Paul, Nebraska, looking for the old home

of August & Mary Ann Mitzner. It had been torn down. Then

we went to Nebraska City and checked out the overpass project,

which is coming right along, and how could we not stop and

check out the new Tractor Supply Store in the old Alco

Building? It was a great afternoon with weather to match!

Don't forget the fastpitch fundraiser this coming Sunday

Multi-instrumentalists, Greenblatt & Seay, will be sharing their original tunes and stories on Sunday, May 14, at 2:30 PM, in the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse.

Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for students and senior citizens, and $1.00 for children. Seating is limited.For more information, write to  Greenblatt & Seay, The Old Schoolhouse, P.O.
