New Contributing Organization to Minnesota Reflections: Marshall County Historical Society


War Service Record Book for World War I, Marshall County, Minnesota

And Marshall County Historical Society makes 190... 

We are so excited to announce the addition of our 190th partner to Minnesota Reflections. The Marshall County Historical Society joins 189 other organizations working to tell the story of the people, places, and experiences of the state of Minnesota. Marshall County's contribution is an important War Service Record Book from World War I. This bound ledger book filled with pages of information on World War I service from Marshall County residents will be of interest to genealogy buffs as well as those interested in the history of the First World War. 

The Marshall County Historical Society, located at the Settler’s Square Museum in Warren, Minnesota, contains artifacts, historical documents, and pictures relating to county history dating back to the mid-1800s. It is their mission to collect, preserve and educate others about the rich history of Marshall County. Their goal is to highlight the achievements and struggles of those that helped build Marshall County, including railroads, agriculture, schools, churches and every day activities. The MCHS contribution to Minnesota Reflections consists of the Marshall County War Service Record which was compiled by the Marshall County Draft Board. This book contains a summary of the records of active service of men from Marshall County, during WWI.
