"Hi--have you tried looking with the spelling Jaszczak?  I found several in ancestry.com with this spelling and this is the local spelling now.  Many of these Polish/ Ukrainian names have several spelling variations over the years.  "

Keeping the Kittson Historian going----

Hello to all,   I am so glad that Glenn reminded us of the upcoming dues needed to keep the Kittson Historian going.  It would be very sad to lose this site after so much work has been  done to get it built up.   The people somewhere in the world that operate the website that we subscribe to,  really don't care if our site continues to operate or not.  It is like Google, if they lose a few customers, someone else will replace them.  They are a big business and charging a fee to sell us a…See More

August meeting

Yesterday's monthly meeting was very informational. Igot to meet a new member, Cindy Wetterlund, from East Grand Forks--a delightful lady. I even found out we share some of the same relatives, which is what genealogy is all about. You never know who will turn out to be a relative.I also looked through the Hallock Centennial History Book, which I had not done before, and found pictures of the Pacific Hotel in Hallock. Very interesting.See More

Louise Coffield replied to Glenn Browne's discussion TIME LINE - list creation.
"Wow--in reading through the time line--I can't believe all the towns or post offices that once were in Kittson County and are now non-existant. What a shame that so many places have fallen by the wayside through the years."

How did you learn about us?
Kittson County Historical Center
Hi--My name is Louise Coffield. I have been a serious genealogist enthusiast for about 40 years and have done extensive research on all branches of my family trees. This is a hobby I really enjoy. I recommend it to everyone from grade school kids to senior citizens. Everyone has a great advantage to do research now with all the information available on the internet such as census, birth and death, marriage, military records and dozens of others. If you do not have access to the internet, the Kittson Historical Museum right here in Lake Bronson has a vast assortment of records available and they also have access to on- line research sites such as Ancestry.com. Do your future generations a favor and preserve your family history now!

Hello Katharina and welcome

I was afraid I had some how missed your town when I had quickly scanned through all the places and typed them up, but I found you on page four of the list.   Hit " see more" to view the complete list of place names. Amazing how the power of the internet can let us communicate back and forth across the ocean in seconds.  What our grandparents would have given to have such a fantastic method of hearing from family left behind when they ventured forth to a "new land"!   Thanks, Louise

Hi Louise, I changed my profile photo and had no trouble Open up your page and on the right hand side, near the top you should notice the word "settings" then click on that and it will open your original profile page.
Click on your small profile photo and it will open the "upload a photo box".
Click on "upload an immage" button.
Then use the "browse" button to search for the new photo on your computer.
Once you locate the photo click on "Save". This should take you back to your profile page. At that point all you have to do is click on "done" and the new photo should be in place. Let me know if this works.

Good evening Louise. (I know you like to work on your computer late at night) I wanted to thank you for all your contributions to this web site but in particular for your comments on the genealogy page. If more people participated like you do we would end up having a great asset to leave for future generations.
Thanks again. Glenn

Louise, I'm sorry about the red color - I have recently changed from a dark red to a lighter red which is easier to read. I am also thinking of using a slightly larger font. I love the color contrast of red on black but realize not everyone finds it easy to read.

Thanks for the kind words. Writing about my hometown and it's neighbors is a real labor of love for me...
