After a long and thoughtful debate about why I shouldnt be doing this, I have came to the conclusion that it needs to be done. I am currently searching for volunteers, researchers, and anyone interested in helping put together a historical book on Lincoln County and the Westboro area. I am planing on putting this together and having it done by 2005, Westboros 125th. I am hoping to get enough information on the area to prove it worth while and to help researchers of the area. I will be cross posting this, and sending mail to those I think will help in the area that do not have acess to the internet and also request for permission to use any published information that recently has been put out by the researchers. But I need help from fellow researchers to get this up and going. If your interested you can contact me at either email, but please make sure in the Subject you mention Atchison County, Lincoln Twp or Westboro, so I do not delete it by mistake. The following is what I am looking for in regards to the area:
History of Atchison County and Lincoln Township, information from conception to present. Want to focus on: First Settlers and Communities,
Brief Church, School and Cemetery Information,
Famous historical people, places or events
Major Changes in the Area
Anything else of interest
History of Westboro
Same as Atchison and Lincoln TWO but also the following:
Civic, Service, Club organizations and history
Town Plots, Land deeds
Information on town events (Wildcat Days, Lords Acre, anything else that was or is)
Veterans information for all military involvement. Want to include the following on each Soldier:
Name, Dates Served, Theater of Operation, Branch, Rank, Company, Status (MIA, KIA, POW)
Also want to do a section on those who lost their life in the service of their country.
Newspaper, Census and Reflection Information
Any article that deal with Westboro, Lincoln County, or people of Westboro.
Reflections of Growing up in Westboro and Lincoln County
And of course Census list for At least Westboro and Lincoln County.
I want to include a small bio on the Family, if they can date the family back very far let them, its time for their family to shine and be part of something. Try to keep it to a page, important information at top so If I need to condense it I wont feel bad. For Multi generation Family they can all submit something, not sure what I will use, but would like to use it all. Families may also submit photos, but I will ask for them at a later date but if they want to send them now, make sure they understand it might be 2-3 years before they get them.
PICTURES I would Like:
I would like new and old for everything that you can get, for the post office I know it recently changed buildings but I don't know where it was before, so pics of all the postoffices would be good.
Shot up Main Street
Pics of City Clubs and Groups
Old Farm Homes
Anything else of interest
