If you missed our 1885 Genealogy and History Primer for a better understanding of the world of our ancestors in 1885, just click here and you can read it now. Then you can continue below with our translation.
In all our research we have only been able to find one, single copy of the 1885 edition of Amerikan Narondi Kalendar and that resides in a private collection in New Mexico. Thankfully the owner of this copy agreed to provide us with a scan of the Table of Contents! What a treat!
With a good understanding of the world our ancestors lived in, you can perhaps better appreciate what stories the editors and publisher of Amerikan Narodni Kalendar decided to print in their annual for 1885.
Enjoy this translation and let us know which story from here you think should be our next to translate to English!
