My apologies for missing the July meeting and failing to produce a July newsletter. Dental problems are overwhelming to me. I am sure I missed a very valuable program.
In the basket:
QUERY: Winnie Howard, 622 Ellena, Houston, Texas 77076, telephone 713/691-7458, is seeking information on Edna FREITAG WEISE and her descendants. She was the daughter of Annie Martha FRISKE and Herman FREITAG, lived in Rockdale in 1959 and her husband’s name was possibly Robert.
QUERY: Doreen Stephen Tipple, 34 Adler Circle, Galveston, Texas 77551, telephone 409/744-4370, is seeking information on CAYWOOD, STEPHEN and CARMACK surnames from the Rockdale area. She will pay for copies and books.
In the library:
Three books by former Congressman W. R. “Bob” Poage, recently rediscovered by Caroline Kibodeaux:
Videotapes donated by John Guillote: The National Archives, Census Records, The Family History Center, Military Records, Locating Immigrant Ancestors
3˝-inch disk from AGLL regarding its Canadian Catalog required 13MB of disk space for installation and approximately 6.5MB of permanent disk space. John Gillote would appreciate use of a computer to handle this disk or a 5˝-inch copy of the disk.
Information from Caroline Kibodeaux:
Some members are ordering from the Texas State Library’s revised CIRCULATING GENEALOGY DUPLICATES LIST. They are finding a lengthy wait for receipt of materials.
Members who are ordering AGLL material are finding that they are slow to respond and that the costs of materials including postage are about $4.00 per item.
The AGLL is having a sale of census rolls from 1790 to 1920 at $10.00 per roll.
