Welcome To Marshall County Kansas
My name is Alice Allen, and I am the coordinator for Marshall County, Kansas. I was born in Oregon, but my mother was a native of Marshall County, as was her mother and her mother's mother. The first of my Kansas ancestors came to Marshall County in the mid 1850's. Others followed in the 1860's and early 1870's, so my Kansas roots go back a long way. My love for genealogy, and my Marshall County roots, have prompted me to help others in this way.
This page will grow as we go, but in order for it to grow, I need your help! If you have any records pertaining to Marshall County, won't you please let me know? We need non-copyrighted records (census indexes, cemetary, marriage, wills, etc.) to put on these pages to assist others in their search. If you can help in these or other ways, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your interest lie in another county in Kansas and you would be interested in helping it grow by either adopting it or contributing to the database, please contact Tom & Carolyn WARD. You may also subscribe to the KsGenWeb mailing list by sending your email request to email@example.com. In the body of the message (not the subject line) put "subscribe ksgen-l" (that's "el," not "one"). This is where the discussion of building KsGenWeb takes place.
