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 forty years, the Research Center works with everyone to collect and share information.

Research Success Stories

Regarding the Guyette family – “I found your help invaluable in finding so much information. Your help, kindness & dedication made me feel welcome in your center. You all went out of your way to answer my questions & were so willing to find old family photos & records, as well as make copies. Thank you so much!”

“Thank you very much for your assistance and encouragement last month during my visit to Sheboygan Falls. I was trying to identify any connection to my ancestor, James D. Bemis of Canandaigua, NY, to the Wisconsin Bemis family and if there is any connection to Rochester, NY. Thanks to your help…I now have a better insight into those questions…Thanks again for your assistance and encouragement!”

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.
