Down by the old mill stream . . .

. . . in Sheboygan Falls, Wisconsin, is where you'll find the Sheboygan County Historical Research Center, literally within earshot of the 24/7 waterfall created by the old dam.

Among local research places I've visited, SCHRC is distinguished by efficiency (even when confronted with the daunting surname of Smith), friendliness, thorough cemetery transcriptions, and a collection of local deed abstracts (a bargain at $5 per search, $1 a page -- not many local centers go this deep). Check out the full list of holdings.

And September 25-27 SCHRC will host a conference on "The Dutch-American Experience in Wisconsin: 1840-Present."
