Due to prior commitments, Susanne Flowers will no longer be compiling the annual index.  I would like to thank William W Berkman for volunteering to fill the role, which is of vital use to all our readers.

I have also heard ‘through the grapevine’ that some FRECOGs members have been looking for particular information they have submitted to the vertical files and have been unable to find it.
There are a number of reasons for this
1. It may be unfiled on top of the file cabinet.  Any member with free time is welcome to file the information.
2. Some of the information relates to more than 1 place/family, and may be filed under a different family or place.  Information that has multiple family information is, unfortunately, in a file called ‘Multiple families’.
3. I have some of the letters at home-none older than 2 months-that I plan on abstracting or placing in complete form in the newsletter. (Except during the summer when I keep the mail until the September meeting when it is shared with the rest of the attending members.
4. It may truly have gone walking-I hope not.
5. And my last thought on this may not make much sense to Frederick residents, but those new to FRECOGs may have some input.  I continue to receive mail addressed to the Frederick County Historical Society.  The Historical Society is a totally different entity that has its own set of records and its own separate and uniquely different collection of vertical files.  If  you sent records to FRECOGs and had someone look at the Historical Society for it, or vice versa-it won’t be there.
I would appreciate hearing from any individual having a problem with this, so I can help look for any missing material.

I received a grand total of 3 responses and one phone call about the April Computer Survey.
The caller was unhappy with the survey format and thought the idea was totally unhelpful.
The other respondents: 2 used Windows; 2 used Family Tree Maker (one DOS & one Windows version).
Of the 3, topics they would like to see covered:  Internet, Genealogy programs, scanners, and the newest Roots.
One of the responders included a letter and would like FRECOGS to keep a file or information sheet on all new genealogy software.
The Society does not receive very much commercial advertising for software, and most of these are abstracted in the newsletter for the membership, and then placed in the computer file in the vertical files. The most current book I know about on genealogy programs was mentioned in the newsletter in the August 1994 issue-George W Archer’s guide to software and that was out of date as soon as it hit the market.
I would appreciate a volunteer to offer to write a short section on currently available genealogy software to appear in future issues of the newsletter.

JOHN BIEHL DIARY EXTRACTS by Helen Six 19 April 1966

The attached are extracts pertaining to deaths, funerals, etc, from a rough draft copy of four (4) small hand-written notebooks kept by John Biehl, a great-great (?) uncle of Miss Hettye A HAHN, 224 Dill Ave, Frederick, MD 21701
In copying the rough draft, she has tried to retain the original spelling and terminology and I have tried to copy from her draft without change.
Most of these people lived in the general vicinity of Union Bridge, Bruceville, York Crossing (Keymar), Double Pipe Creek (Detour), Ladiesburgh, Haugh’s Church (Mt Zion Lutheran), Good Intent, Woodsboro.
The period of these four diaries covers the dates 25 February 1890 through 15 June 1894.
