Greetings to all. 2005 has been a great year for us. The
website now has over 2100 pages of FREE information,
history, biographies and photos - and we're just getting
started! Many thanks to all of our contributors and
especially to Les Niemi for this months Tampico Tornado
transcriptions.

Our site count is up to 374,225. I have contacted as many
people as possible that are members of Classmates.com who
areTampico High School alumni. The response has been great.
If you know of anyone that may benefit or enjoy our site,
please pass the web address on to them. You can do this
directly from the web site -

I am in the process of transfering all of the Henry County
information over to the IL Trails - Henry County website.
http://iltrails.org/henry/ We will keep any "hard copy"
information we have archived in the "brick-and-mortor"
Tampico Hist. Soc. Museum in our Family History Library.

You can access the IL Trails home page
http://www.iltrails.org/ and select any county
from the menu list on the left side of page. Chris Walters
does a mars from the Tampico Tornado Newspapers which are
archived at our musem. We have recently acquired original
copies of 1876-1880 and 1882 - even the State archives do
not have these copies!

Below you will find the latest entries on the website for
November, 2005. You can also go to the "What's New"? page
of site for direct links to each entry.
