Hello all,

I have a treat for you! Our society started the collage in 1981 and they were so excited that the 1982 editions were jam packed! The old typewritten pages do not always process well under character recognition software, so for the older collages, it is my intent to transcribe some of the articles (not all, goodness, 'no') to put them on their own website page. Therefore, there are a lot of new pages on the website!

You will be pleasantly surprised at the number of surnames included on these pages and in the 1982 collages. I found one of my husband's in the story of the Stonewall wreck that was rather exciting for us. 

Rather than linking them all here in the newsletter, please go to the main page of the CGCGS website where you can click on the links to go to the individual pages as seen in the above image. Links to them can always be found on the resource page as well.

Bill shared with us a Missouri State Archives post on Facebook with links to those making claims after the New Madrid earthquake.  How awesome is that? It makes me wonder which of my ancestors lived through the time of the earthquake.
Chrissy and Erin share that they have been to some cemeteries this summer and have added photos to the map on the website for some of the ones around the Delta area, that being Hitt cemeteries, Fairview, Whitewater, Allenville and Dutchtown.
Our President, Drew, made the news! These are exciting times of digitization.
As always, we welcome you to submit articles and could use volunteers for the website content. 

We will post information on the November meeting next month.

Until then,

Cheryl Rutledge-Brennecke
