This year fund drive donations will be looking at updating two computers and our server. We save photos and research items digitally to a server but, due to storage availability the computer and server need to be replaced . Plans are to, also, place census records, birth records, marriage, birth and death indexes on a separate computer that researchers would be able to access in the research room.

Another much needed items is additional lighting. Due to of lack of track lighting in the gallery the exhibits are not always lit as well as they could be. We would like to purchase additional track lightings  making it easier to read signage and examine exhibits. These track lights will have  special filters to protect the artifacts from light damage.

The response is always gratifying. Your historical society is always striving to improve your experience when researching or visiting. Your donations to the Roseau County Historical Society fund drive helps us to do these things.

In 2011, we had three major exhibits. The main exhibit was a Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit New Harmonies: Celebrating American Roots Music.  This is the third time Roseau County Historical Society has had the honor of being a site host for a Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit. We also partnered with the Roseau Public Library for a North Dakota Museum of Art Exhibit titled Marking the Land a photo exhibit by photographer John Dow. In March we celebrated Women's History Month by honoring a group of women from around the county with the One Woman 2011 and Women in Government programs and exhibits.

We will again celebrate Women in History starting with a ribbon cutting March 4 were we will honor the women who have made a difference in their townships and communities. The townships and cities were asked to select a woman has lived within the community that deserves recognition for their services within the area.
