  • FAMILY HISTORIES TO BE ARCHIVED AT THE MUSEUM: Hard copies (printed pages) can be mailed directly to the TAHS, P.O. Box 154, Tampico, IL 61283, ATTENTION: Denise McLoughlin. They will be placed in our Family History Files and made available to the public. Hard copies cannot be uploaded to the website.
  • FAMILY HISTORIES TO BE UPLOADED TO WEB SITE: You can email Family Histories and photos to tampicohistoricalsocieity@gmail.com . Projects that are emailed will be uploaded to TAHS website. However, they will not be printed out and placed in Family History Archives at the TAHS museum. If you would like your photos and Family History to be archived at the museum AND uploaded to website, you will need to follow both instructions listed above - i.e., you will need to both snail-mail copies to TAHS museum AND email to me. (This is to avoid the added expense to us to print out the histories. Thank you for your cooperation)
  • You may also submit your Family History/Photos on a CD. These can be uploaded to site AND filed in the TAHS Archives!
  • Please include contact information for other researchers. Thank you

Les Niemi recommends the following: remove anyone and their descendants who is still living or simply change their given name to "Living" so as to protect the identity of these folks (credit card companies and others use one's mother's maiden name as a way of identifying you as "the real McCoy.")
