Denmark Items We Are Searching For To Add To The Archives

• We are searching for a photograph of a gravestone of a fallen Civil War soldier. The gravestone was once in the cemetery at Berry Road. If you have a photograph of this gravestone, we’d like to talk to you.

• The Denmark Historical Society archives does not have a complete set of Town Reports between the years 1807 – 1899. We have no town reports for years 1807 – 1860. We have a complete set for the years 1880 to the present time.

• We do not have a complete set of Denmark High School and Denmark Grammar School Yearbooks – We have a few in our collection, but not a complete set for either school. The archive holds a 1924 handmade yearbook for the high school.

The high school yearbooks went by a variety of names: The Den of Mark, The Mt. Pleasant Echo, The Danelaw and The Dehian.

The Grammar School yearbook went by the name “Denmark Grammar School Annual.”

The years we do not have a yearbooks:

Before 1928

• We are seeking a copy of Mayflower Families Through Five Generations VOLUME 2. The copy from our 16 volume set is missing.
