The YMCHS is asking families whose ancestors settled in one of the twenty-one townships of Yellow Medicine County between 1870 and 1920 to submit either family photos or wedding photos of their ancestors for our wall of history we have here in the museum. We are especially looking for photos of settlers for the following townships: Florida, Fortier, Norman, Hammer, Wergeland, Oshkosh, Omro, Burton, Swede Prairie, Tyro, Friendship, Normania, Sandnes, Lisbon, Hazel Run, Stony Run, and Sioux Agency Townships. We already have an abundance of photos for settlers of Minnesota Falls, Wood Lake, Posen, and Echo Townships. However, we will still take photos of families from these townships and will keep them in our archives to be put on our wall at a later date. To submit a photo bring the original to the Yellow Medicine County Historical Society and I will make a copy of it or you can mail the original or a copied reproduction to YMCHS at PO Box 145, Granite Falls, MN 56241. Questions call 320-564-4479.
