[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage
We welcome any information you may wish to provide
for the free research of others.
So, dust off those old scrapbooks you have in your attic, dig out those old newspapers, or anything else you feel
is of interest to this County, and send them our way. We are looking for obituaries, newspaper stories, biographies,
Birth, Death and Marriage records, as well as interesting newspaper tidbits from years gone past - the items YOU
used to put together your family trees. If you have information that you'd like to share with us on the history
of this county and its people, please SEND
IT TO US and
we'll make sure it gets posted online.
We regret that we are unable
to perform personal research for you.
All data we come across
is added to this site, so please keep checking back!
