Vietnam Era Project

We are still collecting Vietnam Era Veteran forms and they will be kept in our files for future research. This project is to collect some genealogical, military and whatever memories and stories the veteran would like to share, and photo(s), especially in uniform. Our goal is an eventual publication. We are asking Vietnam War Era Veterans to fill out a form and send to us (click here). If you are a loved one or friend of a veteran who is no longer living, please fill out a form (click here) for the veteran to be included! (Note: The forms included here are fillable. Download the form to your computer first, then fill in the information and save it on your computer. Then, email the saved form to us or mail it to us or bring it in to ECGS during open hours.)

See more complete information on the Vietnam Era Project portion of the Military Special Interest Group. Forms are also available at our ECGS office during open hours and at the Charlotte Community Library. They are being distributed in libraries, American Legions, VFWs and other locations throughout the county.

Master List of Names for the Vietnam Era Project

See the list of names we have gathered of Vietnam Era Veterans that we believe are connected to Eaton County. This list shows whether a form (the form from the ECGS project) has been received. If a form has been received, it has either been received from the veteran if the veteran is living, or a friend or loved one if the veteran is not living, or from a Vietnam Committee member from reading an obituary.

Eaton Township Books

The old Eaton Township tax books are available for research at our library! Click here for a list.

Instructions for Searching Eaton County Digitized Newspapers!

We have instructions that describe how to use the Fulton History website to search the digitized Eaton County newspapers from the Eaton County History Newspaper Project. These Instructions are in a pdf file, which you may download if you wish. (Please note: Not all of the newspapers shown with browse links are currently working. Hopefully they will sometime in the future.) The List of Newspapers is a pdf file, which you may download if you wish. The Search-Examples is an Excel file and will immediately download to your computer if you click on this. This file gives examples of searches and you can then change the examples to your own criteria and copy them to the search box on the Fulton History website. If you do not have Microsoft Excel, or do not wish to download an Excel file, here is the Search-Examples pdf version of this file. To learn more about more about our project to digitize Eaton County Newspapers, visit . Donations gratefully appreciated.
