American Legion Post 57

The Elgin Genealogical Society wishes to thank the American Legion Post 57 for allowing us access to their Deceased/Transferred File for the purpose of indexing the file. Particular thanks goes to Adjutant Wilfrid McWilliams whose support was greatly appreciated.

We also would like to thank the volunteers, without which this project could not have been completed. Thanks to Homer Moore, project coordinator, who kept us working and gave more hours to transcribing than anyone else; thanks to all the transcribers, proof readers and computer workers – Les Barnes, Virginia Blietz, David Gunn, Becky Higgins, Dana Olson, Carol Tuttle, Suzanne Kovac, Lonnie Richardson, Judy Van Dusen, Rhonda Weisschnur, Viola Willig and Emlie Zierk.
