This Is A Mess - Cameron County Geneology Club

You all should be concerned. All sorts of Federal, State, Local records are not in their proper places.

More from Cameron County Geneology Club - Fifth Meeting Notes 7/12/2003

The Cameron County Historical Society has tons of historical items stored in boxes in different areas and this would be a good task for some new research and guidance in searching our history. Many people donated family scrapbooks, photos and articles, voting records, township records, etc. that were never categorized or displayed. The old library was previously a bank and there were boxes of old deeds and records in storage at that location that are now at the museum, along with many other local storage areas filled with boxes of family donations. At some time all of these items need to be catalogued for use in family research (OUR NAT PAPERS INCLUDED, NO DOUBT)and historical documentation and preservation. Sandra Hornung's attic is full of boxes of historical scrapbooks, papers, etc. that eventually will be sorted out. With new members at the helm, the Historical Society will undoubtedly locate some unique treasures awaiting discovery in the stored material.
