Subject: [ILckEG] a new source - Boergener scrapbook Part 1 Introduction
Date: Tue, 22 Apr 2003 20:47:16 -0500
Alvina GOEBBERT BOERGENER
Wife of Henry Boergener
(pages 5 10 13 18 21 27 33 64 78 97 101 113 123 125 160 161 162 165p )
covering the period of 04-24-1901 to 04-18-1996
from the personal collection of daughters:
Leona Boergener-Schmahl (pgs 5 15 16 18 21 161 174)
Lucille Boergener-Vlieger (pgs 5 17 18 24 33 112 )
The original scrapbook is double sided, held in a 3 ring, brown school binder.
The book is composed of obituary and wedding notices from local papers, (some undated and unnamed), mailed notices received by the Boergener family, and general newspaper clippings that pertain to or are about local residents, not just family members.
This scrapbook material is a wonderful addition to the on-going preservation of Schaumburg Area history.
The Boergeners are buried at St. Peter Lutheran Church Cemetery.
They farmed at the Northeast corner of Biesterfeld and Rohlwing Roads, south of the Panzer farm.
After leaving the farm, circa 1950, they lived in Arlington Heights.
General Comments for the Alvina Goebbert-Boergener Scrapbook
All the photocopied pages have been numbered 1-194. Some original pages were very large and have been reproduced on several pages. Each of these pages has been given its own number.
All the pages that reflect a photo(p) have been shown as 15p 17p 171p etc..
The pages in the photocopied book may NOT be in exactly the same sequence as the original scrapbook.
All the names have been included (as they have been shown) in the index as referenced in the notices, not just the subject names.
Subjects, including wedding, death, anniversaries have also been included, (ie. Threshing, 4H, cemetery, plane crashes, etc.) when the article is about the related subject rather than a specific person. A review of the index will give you an idea of the overall content of the scrapbook
Places and businesses have also been cited.
Maiden names have been included follow in the given name of the woman. This information is placed in the listing if there has been sufficient inference IN THE ARTICLE, not by transcriber knowledge and then it takes this format - husband surname, givenname of wife, middlename of wife, maiden name of wife. Therefore, the user should ALWAYS check the name they are interested via a FIND transaction on the WORD document. (control+F, then enter in the keyword, then ALT+F, etc).Further, if you kow your person's maiden name, do a search on it for there may be an article in this scrapbook that predated her marriage. Regarding the maiden names..You must search that maiden name. Dual entries do not exist for ALL of the entries on the women, tho if there are dual entries they are entered as: husband's surname, given name of wife, middle name of wife maiden name of wife, page number. BUT errors can be made, either from the article in the transcription or in the article itself and!
maiden names and married names might be erroneously linked. REMEMBER, this is an index to gain access to the actual clipping.
MRS was entered when HER name was not shown but she was cited. her maiden name included if present...her maiden name will follow his which makes it look weird but there was no other way to reflect her maiden name.. Note, this is an index to gain access to the actual clipping and should NOT serve to take the place of the clippings.
MR and MRS was NOT always entered. the husband's name was entered but the MRS may/may not be entered; THEREFORE if you know the man was married, his wife may have been included in the commentary..Check the page for further information.
Multiple entries - If the same name appeared on the page in more than one article, that name was entered ONLY once in the index, so be sure to read the ENTIRE page to capture all of the occurrances.
States - States, if shown, are usually abbreviated with standard two digit codes
Titles as in Rev and Mr and Mrs were used without periods.
COMMAS and HYPENS and PERIODS were not used in NAMES. Commas re used only preceeding "see also" exhibits. There are no periods on Mr, .Mrs, Ms and no commas in searchable material, as in Schaumburg, IL
COMPOUND names like VanDYKE are not entered with SPACES.
St John Lutheran Churches and Cemetery. you must determine WHICH church (as there are several in the area) is being mentioned via your own methods.. The actual church being discussed is cited ONLY if the information is present.
A TOWNSHIP entry usually denotes a birth location..before we had VILLAGES and likely denotes a birth at a homeplace within the township.
THERE is only ONE clip written in German language but not transcribed on Page 104.
There are several pages where folded papers, or short clippings have made it impossible to determine all of the commentary. Transcriber would suggest that you try the Daily Herald on-line database or the newspaper index AT STDL using some of the keywords in these articles to locate the balance of the article. Since we are not sure about the sources of these clippings, it is quite possible that the Daily Herald was one source. These are the pages in question: 32 *** item folder, 33 *** item folded, 35 *** item folded, 40 *** last line, 43 *** lower left clip not done, 44 *** bottom of long column, 45 *** bottom of long column on page, 57 *** part of story covered up with a foldover, 59 *** last lines of Hawaii are cut off, 61 *** foldover covering article, 141 *** foldover covers end of article, 168 *** foldover covers end of article, 170 *** loose clipping covers some of the article, 181 *** last several lines
The original index from first data entry was 205 pages long and has been reduced to this present size by stringing the page numbers. Some instances may appear to the reader as candidates for combining. These were left through oversight. Efforts to reduce errors were made but it is very possible that errors will exist.
