All of our ancestors were special in various ways.  Some immigrated with nothing in their pockets beyond the fare that would get them to their final destinations, some not even that.  Others came to this county as small children and are considered "pioneers" as well.  Still others came in the 20th century, long after those first roads were built and the wilderness settled.  And some of our ancestors were here for centuries before--each of them were unique.  Just because someone doesn't appear in a published biography, doesn't mean their story wasn't worth telling.  If you have stories about your grandparents that you'd like to share, send them--even if it's just a paragraph or whether it's a page or two..or three!.  The only two requirements are that they lived in Shawano County and are deceased.  If it's only a paragraph you have put together on your "Uncle Wilhelm", I'd love to post it!  And if it includes a photograph, all the better. Email me with the information!
