I found the Mower County Genealogy website this past weekend. I hadn't looked for one in the past for no good reason. I was delighted to find the biographies from the 1911 Mower County History and the fact that there is one for my great grandfather Edwin Price.

It contains information we never knew about and answered several family questions. As you well know, so many questions in the present coupled with missed opportunities in the past to obtain the answers define present day genealogical and family history research—at least for me.

If the thought should ever cross your mind that the work needed to maintain the website goes unnoticed, think again. This is one researcher most appreciative for the effort. My family is from LeRoy.

Thank you.

I must thank you for using your time to add and update the Mower site with the ... photos and documents.

What a fantastic resource you provide for those of us searching for clues in and around Austin. Your work is appreciated.

Have a great Sunday and thank you again for your help.

Thank you for adding my name to the Surname site, Kermit! I emailed Kathy yesterday . . . She's a real genea-fairy, like you.

My sister took her grandchildren to St. John's Cemetery in Elkton to see Mahlon and Mary Jane . . . graves. That's nine generations back, for them! That's spiritually powerful, thanks to folks like you. God bless you and your family and thanks for helping us,


Thanks for your great web site on Mower County!

I was delighted to find the obituary of an ancestor transcribed there, and really appreciate all your work.

Thanks for all your work to help others with Mower County genealogy.

I would love to have a job doing what you are doing. Isn't it wonderful that we now have computers and can save this information for future generations? I love it.

"I'm sitting here wiping away the tears from my eyes. I came across the Mower County Obituary Index by accident just now. . . it is a beautiful, clean, fresh looking, easy to read site, and I am so proud to see my family members so thoughtfully remembered.

"I am so grateful to you for all that you have done for me. And a huge bear hug to Mr. Kittleson too for setting up this great web site.

"Thank you both from the bottom of my heart."
