I've been thinking about making this group for a long time, as I find early Wisconsin history fascinating.

So I would like this project to be for anyone with an interest in early Wisconsin history, but of course other Wisconsin related information is welcome.

I've digitized or have access to a number of resources created by the historical societies of LaCrosse, Buffalo, and Trempealeau counties, and would like to share them with anyone interested.

Everyone should feel welcome to add themselves or anyone they think would be interested in this project.

With that in mind, I don't really know how projects work, and this is the first I've created. I'm mostly putting this up so other people looking for such a group will find me.

The "Profiles" added to this Project should be people who were immigrants to Wisconsin. In the case of entire families immigrating together, then it is fine to add people who immigrated as children.
