Heritage Books, Jan 1, 2001 - History - 266 pages
This volume is the third in a series of books on genealogical data abstracted from early newspapers published in Vernon, Crawford and Grant Counties, Wisconsin. Over 7,300 citations which mention more than 13,500 names have been culled from area newspapers that were published between 1870 and 1901. The citations give information on people throughout southwestern Wisconsin, especially western and southern Vernon County, northern and southern Crawford County and northern Grant County. There are also a sizeable number of citations for people in the Lansing, Iowa area. Local news and town gossip can often yield valuable information, and can help us appreciate the world our ancestors lived in. These citations are organized by surname, given name, source code and description of the event. The surnames are alphabetized according to the primary individual mentioned in each citation. Spouses for marriage announcements are cross-indexed. Citations may include data relating to births, deaths, pensions, adoptions, family reunions, immigrants/emigrants, crime, military service, probate hearings, real estate sales, election results, desertions by spouses, recipients of county aid, funerals, anniversaries, divorces, patents, local history, occupations and much more. This work contains information for accessing microfilm copies of the original newspaper articles as well as a surname index.
