My name is MaryAlice Schwanke, I am the new coordinator for the Isasca County MNGenWeb Project, I do not live in the county but do have some family ties to it. 

There will be many changes over the next few weeks.  I hope to make this site easier to navigate and to provide you with the tools you need to research your family history, please check back often.

why we research our family history

"In all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we came from.  Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hallow yearning.  No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness."

Alex Haley, Roots
