The Page's Webmaster

Hello! My name is Dawn Durbin and I am the Webmaster of www.tomahawkpioneers.50megs.com. It has long been my dream to preserve the genealogy of our town, Tomahawk, Wisconsin.

I have sucessfully recovered from my surgery and am in the middle of Chemo therapy. Life is good and going well. I am starting back the bi-weekly newsletter and will soon change the pages on the site.




I will check all applications for completeness and catalogue. At the beginning of each year they will be sent to the Tomahawk Wisconsin Library so other researchers will have access to the data.

I am proud to say that I have accumulated more than a few applications. There are 30 people on the mailing list.

Applications are in the process of being reviewed and copied. They will be sent by the end of May 2006 to the Tomahawk, Wisconsin Public Library. This will be done on a yearly basis. Copies will also be retained by myself for back-up purposes.

I encourage all of you to complete your applications so you can be part of this process and preserve our family histories.
