Database

I have undertaken a project to create a searchable database of victims and survivors of the great fires. To my knowledge, no one has ever compiled a "master list" of known victims or survivors. My goal is to bring together data from many sources in one place in order to help researchers (particularly genealogists) trying to determine what may have happened to specific individuals living in the area at the time.

My first step in this project is to compile indexes of names from the various books and articles I have in my possession. I will then move on to other sources, including the 1870 census (starting with the Peshtigo/Oconto County rolls, and including other affected counties and townships as time allows).

I expect this project will take quite some time to complete, but I will attempt to post at least some data in the near future. If you would like to stay informed about the status of this project, I recommend that you join my mailing list.
