Of long-lost uncles and mysterious windfalls

In our own back yard:

When four Los Angeles private detectives contacted the Rock County Archives & Research Center, archives manager Ruth Anderson knew there had to be a sizable estate involved.

"We had to locate a daughter of a daughter of a daughter of an ancestor who came to Beloit early on," Anderson said.

The real fun usually begins with a bit of work, but what a payoff. Think it will never apply to you?
Those erecting a memorial marker of a noted mathematician in Ireland recently contacted the center trying to trace descendants.

RTWT. And next March 17, throw a parade, will ya?
