Wichita & Sedgwick County History Book
We have recently discovered
a great history resource in our own Wichita Public Library. It is the Wichita and Sedgwick County History Book.
Now it was not lost, hidden, or is it new. Most of us just didn't know it existed. Michelle Enke, our Local History Librarian, brought this interesting book to our attention recently. Learn about area history from a two-volume collection of published articles from the 1880s to 1932. The WGS has indexed the book and includes that index online for WGS Members. You may find your ancestors in it. Learn about it here
– FOR WGS MEMBERS ONLY.
