September 2005

  • Many of you know I live in Houston, TX.  In case you were wondering, we are  safe and sound, having evacuated to my daughter's home in San Antonio for the duration during Hurricane Rita.  We are now back home, and I'm trying to get caught up on my email.

September 2004

  • The long-awaited Colorado Marriage Index is finished and will be released at the Colorado Genealogy Society monthly meeting on 17 September!  This is a "must have" for every Colorado researcher, indexing nearly every Colorado marriage from 1858 through 1939 -- over 912,000 entries.  It will be available at society meetings and by mail order for just $10.  Here is a flyer with more information and an order form.   Note: I have this CD, and can do lookups.(Betty)

June 2004

  • Revamped the website, updated links, changed the menu structure.  Hope the website is easier to use now!  Some of the pages have moved, so you might want to check your bookmarks, or change them to the home page.  Re-indexed the web site which now includes the archived pages.  This added over 50 pages to your search results.

May 2004

  • Started the OBITS section.  These are for the earlier obits, send one or several of your ancestors, and we'll get it added. 

January  2004

  • OK, we finally finished our move to Houston, and I'm finally getting caught up with the backlog that piled up.  My apologies to anyone if I have overlooked your request.  Please send me another email, and I'll take care of it. (First week of November !!! yeah - right! )
     

Finished the Bela Reckmeyer Looking Back section.  Wonderful photos from 1912-1920 of the Montrose area.  Maybe you can identify some of the pictures from Montrose High School.

 

October 2003

  • OK, it looks like I haven't been adding anything, mostly I have just not updated this page.  Look for Bela Reckmeyer in the Looking Back section.   While it's actually listed under Delta County, there is a lot of gentlemen from Montrose listed in WITH THE COLORS WWI listings under Military. 
     
  • I am in the process of moving lock, stock and barrel from Tulsa to Houston.  Should be settled in new house by first week of November! 
 March 2003
  • Got the Postcards page started.  This is a little different from the Looking Back section or the Colorado Photos page.  Looking Back is more for photographs, programs and mementos.  Postcards will be actual postcards that are in your collection.  I have started the page with postcards from my own collection. (I have a BUNCH, takes a while to scan them).  Send your pictures OR postcards in and share with others.

January 2003

  • Military; WWI Draft Registrations Your ancestor might not have served in WWI, but did he register?  Check here for the names.
July 2002
  • WOW! We have added a bunch of neat things to look at.  Many thanks to Kathleen who has been keeping me busy with pictures and items from early Montrose county.  Don't miss this!
  • Just bought a book from 1917 about locals who were in WWI.  Supposed to be lots of pictures.  Just waiting for it to arrive in the mail!

June 2002

  • Added Search engine to search Montrose site.
  • Added new section "Looking Back"   This is where you can submit some of those neat old pictures that you have from anywhere in early Montrose county.  Thanks to Kathleen for her photos to help get this started.
First Quarter 2002
  • Cool articles from The Montrose Daily Press Oct 1944.  Take a look (click here).
  • Adding a whole new section for Obituaries (or Obits).  These can be old, or new ones.  Do you have a newspaper clipping or photo, (or transcription) of one of your family member that lived in Montrose County?  It's up to you to get them submitted. 
  • ABSTRACT OF ASSESSMENT  (Tax List) 1883 Montrose County, Colorado.  
  • Added a place for you to submit your URL along with your surname.  If you already have a surname registered, check it to see if the information is current, and send an update if you need to. ( I'll also update the date, so that other folks know that you are still interested).
  • Found some new links, and added them to the Links page.
