Kittson County Historical Society

Kittson profiles and photos from the past and present

In July of each year our web page, kittsonhistorian.ning.com has to ask for donations in order to pay our fee to Ning.com. Ning supplies us with the platform and software that runs our web page.  If you were one of the generous members who sent us money, thank you very much.  This web page was created and is managed by volunteers.  Not one cent goes for hidden expences, salarys, or the so called overhead costs.

While the Historical Society and Museum board support us enthusiasticaly, we are a seperate entity and on our own finacially. Our membership on the web page has now passed 125. Almost all our members reside outside Kittson County and the state of Minnesota.

If you click on the membership tab you will quickly notice our members are from all over the United States and Canada. The one thing we have in common is Kittson County, Minnesota, where our family members once resided. Our web page and family history records helps bind us all together. Kittson County is gaining a wide reputation for having extensive genealogy records that are open to the public. Each year we assist hundreds of people to find long lost family ancestors.

If you have gone to the trouble of adding your name to our membership list, could you go one step further and send us a donation. If each one of the 127 members were to send us a  $5.00 donation we would almost have enough to pay for three more years of membership in Ning.com.  Help us build up a cushion of cash to ensure our web page will be around for many more years.

A big thank you to those of you who sent in checks from five to fifty dollars. Your money went to a worthy cause.

Aug 3, 2013--I see it is almost exactly one year later since the above post.  It is donation time again--so Glenn does not have to remind us all again1  We do want to keep this site up and running.  Thanks Glenn, for all the hard work you do to keep this site going.
