Over the years, the New Lisbon Library has become a natural and respected repository for archival materials relating to the history of New Lisbon and Juneau County, including in-depth genealogical records that are so popular with individuals researching their family roots. The library’s planned Archives and Genealogy Room will be a vital resource for research and interpretation of South Central Wisconsin’s proud past.
My father would be very pleased by collaborative efforts between the people of New Lisbon and the Ho-Chunk nation to preserve the collection. He would be even more pleased to learn that more of the collection can be open to the public and preserved in the county where the artifacts were first located. The collection’s display and retention were always his desire.
