curious if any of the census records other than 1925 have the individual

girls and he was the only boy, how lucky he was but he married my mom the

Its doubtful there would be any for sale. Those listed on the
Crawford GenWeb site were found in the LDS Family History
Center catalog and can be obtained for periods of about 4 weeks at
a time in their branch libraries. I don't think they make copies to

JULY, 9, 2002
3RD YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!!!!
This is to brief those that subscribed this year.
Three years ago July 9 we took over
the Crawford county Gen Web site.
There was not much there with the exception of several
informative and very nice family web pages, a couple town links
and the 1892 Farmers list.
There were many links but not much for our county.
The person that was in charge of this county since 1996
appeared to have neglected it much.
We took the reins July 9, 1999, when we found that a
coordinator was needed. At that time the counter
registered about 4400. Now after three years it is
No one person could have accomplished getting all
the data online without the help of all our volunteers
that are listed on each of the various pages.
Bob Kuehl our assistant has spent much time accepting,
assembling and maintaining all the pages you see online.
Just a note, there were about 25 pages, July 9, 1999.
Now July 9, 2002 there are 375 plus pages for researchers
to get lost in.
All the volunteers you see on each page are the ones
that either submitted this data or as in the 1900 census
project, spent hours reading those old microfilmed pages
and entering them so they could be used online.
We also had donations for printing, from volunteers listed.
Most of the cemeteries you see online are the efforts of
those folks that walked and read each stone to obtain the
We are getting data and many other items to add to the
pages from around the county, this is due to the many
folks that have an interest in Crawford county.
We do wish to thank those folks very much and please!!
continue to send your items.
Glenn Gustafson has donated much of his data from
his Kiron Kountry. If anyone has ever checked out Kiron
Kountry you will note that he has much data online that,
we are sure, he has spent much time obtaining and
To sum it up this is our county, each and every
persons name on the Crawford pages has helped and contributed
in various ways. The pages are for our pleasure and for the
many visitors to our site.
All of us connected to Crawford county can be
proud to be from each little corner of it. Me, I like
Aspinwall, but Saturday nights as a kid was Manning
in Carroll county. Oh yes! we were the Bulldogs of Manning
Now we can look for other material to enter.
Example: Veterans lists from all wars, churches
If the churches or schools had all their old and new records
on a disk or to be put into a website, this would
be much more available for everyone to enjoy. This could
be accomplished in various ways. There are folks with
computers and with a little instruction, they are willing
to volunteer their time.
A good example is what we have done so far with all the
thousands of names in the 1900 census from the townships
in Crawford co being transcribed by people in several
states, then sending this material by e-mail.
How many of us have thought about our ancestors
coming from Sweden, Germany, Ireland, Scotland, just to
name a few of the countries? That boat ride across the
ocean, with very little resources other than their
determination, had to be rough, especially for the
women and children.
To end with, bringing our ancestral data up to date
by getting most of it into an electronic file inline with
this century whether it be just on a disk or online,
should be our goal for this county.
Then last but not least. We have much data produced.
What do we do with it besides leave online. Online can
change as did paper to electronic. Neither Bob nor I will
not be here forever. I suggest to each and every one of you,
to give some thought and input to all these files over
the next years. Please do not let them go to outer space
or be controlled by others out of the Crawford county
area. I would like you folks to form a committee
and recommend a standby for both Bob and I. It would
be much easier to control by learning a little at a
How bout it you younger folks that may retire in a
Crawford county GenWeb CC
Does anyone know where we can buy Crawford County history books???????

Schleswig produced one in 1974 on the 75th anniversary of the
town's founding. Unfortunately, they didn't produce one in 1999 on
their 100th anniversary. I have no idea if there are any of the 1974
books available for sale. I doubt if there are after 25+ years.
There was a history book produced by Charter Oak on their 100th
anniversary in 1991. I'm quite certain none of those are still
available for sale. Jean Remmes of Charter Oak was able to get
copies made from some of the pages used for proofs at the local
newspaper that we could use to post the history on the Crawford
County GenWeb site.
