If you have funeral pamphlets that you would like to donate, you can bring them to a meeting or send them to:

If you live out of town, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know who you are interested in. I have scanned all of the ones on the database and will email them to you for no charge. Check often because I will be updating the list periodically.
This can be done from home through Chronicling America! The index will go on our website (since we also have these newspapers on microfilm at the library). Contact Merrily at 402-706-1453 or email@example.com
We have finally added a facebook page. You can find it under “Greater Omaha Genealogy Society”.
Come check it out.
