    1. Looking for a family!
    2. Maryann Swigart
    3. Hello - I am new to this list and am at a difficult spot in my research. I'm looking for a family with no last name! I have a list of first names and birth dates but that is all. Theresia was born 2 Dec 1863 in Austria. She came to the United States in early 1882 and gave birth to her first 7 children in Menominee, Wisconsin on the following dates: Marie M. - 1 Jun 1882 Frank Joseph - 3 Sep 1883 Wilhelm G. - 4 Mar 1885 Adelheid - 17 Jan 1889 Emma - 14 Aug 1890 Sebastian - 4 Sep 1893 Theresia - 23 Jun 1896 The children's father is listed in the 1900 Federal census as also being from Austria. Sometime in 1897, Theresia married Joseph Mueller, a physician from Switzerland, and their daughter, Viola, was born in Michigan on 17 Apr 1898. From that time forward, the family lived in Saginaw, Michigan children went by the last name of Mueller. I do not know when Theresia moved from Wisconsin to Michigan (after Jun 1896); I do not know whether she married Joseph in Michigan or Wisconsin; I do not know anything about the father of the children other than his country of birth. I assume he died sometime between September 1895 (when Theresia would have become pregnant with his last child) and July 1897 (when she would have become pregnant with Joseph's child). The family remained in Michigan; Joseph died in Alpena in 1918. Does anyone have any relation to this family or have any suggestions on how I might go about finding the father? Thank you for any information you can provide. MaryAnn

    1. Looking for Timothy F Burns
    2. Paul Francis
    3. Greetings, I am looking for any details on Timothy F Burns, resident of Menominee in the late 1960's, early 70's. He had a twin sister, Anne who married and lived there as well, to I believe a Burkhart. Tim's older brother, William Patrick Burns married a PA Woman, worked for Schneider Trucking, and died here in PA in the 1990's. I attended Funeral and there was no trace of Tim Burns, only his sister, Anne who has not heard from him either. Reason why I am researching the Tim Burns name is that he is a 1st cousin. I have not heard from him in 30 years. I am writing a family history book. The parents, William and Helen Burns lived in Menominee, WI for 10 ++ years. William, senior died in a fire at their home in the years 1972-1985. William Burns, Sr. was a printer / stenographer at the newspaper there. I would appreciate any details on the whereabouts, traces of Timothy F Burns, born Warren, PA 16 June, 1951 and will keep my sources confidential. There are many stories of when he left Wisconsin. I do not have a social security number for my cousin. His original SSI No. may have been issued in Wisconsin, no record in PA-or Ohio. Thank you Paul Francis, Erie, PA 16505-1812

    1. Deaths Added to Wisconsin Vital Records Index
    2. Melissa McLimans
    3. Last month the Wisconsin Historical Society introduced our new Pre-1907 Wisconsin Vital Records Index, which can be found at We began the index with nearly 1 million birth records and are excited to announce the addition of nearly 400,000 Wisconsin death records. The new death index, like its companion, began as a 1970s microfiche publication. The Schoenleber Foundation of Milwaukee generously provided funds to convert them to electronic form, so now genealogists have free public access to a comprehensive pre-1907 index to Wisconsin births and deaths. Marriages, for all Wisconsin counties, are up next. You can discover ancestors by individual name, by browsing by county and year, or by exact date. Births and deaths can both be searched at the same time and then viewed separately, if desired. State law prohibits publication on the Web of original birth or death certificates, so when you discover someone about whom you want more details, you can order a paper copy of the complete certificate from the Society online. Most are delivered within two weeks, and Society members receive a 10-percent discount on each order. Or, you can use the index as a research tool that points you to the birth and death records that you need. Vital records are not the only genealogical source available on the Society Web site. To learn more about what we have online check out our genealogy page at Hope you enjoy the new additions. Melissa McLimans

    1. Burt Bowen
    2. Vallerie Jane Valentine
    3. Does the following look familiar to anyone on this list? Burt Bowen is my brick wall. I cannot find information on him. The information I have is pieced together from family members. There is some talk within the family that Cora married a man with the surname MASON a short time after the divorce Burt. ALSO, talk has it that Burt left the area. I did find a Bert Bowen in Washington state in the Fed Census for 1920 and 1930. Daughter, Glyde Adelia is my grandmother. Thanks, Vallerie 1. BURT WILLIAM2 BOWEN (BOWEN1) was born Apr 1872 in Wisconsin. He married CORA A. SMITH 1896 in Wisconsin, daughter of REV. SMITH and HANNAH DOUGHTY. She was born Dec 1879 in Wisconsin, and died Abt. 1948 in West Salem, Wisconsin. DEATH: DATE OF DEATH POSSIBLY IS 1948 WEST SALEM, WI. Divorce: The 1910 Fed Census Mondovi City, Buffalo Co.,Wisconsin has the marital status for Cora as Divorced. She and her four children are living with Hannah J.Smith. Alice P., dau to Hannah and sister to Cora, is also in the household. Cora is 31 born in Wisconsin. Leslie H. Smith, probably the son of Hannah is living next door with his family, Lulu B, wife age 41, Ralph D., son age 15, and Cyril B. son, age 9. Children of BURT BOWEN and CORA SMITH are: 2. i. GLYDE ADELIA3 BOWEN, b. 14 Oct 1896, Louisville, Dunn Co., Wisconsin; d. 17 Mar 1974, Springfield, Oregon. 3. ii. LOLA GRACE BOWEN, b. 13 Jun 1899, Mondovi, Buffalo Co., Wisconsin; d. 23 Dec 1989, Danville, Des Moines Co., Iowa. 4. iii. FLEDA P. BOWEN, b. 09 Sep 1904, Wisconsin; d. Jun 1987, Wisconsin. iv. KEITH S BOWEN, b. Abt. 1907, Wisconsin.

    1. New Online Birth Index
    2. Melissa McLimans
    3. I've noticed that this has been posted to some email lists already (so please excuse any duplication), but thought I would send out some more information. The Wisconsin Historical Society has just made available an index to Wisconsin pre-1907 births at It was made by digitizing the 1970's microfiche index (with which some of you're probably familiar) and then expanding it with tens of thousands of delayed births. The Schoenleber Foundation of Milwaukee generously covered most of the conversion costs, and the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society graciously let us include their delayed birth records index. The result is free public access to more than 1,000,000 Wisconsin births. As you'll see, you can search in a variety of ways. When you find someone for whom you want a birth certificate, you can order hard copy from us online or use the results to locate the film yourself. We plan to add pre-1907 death and marriage indexes in the next few months, creating a comprehensive vital records index that will be entirely free and publicly searchable. Until the death and marriage indexes are available, you can request searches through our Wisconsin Genealogical Research Service at Let us know how you like the index and happy searching!

    1. New Online Tools from Wisconsin Historical Society
    2. Melissa McLimans
    3. The Wisconsin Historical Society is very proud to announce the Dictionary of Wisconsin History ( The online dictionary gives more than 2,000 brief lives of famous Wisconsin people (and many not-so-famous ones). It provides the exact location of every community and civil township in the state, and explains how every county and 800 cities and towns got their names. You can even display a map or satellite image of any city, town, or village with a single click. The dictionary includes mid-19th century descriptions of about 500 Wisconsin cities and towns from contemporary gazetteers and travel guides, too. You can imagine how this could help your genealogical research or just give you some interesting facts about Wisconsin history. We also encourage you to submit entries to help us grow the dictionary. The Society has also been busy adding 3,500 entries to the Wisconsin Name Index ( For those of you unfamiliar with the name index, it was started about 1870, when WHS staff made a catalog card for every biographical sketch in each new Wisconsin county history. They made a similar card for every obituary added to the scrapbooks they called the "Wisconsin Necrology," and frequently added cards for magazine and newspaper articles about Wisconsin residents. After more than a century of such work, the data on the original cards was typed into a database that you can search online today. This time we have indexed Wisconsin World War Obituaries, a three volume scrapbook, containing newspaper articles and obituaries about the men and women of Wisconsin that served in the military during World War II. The index is available for you to find listings of your ancestors at your local library, through library loan or you can order copies from our Wisconsin Genealogical Research Service ( Please forgive the length of this post. I hope you have found it useful. Best, Melissa

    1. Willing to do Lookups
    2. Due to the overwhelming number of requests I have received in the past few days, I am asking that everyone please use the format shown below to submit any new requests to me. It is just too time consuming for me to have to read through two pages of information to find out what someone is looking for. This does not pertain to the requests that I have already received through today. They have all been received and I am currently working on them. There is not a limit to how many people you can request on your list within reason. I just ask to keep it short and sweet. :-) Also, a note that I do not have access to any of the more recent newspapers after the period of the 1970's. For those who are looking for something more recent, I suggest checking the current newspaper websites,, or the particular List for the counties you are searching. There is also a new website which is which has links to some funeral homes with recent obits from 1999 to the present. Format for Requesting Lookups: 1) Type of article requested: Obituary, Marriage Notice, Wedding Announcement, Special Interest 2) Name of person you are looking for - include any middle initials and husband's first name if it is a woman. Note: There are many times when I find an obituary under "Mrs. John Smith" rather than "Mrs. Mary Smith" 3) Date of death, date of marriage (approximate dates are fine or time periods if unknown) 4) If looking for obituaries, it is nice to have children or close relatives names that could be listed to make sure I have a match - just a few is fine. It's hard when it is a common last name like Smith or Jones - like looking for a needle in a haystack. 5) Any special note of interest: (i.e., drowned, suicide, in prison, etc.) This kind of information is always helpful also. 6) Please do not give me a 2 - 3 page explanation of who you are looking for. Although you may think it helps me, it does not. It just takes more time for me to figure out who you are looking for and takes time away that I could be searching for you and for others. Thank you all for your requests and you will be hearing from me soon. Michelle

    1. Willing to do Lookups
    2. Dear Listers and Administrators, Let me introduce myself. I am a genealogy buff just like all the rest and have 90% of my family located in WI. I do lookups for people in newspapers that I have available to me for the WI area. I do not do this for self gain, only to help others who have hit a brick wall. I have been there myself and know what it is like. I do not charge for any of the many hours I spend doing these lookups. I only ask for reimbursement of the copies and the postage which is very minimal. I do work a full time job during the week and am only able to do these lookups in my free time in the evenings and on the weekends. I do tend to get swamped with requests so I ask for your patience. This does take time away from my family and my own family tree. Last December I posted a list of WI newspapers that I have access to and am willing to do lookups for obits and other special articles. At that time I stated that I would update the list as more become available. Below you will see an update of that list without the time frames. Since as you can see, this is a very extensive list, I thought it would be easier for those interested to email me and I can provide you with a more extensive list showing the specific time frames I have available. For those who are interested in lookups, please note that the more information you can provide me with, the easier it makes it for both of us. Especially for the ones that may have info available through the obit indexes, this really speeds things along. Please see the list below.

    2. Dear Listers, Just wanted to pass along some helpful hints for sending me requests for searches. I have found that if you provide me with some or all of the following then the search is quite more successful. NAME (including middle initial if possible) MAIDEN NAME & MARRIED NAME (including spouses name if known) DATE OF DEATH (at least approximate) DATE OF BIRTH (if known) TOWN OF LOCATION (last known) If you do not have any these, please provide what you do have. Any little bit helps and will give you better results. I have received many requests over the past few days and have had quite a lot of success. Thanks to all of you and Happy New Year!

    01/02/2005 10:35:39
    2. Dear Listers, I am able to do lookups for obits and special articles. I have listed all the areas and time frames for the papers that I am able to check.

    1. Vavruska
    2. Hello Listers, I am looking for information on my great Aunt and her family from Antigo, Wisconsin. I have limited information, but I will give you what I have. Mary Vavruska died on July 15, 1982 at 96 years old. Her obituary was listed in The Antigo Daily Journal Obituary Index online (I would like a copy of the actual obituary). I am not sure of her husband's name but her children are as follows: 1) Frank Vavruska born about 1918, died on July 28, 1974 at he age of 56. He lived at 1946 N. Fremont and died at the West Side Veterans Hospital after an extended illness (I have his obituary also listed in The Antigo Daily Journal Obituary Index online). He was a talented artist and was awarded the Guggenheim Fellowshipin 1945 for paintings he did while in a military hospitalin in England at the end of World War II. In 1941 he received another fellowship from the Art Institute of Chicago of which he was also a graduate. 2) Edward Vavruska attended University of Wisconsin, Platteville and graduated in 1937. 3) Mary Driscoll (Vavruska) 4) Tillie Goddard (Vavruska) Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated as I have virtually none. I can be reached at [email protected] Thanks, Tammy

    1. Andersonville Civil War POW site
    2. Kevin Frye
    3. Hello veterans and newbies of the rootsweb. There are some really great folks who are willing to help just for the asking. I, myself do Volunteer research at Andersonville Civil War Prison in Andersonville Georgia. There are Any research I do is absolutely at NO cost and I am willing to do what I can. There are 629 prisoners on record from the state of Wisconsin and almost 300 who died here, I thought I would send my offer. I feel the need to say I am not in anyway trying to focus on the horrors of Andersonville compared to any POW camp in the north ..( i.e.Elmira ) or any others and do not wish to stir up arguments on this site. My focus is dedicated to ALL of those held prisoner during this war , on both sides as well as all Americans who gave their freedoms for those that we enjoy today.. I just happen to be near Andersonville so this is where I do my work. I will also do lookups for any solder from any state . Here are my sources of research. There are 2 online databases to do lookups.....One by by Company and Regiment. I also have a copy of the Dorence Atwater Death list which has the names and grave numbers of 12960 graves with only 460 marked as " UNKNOWN " This along with a CD I have which contains 34,000 names of the 45,000 who were imprisoned there which helps me find prisoner records because of misspellings of the names or alternate names. I visit the prison site every couple of weeks and have access to the onsite databases as well as the physical files. I would like to let you know of another service I offer which is to take photos of graves for a small fee. Please do not consider this spam as my research offer is FREE for the asking and will be posted on this county site only once. If there is anything I can do in helping your research at Andersonville, please just ask. Kevin Frye Local Andersonville Historian / National Park Service Volunteer Please visit my website dedicated to those Americans who were imprisoned and died in captivity while in the service to our country AOL USERS go to

    1. 15-18 May 2002 National Genealogical Society Conference, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
    2. Cyndi Howells
    3. The National Genealogical Society invites you to participate in our upcoming national conference: 2002 National Genealogical Society Conference in the States 15-18 May 2002 Milwaukee, Wisconsin Please share this invitation with all of your friends in genealogy. ABOUT NGS & THE 2002 CONFERENCE IN THE STATES ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The National Genealogical Society (NGS), established in 1903, annually assists over 17,000 individuals and organizational members in tracing family histories. The NGS provides leadership and education through its programs, online and home-study courses, publications, annual and regional conferences. The 2002 NGS Conference in the States will be held on 15-18 May at the Midwest Express Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is expected to attract some 2,500 genealogists from across the nation and several foreign countries. A complete copy of the program and registration information can be found on the NGS web site: LOCAL HOST - WSGS ---------------------------------- The local host of the 2002 Conference is the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society, the oldest and largest statewide genealogical organization in Wisconsin. Founded in 1939, WSGS now has more than 1,400 members both in and out of Wisconsin. WSGS is a non-profit Wisconsin corporation whose basic purpose is to encourage, facilitate and improve the quality of genealogical study in Wisconsin and about Wisconsin families. For more information, see the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society web site: Please direct all inquiries, letters and proclamations to: Jack Brissee Wisconsin State Genealogical Society P.O. Box 5106 Madison, WI 53705-0106 OPENING SESSION -------------------------------- Marsha Hoffman Rising will speak on the subject, "Strong Links Make a Solid Chain: Linking Records to Identify Ancestors." Rising is a Certified Genealogist and a Certified Genealogical Lecturer as well as being a fellow of both the American Society of Genealogists and the Utah Genealogical Association. She is a former president of the Federation of Genealogical Societies and currently serves on the board of directors of the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Marsha is an experienced researcher, author and lecturer as well as being a founding member of the Genealogical Speakers' Guild. MASTER LECTURES -------------------------------- Presentations by the masters, not just for the masters. We've asked four of today's top genealogists/lecturers (Christine Rose, Helen Leary, Elizabeth Shown Mills, and John Philip Colletta) to each present a case study, on a topic of their own choosing, describing how they identified, researched, and presumably solved, a tough genealogical problem. LAYING A SOLID FOUNDATION ------------------------------------------------ Guidance by many of the nation's top teachers and lecturers on the fundamentals of genealogical research a series of seventeen presentations, running throughout the conference. An excellent foundation for the beginner, as well as a solid review and update for the more-experienced. SKILLBUILDING TRACK ------------------------------------ NGS and the Board for Certification of Genealogists are proud to offer the latest edition of the Skillbuilding track, a series of presentations designed for those researchers who want to improve their research and analytical skills. The presentations in this track, based on the theme of "standards," will help improve the research and reporting skills of any serious genealogist. AND MUCH, MUCH MORE ----------------------------------------- The four-day conference offers more than 200 sessions (lectures and luncheons, workshops and labs) on virtually every aspect of genealogy. Because Milwaukee and the Midwest have historically drawn immigrants from many countries, ethnic and immigrant research (on both sides of the ocean) will be a major feature, but it won't be the only one. From Revolutionary War pensions to the 1930 census, to research in Social Security records, from research in New York to research in California, from lighthouse families to Chicago cemeteries, from Salt Lake City to France on the Internet, there will be much to offer any genealogist. NGS BANQUET ------------------------- Enjoy fine dining at the Milwaukee Hilton. Then after dinner NGS President Curt Witcher will recognize individuals for their excellence in genealogy. The newest member of the National Genealogy Hall of Fame will be announced; the NGS Filby Prize winner, and others who have excelled in genealogical writing will receive their awards. Our banquet speaker is Patty Loew, a renaissance woman. Patty is an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, co-host of WeekEnd on Wisconsin Public Television, producer of award-winning documentaries, and recently author of "Indian Nations of Wisconsin: Histories of Endurance and Renewal." Her presentation "Seeing Red: a Family Odyssey into Native American Heritage" is an account of her discovery of the rich heritage of her Ojibwe ancestry. LIBRARIAN PRE-CONFERENCE ------------------------------------------------ Quickly becoming one of many exciting hallmarks of National Genealogical Society conferences, another Librarians Serving Genealogists Pre-Conference is being planned for Milwaukee. Coordinated by Pam Hall Cooper with the cooperation of the Milwaukee Public Library, this Tuesday, May 14th pre-conference will provide a forum for communication and networking between librarians interested in providing the best products and services to their genealogy patrons. The event will take place in the Loos Room of the Milwaukee Public Library and it is necessary to pre-register for the conference. Information on the program and registration is available on the NGS web site. Beginning with check-in and a welcome at 8:00 a.m., sessions will cover topics such as "New & Old Inter-library Loan Resources for Genealogy Librarians," "NGS Book Loan Collection," "Family History Centers for Public Libraries," the "Mid-Continent Public Library ILL Program, and "From Neophytes to Know-it-Alls: How to Help Genealogists." There will be a Minolta Microfilm Reader/Printer 7000 and Book Scanner 2000 demonstration, a tour of the Milwaukee Public Library (Including the Great Lakes Marine Collection), a Database Management Panel session, and Tour of Goethe House. A box lunch sponsored by ProQuest (HeritageQuest Online) will be provided. COMPUTER LABS ----------------------------- If you are a beginner, learn about the genealogy software now available, and if you are an experienced computer genealogist, here's a chance to learn about the latest versions of genealogy programs and tools for genealogy. Instructors will introduce beginners to programs and demonstrate their features. Intermediate and advanced users will have an opportunity to advance their skills and learn special features of their software. Participants share a Windows operating system computer. Those attending must be registered for the conference for at least the day of the lab and pay an extra $50.00 fee. Labs are limited, with two persons to each computer. NGS LEARNING CENTER --------------------------------------- The NGS Learning Center is guaranteed to be a worthwhile stop on your tour of the exhibit hall. We will be offering a daily schedule of educational activities in the form of question and answer sessions, informal discussions, and demonstrations. A small sampling of the topics scheduled include online resources; historic maps; GEDCOM; digital cameras and other imaging devices; genealogical software; the NGS Web site and the NGS Online Census Course. Visitors to the Learning Center will also have the opportunity to leisurely explore a variety of software applications under the guidance of expert volunteers and to participate in daily drawings for genealogical software and other items. EXHIBIT HALL ---------------------- The many exhibitors who fill the exhibit hall will bring many and varied products and services for genealogists. There will be software to assist not only in recording your genealogy, but also for using the Internet; CD-ROMs for researching an expanding series of publications, indexes and databases; preservation materials; books; maps and memorabilia. All in one place! What a great opportunity for hours of productive shopping. At many of the exhibit booths you will find genealogical societies and organizations offering memberships as well as products, services, and free advice. International researchers and societies are a welcome addition to the Exhibit Hall. They seek clients and new members while offering information on research in their countries. WELCOME TO MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN ----------------------------------------------------------------- --- Ethnicity - Place Names and People --- Look at any listing of Wisconsin place names and you will be struck by the obvious variety in ethnic origins of residents of the Badger State. Menominee, Denmark, Brussels, Berlin, Oneida, New Glarus, Wales, Paoli, Pulaski, Oslo, Stockholm, Nashville, Abbotsford, Athens, Albany, Schleswig, New Paris, New Lisbon, New Haven, New Holstein, Pan Yan, Fond du Lac, New Richmond, even New Chicago! And of course we have not even touched on all the places beginning with Wau-. The names signal American Indians, Germans, Italian, New Yorkers and New Englanders, Cornish, Irish, Polish, African-Americans, Kentuckians, Slovenes, Dutch, Belgian, Swiss, the whole panoply of peoples from around the world who came to populate America's Thirtieth State. And more recently Hispanics and South-east Asian groups have added to our exciting mix. --- Genuine American --- Yes, if you have an interest in ethnic backgrounds, you've come to the right place when you come to Wisconsin. And Milwaukee, the site of the 2002 NGS Conference in the States, An American Sampler, is in many ways a microcosm of the many ethnic groups you will find throughout the state. Not only does Milwaukee still have a number of ethnic neighborhoods centered on churches, cultural organizations, and restaurants, but also there are eight ethnically based genealogical societies active in the city or suburbs. When the Convention and Visitors Bureau identifies Milwaukee as 'Genuine American' they're not kidding. In Milwaukee we've got 'em all, it truly is 'An American Sampler!' --- Culture --- Back in the mid-19th Century when Milwaukee was largely populated by German immigrants with a strong interest in cultural activities, it was known as the 'American Athens.' That tradition still exists with the Florentine Opera, Milwaukee Symphony, the jewel-box Pabst Theater, the Milwaukee Ballet, Milwaukee Repertory Theater, and the celebrated African dance company, Ko-Thi. If you like museums there is the Milwaukee Public Museum with its fantastic Butterfly Wing, and you must see the newly expanded Milwaukee Art Museum which perches almost like a butterfly itself on the shore of Lake Michigan. Or perhaps you'd like to visit the 15th Century Joan of Arc Chapel, where daily mass is still celebrated, or Miller Park where the Brewers play. How about the Harley-Davidson Motorcycle plant, or perhaps you'd prefer a brewery tour! All summer-long there is a succession of ethnic festivals. And we dare you to try to eat your way through Milwaukee! There are not only a wide variety of ethnic foods, but scores of restaurants in all price ranges and cuisine are within easy walking distance of the Convention Center. --- Venue --- The venue for the 2002 Conference is the Midwest Express Center, located right downtown at 400 W. Wisconsin Avenue. Just opened in 1998, this is truly a state-of-the-art facility, but one with a comfortable feel and over a Million Dollars worth of public art on display. The Hilton and Hyatt Hotels are literally just across the street, while six more are within two blocks of the Midwest Express Center. --- Weather --- Milwaukee weather in mid-May is usually delightful. Temperatures in the 60's to low 70's, although nights can feel pretty cool as can some days down along the lakefront. Light jackets and sweaters are a good bet. You will also find that Milwaukee, and Milwaukeeans, are a pretty relaxed bunch so informal and casual attire is acceptable almost everywhere. --- Hotels and Travel --- Transportation? Milwaukee County Airport (Billy Mitchell Field) can almost make you enjoy flying again (particularly if you travel by Midwest Express!). If you don't mind changing your mode of travel, you can fly into Chicago and then take Amtrak to Milwaukee, the Amtrak Station is only 2 1/2 blocks from the Midwest Express Center. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE! --------------------------------------------------- 2002 National Genealogical Society Conference in the States 15-18 May 2002 Milwaukee, Wisconsin ------------------- National Genealogical Society 4527 17th Street North Arlington, Virginia 22207-2399 Phone: (703) 525-0050 or (800) 473-0060 Fax: (703) 525-0052 E-mail: [email protected] Membership Conferences Learning Center

    1. [WIMENOMI] FW: Newspaper Abstracts Website
    2. Kelly & the Flock
    3. Newspaper Abstracts - where we are finding our ancestors in the news! Over the years many records regarding our ancestors were lost or destroyed in fires, floods and other natural disasters. Newspapers contain much information that may not be found elsewhere such as births, marriages, deaths, court notices, land sales, tax notices, businesses, etc. They hold many glimpses of information in their community news and provide us with many fascinating details about the lives of our ancestors from the businesses they frequented to the hardships and triumphs they endured while building a new life in a new land. Newspaper abstracts came online October 1999 and since that time has grown to over 2,800 pages of data all of which has been contributed by volunteers. This site contains abstracts, extracts and links to newspaper articles across the United States, Ireland and Canada published prior to 1923. More volunteers are also needed in all geographic areas - no submissions are too small or too large! Visit us at: to see how we are finding our ancestors in the news!

    2. Paula Vaughan
    3. I want to thank you all for all of the VERY positive responses. Many of the mail list administrators have stated it is all right to continue to post the reminders I am choosing not too. I did not solely join the county mail lists to place a weekly reminder on them. I felt I could contribute to others research not only by having a gathering place (weekly chat), but I have also answered many questions for many different researchers on the various county mail lists. I was hoping to help others. Should anyone need information on the Wisconsin Genealogy weekly chat-I have this information posted on the Waupaca County Website at the following address I will will continue to post chat reminders on the Waupaca County mail list, WauShaOcon Mail List and Wisconsin Mail List. Hope you all break through those brick walls and find those lost ancestors-have a great week! Paula _______________________________________________________ Say Bye to Slow Internet!
