  • Extract of Meyer and related surnames from Boscobel Dial--submitted by Anne Gwaltney.  
    "Back in 1980, as part of my research into the Gustav Meyer family of Boscobel, I read the microfilm edition of the Boscobel Dial and Dial-Enterprise newspapers from the late 1860s through the early 1930s; and abstracted all the articles that I found concerning them. As my knowledge of the family grew, I expanded my abstracting to cover all of the other families closely connected to them, and also collected information from a few other areas of Wisconsin where members of the family moved. I would love to hear from any descendents.--Anne Gwaltney"
