What's New (past 30 days)


Tree:  

H Folks

I'm continuing to catch up on documents loaned to me; loading photos & info that I've collected over the years and scanning/photographing The Cobden Sun 

newspapers.  The work ahead never stops - thank you!  

I'm also working on the Veterans of Whitewater Region and the businesses and buildings of Cobden and would appreciate information and photos related to them. 

I greatly appreciate your emails and ask that you be patient as I will answer your emails as soon as I can.

I also appreciate the updated information and photos that you contribute to this site for all to enjoy.  As you can see from "What's New" and the photos attached

to individuals, there have been many contributors.

Hoping your genealogy search goes well.

Fay
