Welcome to "Ancestral Times", a glimpse into the life and times of my ancestors. The links on the left will take you to information gleaned from the pages of a small town Wisconsin newspaper in the late 1860's: children from the orphanage finding homes, accidents, births, marriages. Also included are the town hall minutes which outline how the town 'dog catcher' ended up also garnering cows who grazed the town streets!

If you had an ancestor in this area you may find mention of them within these pages. You may also be lucky enough to find other Wisconsin ancestors mentioned within these pages as newspapers often contained information on other statewide news worthy items.

April, May, June, July and August, 1869 are now posted. Hopefully in the future the remaining months of 1869 will also be added.

If you have transcribed any newspaper articles from Wisconsin, or any other state, and would like to see them posted here just send us an e-mail.


Use the convenient 'site search' box below to quickly check to see if your ancestor's are mentioned within these pages.
