I have been a genealogist for nearly 30 years. While visiting Nebraska one year I took 1500 tombstone photos in Dodge and Douglas Counties. I also sell "If I Can You Can Decipher Germanic Records" written by my mother.|

|MrsB||RE: Thank you for parents for Grace (Shomshor) Lueninghoener|
You're welcome! I learned something just a few days ago--if I can get a few words of a German Bible verse, and type it into Google, all the rest of the words come, with umlauts and all, and the edition of the Bible used. The person I was working with died in 1912, and so I didn't want to use a 1915 Luther Bible for him. The Google place had some of the 1545 version but not, apparently, the whole Bible from then.

I assume these came from your far-seeing father who transcribed those German records. Thank you! (I could not find anything at all on the National Archives)

Can you please add Frances Wagner Hanna 64402596 to August John Wagner 31753653. She is listed in his obituary but not in the list of children you have on his memorial. Thank You :)

I checked the North Dakota death index, the correct death year is 1959.
|MrsB||Help with Lamberty's|
I appreciate your help so far, but I would like your help in knowing how it is that William A. Lamberty's middle name was August; how you know he was born in Scribner, how you know his parents were Mathias and Caroline (Westphalen) Lamberty. I am having no luck with the National Archives for him on these details. I did learn he earned a pretty good living in Fremont, Nebraska as an oil jobber in 1940. His birth/death dates are fine, and I know he was born in Nebraska. His last residence was in Hastings, but I don't know he actually died there. I look forward to hearing from you!

|MrsB||Deciphering the language|
I saw that you have worked with translating German inscriptions. My people are German, and I am pretty good at the German. There are a lot of Danes around here, and when I get really stumped, there is a wonderful Danish museum, with volunteers that are friends. The hardest for me are the Polish/Bohemian/Czech ones--I always have to look up those months, because they don't look like "our" months at all.

|MrsB||RE: Thelma Lamberty edits|
I do understand length! If I can help with any of them, please let me know. Our county historical society transcribes and puts obits online. We now have over 17,000 of them, and today a lady and I THINK we are done with the S's to date, but we are meeting at the library to go through those S's to see that all cards stamped "online" really are, and that there are no additions to cards or new cards that are simply there but not yet online. Doing the transcribing, and sending obits to volunteers on Find who manage memorials, has led to learning fascinating stories of how life was "back when"

|MrsB||RE: Thelma Lamberty edits|
Appreciate your saying so. The SSDI only gives the home residence--if she was, say, taken to a bigger hospital in a different county, or was on a trip, or even in a car accident, then we don't know her place of death. Thank you--I am not done with the Lamberty's by the way :)

Thank you for the edits! I am (slowly) verifying them, and do have one question for you. Thelma's last official residence was indeed in Hastings, Nebraska, but do you actually know she passed away there? Her Social Security lists that as her last known residence. If you have an obituary, or other record, I will happily change it. I am also finding some other bio for her along the way. Please check it out.
