With our church we found eligibility based upon paid staff. Organizations without paid funds didn't / don't qualify with current rules.

Michael Ostertag, Thank You. Likewise, I would also like to somehow be more involved.A suggestion I am making with all the groups I am involved, we need to better communicate articles in works, and "calls for photos" and other documentation, so we can best illustrate history. We all love photos and maps, and that seems ever more important with younger members who didn't see it first hand.

Much thanks to Dave Young for all of his efforts over the years and for his invaluable help during our transition!

How about a life membership!
Martin A. Johnson (MAJ)
04:58:55
I agree with a life membership option. Several other historical groups I'm in offer this, as well as sponsor memberships to recruit new members, and also company vet. employee and disability rates at a slightly reduced price.

I recall reading that donations to the Jim Scribbins Memorial Library Fund are discouraged with no pending needs at the Milwaukee Public Library. Has any thought been given to raising funds for projects at the Barriger Library? They have a large collection of Milwaukee Road records. For instance, it would be very helpful to have the AFE files there digitized and easily available to researchers.

how about rails who worked former Milw lines, after the demise of the Milwaukee Road?
Mark Borleske
05:13:08
what is the status of the Milwaukee Public Library and research access to the Milwaukee Road collection ?
Michael Ostertag
05:14:05
That is a great question Mark!
Michael Ostertag

What about access to the archives in St.Louis as well?

Barriger stores the AFEs off site. I suspect they would be interested in working with MRHA to fund an effort to digitize them. They've been doing a lot to put things online in the past few years.

feature. The gentleman who mentioned the windspeed indicator at Beverly, WA made a good point about having some wind warning device in operation. I remember clearly the incident where #200 lost intermodal containers/
