Family and Individual Files
Table of Contents
The Chase County Historical Society maintains files at its museum in Champion which contain information about Chase County residents. Kermit Karns has been listing the contents of the files which we are presenting here. The files are available for viewing at the museum and a photo copy machine is available to make copies of documents. The museum is open on Sundays during the summer. If you are going to be in Chase County at any other time, please e-mail the Webmasters listed below regarding making arrangements to visit the museum. As you will note below, there are many documents, articles, pictures, etc. in these files, and it will take some time to complete them. The museum is not heated in winter, and the files are being taken home to be indexed! We will continue to add information to this page as we can. Please note that the numbers listed with pictures are acquisition numbers assigned to the picture when it is given to the museum.
