In each, ALL of the county information is present. However, some of the extra info such as the state, U.S. and World maps are not included. Also in the Geo A Ogle atlases, the misc. info from the Supplement is not present , none of which have information about the county.

There will be other County atlases in the future as I am trying to acquire all from the Upper Midwestern States as I can find and afford.


A word about my desire to make these available to all at a reasonable cost. Many hours have been spent finding, scanning, cleaning up the scanned image and formatting the county histories. The price is very reasonable compared to the money and time spent making these available. I would ask you to please not make copies for your friends or others. Help me break even. :-)
