The Joys and Challenges of Creating a Family Memoir: Neutzner Family Pre-and Post-World War II in the Czech Republic & Germany

Genealogy over Lunch

11:30 am – 12:30 pm
Virtual Location: Zoom — registration required
Target Audiences:
Joan Barnes, University Libraries,
You’re invited to learn about Hannelore Neutzner Rogers’s two-decades-long journey of creating the Neutzner Family Memoir—spanning the pre-and post-World War II period—using resources that ranged from her sister’s recollection of events, to poring over century-old family documents, to correspondence with governmental archives in the Czech Republic and Germany and with relatives, and the obstacles presented by a language barrier.

The presentation will be given on Zoom on Oct 17, at 11:30 a.m. Registration is required.

The memoir has been added to the Czech Heritage Collections held in the Archives & Special Collections at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln Libraries. The Czech Heritage Collections consist of the manuscript collections, books, journals, periodicals, and other materials on Czech and Czech American history, literature, politics, and culture. Hannelore Rogers’s donation of significant post war documents related to the Neutzner family both in Europe and in the United States will complement the existing collections and provide primary materials that help researchers and others to tell stories related to military history and World War II.

Genealogy over Lunch is a University Libraries’ group designed to help individuals explore and organize family history. All students, faculty, emeriti, and staff are welcome.
