738. Want To Visit A Great Museum?

     On Tuesday I had an opportunity to visit the best county museum in the state, maybe the nation. This is the Dubois County Museum in Jasper, Indiana. It's also the largest in the state.
     Located in a donated former factory, this museum is totally funded and staffed by volunteers. It contains about everything you would want in a facility, and you really need to take your family or group for a visit.
     As I travel around the Hoosier state, I hear a lot, and I mean a lot, of officers whining about the lack of volunteers and donations for genealogical and historical societies. Maybe those officers need to visit Dubois County and ask them what they are doing right.
     They also have a great website (Google it!), and a great genealogy collection. Have Dubois roots?
