Do you personally know something about the subjects I wrote about? Did I get something wrong or do you have something to add? Feel free to contact me!
I'd be happy to give you attribution (by full name, initials, handle, or anonymously) and even discuss these topics with you. I even collect oral history, call 651-212-5126 and record your narrative. Don't be shy! Just make sure it is related to the topics on this site. You can always re-record or fall back to using the contact form instead. Just be sure to explicitly state your contact info and whether or not I have permission to post your narrative in my online notes or blog. Your contact info is not made public, it's just so if I have any follow-up questions.
Locations include eastern Nebraska (Fremont, Omaha, Schuyler, ...) and the Minnesota Twin Cities metro area (Hugo, White Bear Lake, Minneapolis, Saint Paul ...). Buildings and industries are also covered such as Hamm's Brewery in Saint Paul, Minnesota and Hotel Pathfinder in Fremont, Nebraska).
