This is the first photo of a new regular feature that will appear about once a week, usually on Wednesdays. Generally, one photo will be exhibited with a little info about it. The focus of the photos will be genealogical in nature or related to the tri-state area. Visitors may submit photos with who, what, where and when (if known) to me at: TSGS Cruiser

An example of working together. Vanderburgh Chapter DAR, Ohio Valley Chapter SAR and the dedicated staff of Willard Library.

Willard Library is an excellent library all the way around; but for me, it is the genealogical/historical Special collections Department of most importance to me. And the library deserves the recognition that one of our local DAR chapters deemed it worthy to make a very attractive historical marker. Willard's staff has been the greatest since I started using the library in 1978.
