The Fall issue of Capers is out! For those of you who have opted for electronic delivery, it should be waiting in your inbox. For those who opted to continue postal delivery, it should be in your mailbox a few days sooner than usual as we mailing first class rather than bulk rate.
The featured article this Fall is "Carl and Lillian Eggert Brown and Their Collection of Local History and Genealogy at the Milan Public Library, Milan Michigan" by local Milan historian and GSWC member, Martha Churchill. The collection is a goldmine of family history information not only for Milan area families but for anyone with family in the surrounding counties of Monroe, Wayne, Lenawee, and Clinton. Martha gives us background on the Browns as well as an in-depth description of the collection itself.
For Washtenaw researchers, be sure to check out our transcriptions of early poll lists and baptismal records.
A big "Thank You" to our Fall issue contributors -- Martha Churchill, Nancy Krohn, Barbara Snow, and Rob & Cyndy Steward.
The Fall issue of Capers was edited by the team of Judi Bornemeier, Nancy Krohn, Marcia McCrary, Jan Tripp, and Carol Uhal under the direction of Judi and Marcia.
