Dalby Database History
Some people may think they have a crazy hobby, but one
that has made them many new friends. John suffered a
heart attack in 1981. Was unable to return to work.
While recovering his cousin called and ask for some
family history information. So he got interested in
this and joined the Rice County Genealogy Society.
He started walking cemeteries in 1983 and Jan joined
him when she could. They
finished Rice County and in doing so, they decided to
walked other cemeteries in selected counties in
This lead to indexing history books, plats, and newspaper articles. Recording church records, marriages, birth, Civil War veterans and city directories of Rice County.
