Here are the latest additions to the library (or library catalog.) There are several publications from other genealogy societies, plus I’ve added links to several WSU dissertations that relate to Kansas history.
We’ve got some pretty blooms in the wildflower & wild grasses bed at the library:
Just a reminder that the library will be closed on Saturday, May 23, because of the Memorial Day holiday. Go interview your relatives!
Have you seen this? It’s a free, online journal with a cool mission:
Deliver impeccable, ideally groundbreaking historical research and well-written narrative. In a world of increasing historical illiteracy and apathy, Journal of the American Revolution (allthingsliberty.com) publishes passionate, creative and smart content intended to make history more palatable.

A short list this month, mostly periodicals…
This month’s new books include recent volumes of several genealogy society periodicals and a few more military books. In addition, we had a researcher interested in Kansas Mennonites, so I found some online genealogies and linked to them from the catalog.
Most of the additions in February are online resources to help you learn about the Chisholm Trail. To read an online resource, simply go to the library catalog entry as usual — there will be a “read the book” link that will take you directly to the book.
It’s cold, it’s snowing, and the Shocks are playing this afternoon. The library is closed today.
See you Tuesday!

If there’s interest, we’ll set up the projector at the library on Saturday, so come watch on the big screen with us.
