1942-1943 April-February Scrapbook


Many thanks to our transcriber, Jim Cox.

We concentrated on births, marriages and deaths in order to proceed more rapidly through the 75 Scrapbooks that we scanned in 2012.

This is one of the smallest scrapbooks we scanned and deals mostly with the war effort.
There are several pictures of local men who were serving in the military.
Note: dates are approxiamate.
Articles were glued onto the pages where ever they fit.
Name listing is not all inclusive.

While the scrapbook pages are not numbered, the image number roughly corresponds to where the page is in the scrapbook.
Click on the image number to read the articles.
