Do you have a book you could do lookups for others? Do you have old newspaper articles from Kewaunee Co.? Do you have an old family bible of Kewaunee Co. residents? Do you have access to census or vital information? If you have resources of any kind and wish to volunteer to lookup information for others who may have questions, please me and I will list your name and resource here. Thanks!
"The Antwerp Emigration Index"
This book indexes approx. 5,100 individuals or groups migrating out of central Europe from Germany, France, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium and other such countries. The destinations of these immigrants range from New York to Australia plus many points in between. This needs to be stressed though - the index covers only the year of 1855.
Not only are specific places of origin mentioned, but also the cities where passports were issued.
Two types of passenger lists are given; one direct and one indirect. These two lists help to explain the course taken by those who left Europe via Antwerp. Ship numbers and names are also given.
Sturgeon Bay (Door County), WI
Lookups in St. Joseph's cemetery in Norman and Nativity of the BVM (aka St. Mary's) in Tisch Mills.
Czech Phone Directories
I have Czech phone directories from villages and towns around Pilsen/Plzen, Prague/Praha, and Cesky Budejovice. Will do look-ups ONLY if village name is known and it MUST be from near to these 3 cities! Too much time is wasted looking for needles in haystacks. So please respect the conditions for lookups. Thanks.

"Our Marchant Relatives"
by Jeanne and Les Rentmeester
Their books are a combination of history and genealogy. They wrote about a massive immigration of Belgians to Northeast Wisconsin, an invasion which enriched the area in cultural contributions, ingenuity and common sense. The first one described the FLEMISH-BELGIANS; the book that I have is about WALLOON-BELGIANS. The Rentmeester's have included numerous family histories in this book which are indexed by surname.
