The Stuff I Find

I’ve been cleaning up my computer files at the museum this morning, mostly just moving things into the appropriate folders.  There were quite a few miscellaneous histories floating around; some transcriptions of notes museum staff have taken; some mini interviews we have had with visitors.  I thought I’d share one of the documents I found.  Jan, our Executive Director, made note of  a list of names found on a certificate in the  entrance of St. Mary’s Russian Orthodox Church in Elmdale Township in 1996.  The congregation has since disbanded.  The last I heard, the dome of the church had been removed and placed in the church cemetery.  I’m not sure what has happened with the building.  Here is the list Jan made:
