         ONE-ROOM SCHOOL HOUSE MEMORY PROJECT, ADD A MEMORY TO THIS COLLECTION

The VBRGS is seeking memories from people who attended these rural schools in Michigan.  If you attended a rural school, or have a
memory from an ancestor, we would like to archive it for this collection and make it available to other researchers.  This contribution
would be open to the public and could be used in future VBRGS projects.
