Sources and Attributes of Website Information

The information in the various documents on this website was obtained primarily through research of microfilms produced by the State Historical Society of Wisconsin and other sources, and through research of documents and records available in the Burlington Historical Society Museum files, at libraries, and at other places. With a few exceptions, the photographs are from the Society's collection of donated photographs, negatives, albums, and other images. Because the research is on-going, the information is subject to change.

Most of the information has been recorded on a selective basis and in summary or capsule form, rather than in its entirety. Those wishing to obtain a copy of the source document(s) or original article(s) can consult the microfilms or other indicated sources. A list of the sources is available on the "References and Sources" page of this website, which also includes a list of the "Abbreviations" used in the various documents on the website.

While we would like to be able to provide copies of articles, we do not have the volunteer help necessary to do that. The microfilms are generally available at the Burlington Public Library and at the State Historical Society of Wisconsin at Madison. Some are also available at the University of Wisconsin - Parkside Library and its Research Center. Depending on the policies and practices of your local library, the microfilms may also be available through your library's reference section. There may be a cost involved in obtaining some microfilms.

Information on the location and availability of other documents and records listed on the "References and Sources" page of this website is included, to the extent possible, in the descriptions of those sources. There may be other locations where the documents and records are available.

GENEALOGICAL GLEANERS AWARD

The BURLINGTON HISTORICAL SOCIETY website has been awarded the GENEALOGICAL GLEANERS AWARD, which is given to websites that feature free vital information for the online genealogical community. It recognizes the hard work performed by volunteers in bringing genealogical data to the web for the use of others.
