The Minster Historical Society and Museum houses a funeral card file collection of over 20,000 names. This information is very valuable to genealogists and is an extremely busy spot in the Museum. A special thank you to Mary Knapke for keeping these cards organized and up to date.
Donation of these cards at any time is greatly appreciated.
Thanks to an anonymous donation, Minster Newspapers dating back to 1888 have been converted into PDF format so they can be viewed from anywhere in the world!
