NEMGS is Seeking Vets Photos

      November 1, 2018 will be the last day to get your ancestor's WWI photo in our upcoming book ALPENA'S SERVICE IN THE GREAT WAR.  We are nearing the editing phase of the book and this will take some time to incorporate all the pictures. The next step is to get it printed.
     We would ideally like a photo of your soldier in uniform, but a wedding portrait works as most men married within 1-5 years after they returned home. We define an "Alpena Veteran" as an Army, Navy, Marine, or Coast Guard man or woman who enlisted, and Alpena County received credit for their enlistment, or a veteran who is buried in Alpena County. If you have such a photo and wish to share it for this publication please contact Bob Lakin at or RM Guthrie at
