I added a video to You Tube, well, basically a slideshow that consists of old photos. Most of them show the cities of Clare, Harrison and Farwell. The show lasts about 6 minutes and music in the background. The photos are primarily from the collection Forrest Meek gave to Mid-Michigan Community College. Here’s the link to the show: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTX84V-VZfM

Thank you for sharing the YouTube Video! Very nicely done. Most of my family on my mother’s side still reside in the Mid-Michigan area and I shared your blog and the video with them. I grew up in the Vassar area then the family moved to Alpena when I was 13 and graduated from there. I currently reside in Orlando (almost 17 years now) and I ran across this post while working on a wordpress site that I manage for another small town and it came across the Zemanta suggestions and I immediately had to check it out! Again, thank you for sharing. It’s great that history is not lost and still admired by many… especially for the small towns of America!!
Very nice. Spent last week up there doing research. In all my days of searching I have yet to have found any photographs of Meredith. My paperwork and letters narrowed my ***Grandfather in Meredith in 1889 and 1890 for certain. My best guess is he left in 1893 as he was a telegrapher and Railroad Agent. The depot being removed that year and then finding him the following year in Standish village. Your video gives a good impression of the life around him at that time. Less all the violence and corruption of Meredith any how.
Thanks for another great post. Always look forward to them.
