Summertime is Research Time

The joys of summer.  Long days.  Fishing.  Lake Metonga.  Genealogy Research.

Yep, that’s right.  During the busy summer months, the Crandon Public Library sees an upswing in the number of visitors researching their family history.  Just this week we  enjoyed a visit from Kevin Jackson of Cudahy, Wisconsin.  Kevin is researching the Wickham, Jackson, and Domrose families of early Crandon and left the library with a large stack of obituaries and newspaper clippings from our microfilm collection. {It also helped that the Library Director is also researching the same Wickham line!}

Before leaving Kevin shared with us the following photo from his Jackson family’s collection.  It is an early photo of the Crandon Lions Club.  Kevin estimated the photo was published pre-1959.

Thanks Kevin for the great photo and we look forward to visiting with you on future research trips!

  1. Our Domrose family sort of “fell apart
    ” when our parents and aunts and uncles all passed. 3 years ago we held a Domrose Family Reunion in Wauwatosa, Wi. Such a wonderful day in our lives. I did not realize that Kevin even existed until this reunion. He has done great research about our familys. Grandpa – Otto Domrose – would be proud.

  2. What a joy to see grandpa Domrose name written on anything. A person gets older and loves the past but some how it feels like very old history. Thank you and all those involved God bless you all

  3. Picture of men holding E Madison St sign the name of Tony Kolspice is misspelled and I can’t furnish correct spelling.He owned the Gamble Store and sold it to his brother-in-law when he retired, a farmer from Shawano county. Don’t remember any children of Tony’s. Maybe I..t’s Kalupski, try finding it in a 50’s-60-s phone book.
