Donations Received

This 6-year project is now more than halfway on the road toward completion. Research and organization of the material collected - 40 linear feet! - took four years, and writing of the history began in earnest in December 2006. The end result will be a published book which will include information about Swedish immigrants memorialized under the Honour the Pioneers program.
