My primary research goal for 2011 is to learn more about my grandmother, Sina Harriet Bellinger Kelly. I've yet to locate an obituary, but I did find this newspaper article noting her funeral service. Her funeral card also indicates she was born in Fremont, Nebraska. The certificate of her delayed birth registration that was filed in August, 1955 (three months prior to her death) states she was born in Greenwood, Nebraska. I do know that the Bellinger family lived in Fremont, Nebraska around the time of her birth. I have a photograph of the Bellinger family that is identified with a photography studio in Fremont.
