“Exploring the Dalby Database: Online Class”

The Dalby Database is RCHS’s first “Go To” website when doing research, about people, places, and events in Rice County and the surrounding area. Join Susan Garwood (RCHS Executive Director) and John and Jan Dalby, creators of the database, as we do a live demonstration of the website and show some tips and tricks to get the most out of the database.

This class will be held using Google Meet. To join, click this link: meet.google.com/zjv-kyov-fyh

People are encouraged to email RCSH at rchs@rchistory.org to register but it is not required.

Book Talk: “A Woman’s War, Too: Women at Work During World War II”, with author Virginia Wright-Peterson

Author Virginia Wright-Peterson will talk about her newly published book, “Woman’s War, Too” that shares dramatic stories of women discovering their own potential in a time of national need, surprising themselves and others— and setting the roots of second-wave feminism.  

Faribault’s own Liz Strofus is mentioned in the book as are many others. Participants are encouraged to share their own stories or stories of family members who made a difference, at home and abroad, during World War II.

This talk will be a Facebook Live event on the RCHS Facebook page at  https://www.facebook.com/rchistory

For more information about either event, please call us at 507-332-2121
