"The following names have been extracted from file folders containing an assortment of information from: obituaries, family group sheets, previous researchers, correspondence, census, and/or copies of birth certificates, death information and land records. No two files hold identical information and since none are considered a first or second source, the names should be used as a guiding light to search for your family. Identify a name and then try to cross reference to another. John and John M. "Doe" may or may not be the same person."
Names may appear in two or three different folders as families married. Location of this surname then identifies the file that it is contained in. Contact the museum for information on that person or family.
