Got Arkansas roots? We need volunteers to Adopt a county, or work on State history. Past and Present industry, did you know Maybelline Cosmetics factory used to be in Little Rock? Or the defunct theme park Dogpatch USA based on the Li'l Abner comic strip? Crater of Diamonds? 7 mineral springs of Heber Springs?

Arkansas is rich in history and it really needs to be told.

 

A few pages we have are:

http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Arkansas

 http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Lunsford,_Arkansas

http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:1850_Boone_Township_Union_County_Arkansas_Index

I believe Carrie is working on collecting pages also.

So Please contact us. Arkansas needs her favorite sons and daughters.

The following Arkansas Counties are ready for adoption. Arkansas, Ashley, Baxter, Craighead, Miller, and Yell.

Also looking for AR folklore, tall tales, legends, campfire stories, and other things that go bump in the night.

I have a couple of projects going in Miller County... Ok the Boggy Creek Monster is personal to me. He might be related. My parents knew most of the names that were mentioned in the movie. And the Ford family taht was attacked in the house turned out to be some of my Dad's unknown family from Little River County.

If you have a love of AR history, please join us.

I was raised in Cross County i'd love to take care of looking up information on it but i will admit i'd need some help with my portion due to the hours i work
Christy, I'll get you set up. I'm on limited access due to my computer being down. Library, 3 hrs a day, 5 days.
Chrissy, added your name to Cross County! Thank you for joining. I"ll check back tomorrow.
