Volume 7, Number 2, Winter 1980
Greetings to all members of the White River Valley Historical Society I want to express my appreciation to all who signed the beautiful card to my daughter Patricia Kreger at the last meeting. She entered the hospital for major surgery on that day, and has now recovered and gone back to work. I was away from home exactly two months, and cards and letters from my friends were most welcome I am glad to be at home among my friends.
My message is a question: Do we want to continue to publish a quarterly? I think the answer will be a resounding "Yes!" Then, why dont you furnish pertinent material for publication? In looking over the back issues I find interesting family histories, church and school histories, stories of old mills, cemeteries, lodges, Civil War, murders and other crimes, "Three--minute stories not in Print"-- all interesting and informative. I am sure these fields have not been exhausted. Our society consists not only of area residents, but our quarterly is mailed to all sections of the United States and we receive queries and stories from distant places. We sell surplus back issues to people from Alaska to Florida. The census records we publish, along with marriage records may not be entertaining but they are valuable to people searching for family history. We are just finishing Barry County marriage records--S tone County will be the next. We have already published Taney and Douglas County marriages and we plan to publish Christian County. We have the promise of some interesting stories of historical interest, lets have them! If we are to have a quarterly it is up to you!
