The 50th anniversary of the Chippewa Falls Historical Society is a newsworthy event for the Chippewa Valley, as the Herald reported on Sept. 7.
Readers may be interested to know that the history center on Allen Street also shares space with the Chippewa County Genealogical Society, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.
This organization collects, catalogs and indexes records and vital statistics that document the lives of people who have lived in Chippewa County and may have used the artifacts that have been preserved and are now displayed in the museum referred to in your story.
You have free articles remaining.
Members are available on Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (when the history center is open) to assist those researching their family histories. The collection includes plat books, probate records, individual family histories and much more.
It is a treasure trove for anyone wanting to know more about their family connections to the early days of Chippewa County.
