Excellent! The staff assisted with locating an obituary in a La Crosse, WI newspaper for an ancestor who died in La Crosse but buried at Woodbine Cemetery in Valley City. They scanned the obituary and funeral notices and sent to the sexton at Woodbine who then sent to me via text message. My family and I are happy to have this information! The staff at Barnes County Historical Museum and the sexton at Woodbine provided excellent service! Highly recommended...and thank you!
