Your Kenosha County web site is fantastic, beautiful and very helpful.
Thank you for all the time you must put into it so that we with Kenosha ancestors

I live in New York State. I recently purchased an antique Carriage Step
made out of wrought iron. It is marked "Racine W. & C. Co. I had no idea
what this meant. But now, thanks to your website, I found out that it
was produced by The Racine Wagon and Carriage Company.
I can't imagine how many hours I would have spent trying to research
this piece without a Computer and a Great Website!
...just wanted to day thank-you , it nice to see something free and a great
job didn't find my family , but had to say thanks

I was able to find my great-grandfather's and great-grandmother's, August
Maaske and Johanna Sellnow Maaske, grave site in Hosmer Cemetery along with a
photo of their grave stone. Had the same finding for my great uncle William
Maaske and his wife. The 1903-1904 Kenosha County, WI Directory, County - by
Residents provided me with a description of the land owned my great Uncle Wm.
Thank very much for service and help.

Just wanted to let you know that I found my husbands grandparents
in your Kenosha News brides section. I followed the instructions given to
receive a copy of the announcement and am very happy to report that I received
a prompt reply. I now have a copy of the newspaper article thanks to you
and your site. Kathy --- 11/06/99
Jackie - I want to thank you for your site! Because of you,
I was able to connect with a woman who was willing to do a look-up for me.
She found my mother's birth announcement and my grandfather's date of birth
and in the city/county of WI in the Kenosha news. I am forever grateful because
now I can request the formal record (if there is one!) because I never had
the date before today, so ...thanks! Michelle Laycock was the person who
helped me on line. Connie Tierney, Atlanta,
