Welcome Visitors, Historians, and Family Researchers.
FAMILY HISTORIES & RESEARCH FILES
These files are a collection of family histories gathered into file folders, binders, and digital formats. Amount of information ranges from very sparse to one or more volumes. In some instances, the name of the researcher can be provided for additional contacts. Family names underlined/in Blue, have a link to their own personal web page.
The families are listed in alphabetical order. In the event the same surname appears twice, it is usually because it is also included in another family folder. The column preceding the surname indicates the storage area and must be included with the research request.
Column A headings include:
CF – Family history in computer file
FH – Family histories in binders
DFH – Digital family history
KP – Family stories in “Kansas Pioneers”
(Undesignated) – Family research in file folders
For example, if the request was for “Harvey Anderson” the patron should ask for “FH; Anderson, Harvey.” If the request is for “John August Anderson”, Column A is blank. There is no designated location, which indicates that the information is found in our vertical files.
We would be happy to copy the contents of these files for our patrons. The patron may contact us via email, telephone, or postal mail as noted on our home page. Upon request, we will advise the patron about the contents of the file or binder. If the patron wants copies, the following fees will apply: $5.00 for the search; .25 for each copied page; estimated postage.
The patron will be advised of the full costs and asked to send a check or money order for the amount. Upon receipt of payment, the packet will be mailed.
