Kittson County Historical Society

Kittson profiles and photos from the past and present

The Kittson County Museum, History Center and Genealogical Research Library has made the decision to discontinue use of the Kittsonhistorian.ning.com forum within the next several months.  Should you have artifacts or documents here you wish to save, you are advised to do so as soon as practical.  Although it was a difficult decision, the lack of staff to properly maintain the site and of course the cost associated with it were key factors.   We anticipate this site will no longer function by the end of this year (2021).

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to your joining our growing membership rolls at our official Facebook page.   Kittson County History Center/Museum | Facebook.   

Thanks!!

Will they be downloading all the photos and associated data with them to save somewhere - if not on the Facebook group, then at least a snapshot of this website's contents to save on one of the history center's computers?

Speaking of which, does anyone regularly backup the history center's computers to ensure the safety of the valuable historical contents they contain?

Hi Trish.  At the time the decision was made by the Board to eliminate this platform and the associated expense, we did salvage the historic pictures along with groups and other details.  I made several copies of that data and forwarded the CDs to The Museum.  So, I think they have that covered.   Some of the "newer" pictures however were not deemed historical in nature and of course that is why we provided a warning to all users back in August of 2021.  However, if there is something you would personally like to save from this site, I'd recommend you do it as soon as practical since the yearly subscription will not be renewed.   As far as The Museum's regular data back up and disaster recovery procedures, you'd have to ask our director about these details.
