Our museum houses a funeral card file collection of over 20,000 names.  This
information is most valuable to genealogists and is an extremely busy spot at our
museum. A special thank you to Mary Knapke for keeping these up to date.
Please keep those cards coming.

   Minster Newspapers from 1899 to 1964 are stored in PDF files at the museum and on our website  to be researched.  Issues from 1964 to 2011 are also in our care in two forms, bound in books or loose papers. We are currently searching for a process that won't break the bank. With the proper scanner and a dedicated volunteer group, we have high hopes of adding more years to our website..  This will not be accomplished without a cost; equipment will need to be purchased and part of the over-sized papers will need to transferred by an out side source.
