The Historical Museum at St. Gertrude has announced an upcoming third volume to “Our Story,” the collection of first-person histories that celebrates local families and their ancestors’ lives in the Cottonwood, Keuterville, Greencreek, Ferdinand, and Salmon River areas.
The first two volumes are now in their third printing and the books’ success has inspired a third volume. “People are excited about it because it is about them,” says Debra Graham, a Museum staff member.
Submissions are now being accepted for the third volume. The main criteria for submitted articles is that the family should have roots in the Cottonwood, Keuterville, Greencreek, Ferdinand, or Salmon River areas. Submissions can be up to 1,000 words and can include up to three images. Please submit on a disk or email to Shirley Gehring at email@example.com or Historical Museum, 465 Keuterville Road, Cottonwood, ID, 83522. Submissions must be received by July 1, 2017. Any questions may be directed to Shirley at 208-962-2053.
