Oconto County genealogy (General Discussion)

A little over a year ago the Oconto County Gen Web site closed down. There was almost unlimited information on the site about Oconto County and the people who lived in it. Lots of history. Everybody keeps saying it was some kind of technical glitch. I even heard from one who said it was hacked and deleted. No matter, it was a big loss for those looking to find information on their old time relatives.

The site was hosted by Rootsweb. They had done an entire Oconto County site backup in the middle of August 2016. I just discovered that this morning, thanks to the snowstorm and not even trying to get out today. The search engines on the backup don't work but most of the links do and one can scan through the many pages. Kind of like looking for a needle in a haystack. More fun this way when you do find something.

According to Rootsweb, they are working on getting the site up and running with everything working. When that happens, then the updating can start by people submitting information. Anyway, here's the link.

Wheels --- Thanks much for posting this! I had been checking periodically, but had forgotten in the last few months. You right --- this is a great site and was sorely missed!! Glad this much progress has been made.
