Ten years ago I was an English major, not a historian, so this is uncharted territory for me. But I am very eager to enlist the help of others in this project. Let me know by leaving a comment, if you are able to offer any assistance by way of names, dates, photos, etc.
We are attempting to compile a history of the Cape Girardeau Stake in honor of the 25th anniversary of its organization.
Primarily, we will be completing a history containing those who have served in stake callings during these years. It would be ideal to record any specific goals focused on, in addition to names and dates.
Secondarily, we will also attempt to collect personal memories in the form of quotes and stories from these individuals and their families. Any pictures, newspaper clippings, or already compiled histories for individual branches or wards would be helpful to collect, scan and document.
Finally, we hope to also record any major activities held and projects completed on the stake level.
This will take help from so many, and we already have a lot of people to thank for helping the project get started. So get out your old journals and scrapbooks and take a moment to remember all that we've been through together. Then let us know if you have any information to share.
