Please help! This site is only as useful as you make it! Volunteers are needed in the areas listed below.

You will receive credit for all submissions.

Uncle Sam
Lookup Volunteers If you have Lake of the Woods County materials such as local history books or an old yearbook or business directory- a lookup now and then would be immensely helpful. Give me your ideas here!
Courthouse or Library Research

Can you do a lookup at the courthouse or library from time to time? Some people do this as volunteers and some charge a fee - just let me know how to post it.
Indexers Are you willing to index the surnames of a local history book? If you are - we will be glad to post them (and give you credit, of course).
Cemetery Transcribers This is one of the best ways that you can preserve American history. How about taking your daily walk through a local cemetery and transcribing it? Take a clipboard or a tape recorder - you'll be amazed at how interesting and enjoyable this project is. Or even better - photograph the stones.
Vital Records Transcribers If you would like to transcribe early vital records, I will be glad to post them. You will own the copyright on the transcription and will get credit on this site. Perhaps you could transcribe marriage records or probate records from the county courthouse?
Obituary Posting
Obituary Posting We need someone to play "cut and paste" and post the obituaries from your local newspapers onto our GenConnect boards.
Old Miscellaneous Documents Do you have old letters or stories that pertain to this county? Send em in!
Vintage Photos Yep! I will post them too. Places, scenery or vintage people. Just scan in photos and save them as a .jpg file and attach them to an email to me with details.
