This month's program has a topic near and dear to those of us with Danish ancestors!
December 15 – John and Dawn Nielsen
Voices from the New Land: Danish Immigration to Nebraska
Explore Danish immigration to Nebraska through dramatic readings from immigrant letters, journals and diaries, as well as slides of old photographs, drawings and scenes of present day Denmark and Nebraska. The program will be sponsored in part by The Nebraska Humanities Council. Dawn is a teacher and John is Professor of English at Dana College in Blair, Nebraska.

Speaking of which, the Society has an AMAZING online searchable database of older Lancaster County cemetery and marriage records. I've already discovered dozens of valuable pieces of information here. Check it out here!
