“They are not dead who live in the hearts they leave behind.” Tuscarora Proverb


Welcome to the Price County, Wisconsin GenWeb Project. My name is Tami and I’m the host of this site. Although I am still relatively new to hosting this site, I am not new to Price County. I grew up in Brantwood and still have ties to the county through family and my interest in family histories. Although I have not lived in Price County for many years, I visit whenever possible. I am learning a great deal about the history of the county and it's communities as I pursue my genealogical endeavors while striving to assist you with your research.


The purpose of this site is to provide free information useful in researching the histories of families that have lived in Price County; to help you in your own family research; and to provide you with information about the people and communities. If you have an interest in contributing information or materials to this site, please contact me.


I also appreciate your patience as I learn the ropes and update the site. Enjoy your research!
