GCHS saving township history
Members of the Green County Genealogical Society have been contacting Town boards starting about 8 years ago, asking for access to these historical records to preserve that information. Teams of GCGS volunteers have scanned records from the earliest up to about 1940. Later records are not available to the public because of privacy statutes.
MONROE — Town records existing as far back as about 1850 still exist, in varying degrees of completeness and condition. Forgotten, they are relegated to storage in the back corners of unused areas, and deteriorate.
