This site is dedicated to the Preservation of the Legacy handed down to us by our forefathers! The Library is working to preserve this historic heritage whether in written, photographic, printed or hand-written form. We hope that you will find accurate and informative content within our site.

Our hope is that you will discover, not only "who you are," (The USGenWeb Project) or "where you are from" (American Local History Network and American History and Genealogy Project); but that you might find items here that will enrich your own heritage!

Your hosts for this site are:
Lynn Waterman:
Ginger Cisewski; and
Bill Oliver !

"They forged their way through difficult and dangerous trails and truly came through the fires of trial to create a better life for themselves and their descendants. Their struggles should be remembered!"
