Bio and Links
I've written and published two family history books and the history of Berryton for its 1986 Centennial.

I have just finished going through three books about Topekans in 1905, 1934 and 1956 for the second time. They were WHO'S WHO and BUILDERS OF TOPEKA. I added a lot more information for tombstones, but there are still many biographies that need to be added, once their tombstones are copied. I'll put the books away for another year and go back and try to find some more.

About 25 years ago, the local historical society put all the Shawnee County marriage applications up to 1913 on microfilm. They discarded the originals and allowed persons to take names of those they recognized. I gave my old mailman about 50 and he delivered them to people in our township. I have given away hundreds of them. I still had some left over, so I put them on FAG.

Mount Hope Mausoleum
Joanie, I am in the process of photographing the stones in the original Abbey Mausoleum, and have come across many pioneer Topekans. When it's time to get those Who's Who books out again, I may have some work for you. By the way, I'm giving copies of the Find A Grave pages with obits to the office staff at Mt. Hope for their files.

Shawnee County Marriage Apps
Just checking back with you to see if we could make it any easier on you regarding the above noted applications that you have. If you would prefer to loan them to us to copy that would be appreciated. We will be glad to pick up and return to you. Just let me know.
Thank you,
Topeka Genealogical Society
