Thanks so much for posting this. Just like everyone else, I am at a dead end in some places in my family genealogical history and am in need of suggestions for where to look to move on.
i.e. - I went to Google Books and typed in "Coulter family of Ravenna Nebraska".
The first link to show up on the list was about some people in my family. Cool!
I also did a search on "Ravenna Centennial" and got the names and pictures of 3 books the Ravenna Historical and Genealogical Society has published specifically for the historical families of Ravenna. I have spoken with a few people who say that this book holds much information on 4 different lines in my family that all have been living in Ravenna for 200-100 years...Celmers, Coulters, Starks, and Coultons, as well as a few other families that our ladies married into such as Herverts, Maghers, and more. Unfortunately the Ravenna Centennial is out of print, but I can order it on the borrowing system from my library. Unless anyone knows someone that has this book and is willing to do look up. It would then be much appreciated if you contact me. :D
Thank you so much for the great idea.
