With about a year remaining before the observance of the centennial of the U.S. entrance into WW I, the Logan County Genealogical and Historical Society is requesting help with identifying the attached unidentified photographs of soldiers and inductees from Logan County.

Researcher, Bill Donath, is working on a book about the Logan County activities that took place during that time in support of the war effort and the men and women who served in some capacity during the war. The book is nearly complete and is planned for availability this Fall.

Anyone wishing to submit photographs or stories about the men and women who served during WW I can submit those to Bill Donath at LCGHS, 114 N. Chicago St., or by email: wdonath01@hotmail.com. Bill will be available at LCGHS on Fridays from 11 am to 4 pm. Please contact Bill before bringing items to LCGHS. Phone: 732-9881 and leave a message.
