A yearlong Jefferson College Library initiative to promote personal, family and local history projects and preservation.

Family stories can be shaped by the time and place in which our earliest ancestors lived and worked.  Local history and family researcher John Linhorst presents on Jefferson County’s lead mining history, how he pieced together its story, and how you can use some of the
same techniques that he did to preserve your own family’s story.
