Everyone Invited
Genealogy Work Day

Monday, February 10, 2019
1:00pm to 3:00pm at SCHRC

Great for those who are new to genealogy, those who have hit brick walls and those who just want a bit of genealogy camaraderie. This is two hours of help by researchers. It’s a fun way to spend a couple of hours. All invited.

A Hidden Gem

The Sheboygan County Historical Research Center is a hidden gem saving resources that would have otherwise been lost. A collaborative effort lasting nearly thirty years, the Research Center works with everyone to collect and share information.

Research Success Story

Many thanks for the amazing response to my request for information about Edward F. Zinns and his Milwaukee Graphite Company. For a quarter-century I was Head of Reference at the State Archives of Michigan, so I know good public service when I see it. Thanks for monitoring your business email after-hours. Given the caliber of the service you provide, I am not surprised. Your outstanding work on my behalf needs to be rewarded, and I would like to show my gratitude with a donation to your institution.
