Message to all viewers
My name is Bud Halverson, and I am the volunteer coordinator for the Roberts County GenWeb page. I was born in Roberts County and grew to adulthood in the Claire City/Veblen area. Although I spent most of my working career in Minnesota, I still consider the Roberts County area "home" and I return often.

If you have Historical or Genealogical information from the Roberts County area, such as maps, old photos, family trees, stories or tales, that
you would like to see on this website, please contact me. Any suggestions on improving this site would also be appreciated.
Please put 'Roberts
County' in the subject line. It helps me separate the spam and trash from the good messages. Thanks.
