Your Kenosha County web site is fantastic, beautiful and very helpful. Thank you for all the time you must put into it so that we with Kenosha ancestors can find info. It's one of the best sites I've seen on the gen web.

I live in New York State. I recently purchased an antique Carriage Step made out of wrought iron. It is marked "Racine W. & C. Co. I had no idea what this meant. But now, thanks to your website, I found out that it was produced by The Racine Wagon and Carriage Company.
I can't imagine how many hours I would have spent trying to research this piece without a Computer and a Great Website! Thanks

I was able to find my great-grandfather's and great-grandmother's, August Maaske and Johanna Sellnow Maaske, grave site in Hosmer Cemetery along with a photo of their grave stone. Had the same finding for my great uncle William Maaske and his wife. The 1903-1904 Kenosha County, WI Directory, County - by Residents provided me with a description of the land owned my great Uncle Wm. Maaske. Thank very much for service and help.

Just wanted to let you know that I found my husbands grandparents in your Kenosha News brides section. I followed the instructions given to receive a copy of the announcement and am very happy to report that I received a prompt reply. I now have a copy of the newspaper article thanks to you and your site. Kathy --- 11/06/99

Jackie - I want to thank you for your site! Because of you, I was able to connect with a woman who was willing to do a look-up for me. She found my mother's birth announcement and my grandfather's date of birth and in the city/county of WI in the Kenosha news. I am forever grateful because now I can request the formal record (if there is one!) because I never had the date before today, so ...thanks! Michelle Laycock was the person who helped me on line.
