I went to the Fort Dodge Public Library today to see about filling some holes where I don’t have articles copied to transcribe and also to find out how the case of the battling superintendents turned out.
Unfortunately, although I looked for the superintendents story from the end of May through June 14, 1904, I didn’t find any updates. I may have to check the Webster City paper.
Luckily, I spoke with Roger Natte and he told me that it’s possible that copies of the Freeman-Journal may be available on microfilm at the library at Iowa Central Community College. I’ll need to call to find out.
Also luckily, I spoke with some people who were doing research on one of the microfilm machines at the library and was able to try to help them find some information. We didn’t exactly find what they were looking for, but they bought some books from the Webster County Historical Society, so that’s a bonus for the society.
Later, I helped do a presentation to some Boy Scouts at church, about genealogy. We’re (Jacqui McCollum and I) helping them earn the genealogy badge. We will be working with them next week, as well.
So, while I didn’t find exactly what I was looking for, sometimes you find things you didn’t expect and that’s good, too.
