Genealogy is the hobby of a large and growing population.  This library is not the only source of local history, but there is a great collection of genealogy research materials that is expanding as the volunteers work to gather and organize it.  There are newspapers in print and on microfilm (current up to 2003), books on how to research family history, indexed files that guide searchers to articles by family name or subject, many Nebraska history books, and files and files of other information.  People doing research come to the library from the local area and from distant places.  The Plains Genealogy Society will be giving a demonstration of 2 research sites on the computers on Thursday, December 5 at 7:00 at the library and anyone is welcome.  There is not a potluck meal as stated last week.  Sorry for the confusion.
