Welcome to the Pope County, Minnesota Gen Web Project site. My name is Keith Gulsvig (Check out my personal website). I have not lived in Pope County since the late 1970s but it is where I grew up, and where most of my family still lives.
I first adopted this site in 1997, and from time to time I have updated the site. I'm currently working on this site, so if there are any lost links please be patient. They will be repaired soon.
