Kathryn Otto is the new Archivist at the Area Research Center (ARC) and University Archives housed in the Chalmer Davee Library at the University of Wisconsin – River Falls. A news story in the New Richmond [WI] News tells about the free classes she is inviting people to attend. These are for those interested in “learning about the archives, doing historical research, or seeking ancestors.”
I got to know Kathie when she was Head of Reference at the Library and Archives of the Minnesota Historical Society. The folks across the border are lucky to have her. If you have family in the Wisconsin counties of Burnett, Polk, St. Croix, or Pierce be sure to schedule a research visit to the ARC. You may also find some connections to folks across the St. Croix River in Minnesota. It’s been a while since I have researched there, but it is a great place to do so. Click here for more details.
