This past weekend we added some books to our NCGS library shelves. We visited the Historical Society of the Tonawanda’s and made a few purchases for our library shelves:
1. City of North Tonawanda Centennial Celebration 1897-1997
2. Centennial Magazine 1865-1965, North Tonawanda, NY
3. The Rand Family Left a Lasting Imprint on North Tonawanda — and the World!
4. Civil War Veterans of the Tonawandas by Stuart R. Brown (updated 2005)
The website for the Historical Society of the Tonawandas can be found here: https://www.tonawandashistory.org/index.html
