Hi, my name is Jan and I am the the Bayfield County Coordinator. I have some deep roots in the county thru my Cameron and Henderson families. I live in Michigan, so I am not able to do research for you in this county. I do believe that if we all help one another we will accomplish our objective of tracing that elusive family tree. My interest started with a desire to join the DAR, which I did accomplish in April of 1998 and that interest in my roots snowballed from there. I encourage all contributions to this web site. One little piece of information that you may consider very insignificant, might mean the difference between knocking down that brick wall for someone.

Bayfield County finally has a mailing list. Click in to join. Type only the word "subscribe" without the quotes in the body of the message to join.
