The Blair Cemetery Records are now online and searchable. They are located under the BURIALS link in the menu to the left.

Our final meeting for 2015 will be on Tuesday at 7:00 PM at the Blair Library. Connie Buller will be the Hostess. At this time we don’t have anything planned but we might think of something. Norma and I were in the Library on Thursday afternoon working on Obituaries....our endless job. It used to be we just pasted an obit on the card, now we double check to see if there was another obit printed in a different newspaper....especially the older newspapers.

Dixie does a great job of typing in the current ones from the Blair papers and Omaha World Herald, I try to find them as they are printed and paste them on the card. There are a variety of you scanning the cards and putting them on-line....We have a great collection!! Thanks to all of the typists.

Hope to see you next week! -Pat Hunsche
