Original Rusk Roundup Issues

September 21, 2007

Special thanks to Grant Ruske for sending me the following issues of the original Rusk Roundup:

  • Vol. IV, No. 2 & 3. Summer & Fall 1983.
  • No issues published in 1984.
  • Vol. V, No. 1. Spring 1985.
  • Vol. V, No. 2. Summer 1985.
  • Vol. V, No. 3. Fall 1985.
  • Vol. V, No. 4. Winter 1985.
  • Vol. VI, No. 1. Spring 1986.
  • Vol. VI, No. 2. Summer 1986.
  • Rusk Family Organization Membership Directory.

Now I wonder whether Vol. IV, No. 4, Winter 1983 was published; whether Vol. VI, No. 2 is indeed the last issue; and whether indexes were published for issues beyond 1980.

Original Rusk Roundup Issues

September 5, 2007

For the record, I have copies of the following issues of the original Rusk Roundup, which I copied from the LDS microfilm:

  • Vol. I, No. 1. November 1979. 
  • Vol. I, No. 2. Spring 1980.
  • Vol. I, No. 3. Summer 1980.
  • Vol. I, No. 4. Fall 1980.
  • Vol. I, No. 5. Winter 1980.
  • Vol. II, No. 1. Spring 1981.
  • Vol. II, No. 2. Summer 1981.
  • Vol. II, No. 3. Fall 1981.
  • Vol. II, No. 4. Winter 1981.
  • Vol. III, No. 1 & 2. Spring & Summer 1982.
  • Vol. III, No. 3. Fall 1982.
  • Vol. III, No. 4. Winter 1982.
  • Vol. IV, NO. 1. Spring 1983.

The first issue states “Along with a new Editor, The  RUSK Family Organization Newsletter assumes a new name, a new size and a slightly different format.  We hope you will like it.”  I’m curious to know if anyone has copies of the pre “Rusk Roundup” newsletters, or any newsletters from after Spring 1983.

Griffith’s Valuation

I just finished adding Rusks from Counties Derry, Down, Fermanagh, Mayo, and Monaghan found in Griffith’s valuation.  There are a few entries that are missing dates.
