|About this Site|
Welcome to the American Local History Network.
What is the American Local History Network?
The American Local History Network is a
non-profit, unincorporated association of historical and genealogical
researchers and volunteers. The purpose of this network is to link together
various local history web sites that would like to participate in free
association. The purpose of the American Local History Network (ALHN) is to
furnish students, educators, and genealogical researchers with the historical
and genealogical information. To accomplish this mission, we believe that
volunteer efforts are indispensable, and solicit volunteers to develop
information which will be made available electronically to a wide audience.
ALHN also will gratefully accept donations of information in electronic format
to be made available on the same terms as for any active participant. The donor
of the information shall retain copyright to the donated information, and may
rescind permission to use it at any time, for any reason, although we as an
organization would hope that would not happen.

How can I contribute informtaion for Pepin County?
Simple. E-mail the county coordinator,
(SuziQ@Cyberjunkie.com) with any submissions you may have. If the information
you have needs to be scanned you can use the US Postal Service and mail to:
Susan Fanning, 625 McClellan Street, Wausau, WI 54403. If you would like your
documents returned please provide a self-addressed envelope with proper postage.
I have information to submit, but it doesn't fit in the categories listed on the main page.
Send it anyway! This website is always
growing and changing. If the information you have is concerning history and or
genealogy for Pepin County it would be wonderful to see it here. If it is for
another area you can do one of two things. Either send it to the location that
it belongs or send it to Susan Fanning and ask that she forward it to the proper
How can I help?
There are several ways to help. First of all,
since you are on the Pepin County page, you probably have an interest in the
area. You may have done some research already. Send it in for others to
see! Perhaps you know what kind of content you would like to see. Make
a suggestion. Participate. Perhaps you absolutely dislike the style of
something on this page. Have a voice. Say something. Perhaps you have
interest in another area that has no coordinator yet. Volunteer to design a
page. Perhaps you have a reference material but no time to transcribe it.
Let me know. I will see it gets done. Perhaps you have time and would
love to help but you are not sure what to do. Let me know. I can share
ideas with you.
So, to simplify every scenario......BE INVOLVED.
I have feedback to share with someone about this county coordinator.
Hmmmm, I hope it is good feedback, so I will start there. There are several ways to voice your good feedback.
Now, for the bad feedback. I would really be disappointed in myself should this be the case........however, I guess we should cover it. You can use steps 1, 2 or 3 above. I would appreciate being notified first so that I may right any wrong that has been done.
