that information is not readily available, or may not be available and we don't have time to go to archives in the locations in respective cities. you might go to the appropriate city and request microfilm and courthouse records/newsprint archives on the subject. Anthony.

Thanks for trying, Anthony.

I have gone through several search engines and for some reason, the names are not made available.

Many of the other companies can be traced from European
roots to America. Names, dates and other pertinent info
can be found. But, of course, I would pick Lester Pianos
to need information. LOL

Many thanks, Anthony.

you have to go to archives in the city in which the business was created in.

that will take time and some $$..and yes some do publish family info...some do not for one reason or another.

what are you doing? a paper or something for the PTG (guild) or what?

Hi, Anthony,

I am a very late blooming, now-published writer.

I am attempting a short novel about "The Lake in the Woods", which is located in the most northern tip of MN.,
and into Canada. The story spans three generations. In 1910 a fire destroyed almost 400 thousand acres and
killed over 400 people. Thought the struggle to recover from such devastation would make a great backdrop for a
story.

Never realized there would be so much research for authenticity.

I write for the sheer joy of writing. Don't have a clue what I will do with it once it is finished.

But, thanks for asking.
DJ.
