Wisconsin genealogy: focus on records

The contents of the current (October) Wisconsin State Genealogical Society Newsletter reflect in part the view of editor David McDonald, CG, that "it's great fun to see an article come forward that explores a hidden or largely unknown source":

"World War I 'Slacker' Lists"

"Wisconsinites on the Federal Payroll, 1880"

"Burials of Indigent Soldiers -- Sauk County, 1891-1902"

"Roster of Lodges, Knights of Pythias, 1899"

"The Woman's Club of Madison, 1895-96"

"Waupaca County, Saint Patrick's Cemetery, Lebanon Township"

"Rock County, Saint Joseph's Cemetery, Edgerton"
