Links To The Past is a blog dedicated to Milwaukee, Waukesha, Manitowoc County Wisconsin Genealogy and History. This is fabulous as I have family history in Manitowoc and neighboring communities.
However, I can’t find an About page, so I have little information on the author or folks behind this helpful blog. I did find a link to “what’s old” which shows a page with massive information dating back to February 2001 on these Michigan counties and genealogy research. Wow! I’d love to know more about the history of who is behind this.
Even so, while the information is often scattered, more diary than technical, discussing what has been added (to where, who knows?) and updated, it is still jam packed with tidbits that may help you with your family history research in the Milwaukee, Waukesha, and Manitowoc Counties of Wisconsin.
Here are some categories of information they offer:
- Cemeteries and Deaths
- Manitowoc County
- Marine and Shipping
- Waukesha County
- Milwaukee County
I’d also recommend to them a good “how to use this site” instruction page to help future visitors understand what this is all about and how to find the information referred to in the posts.
