Hello Everyone, :o)

I'm not sure if this information has been posted to the list, but maybe this might be useful for others. Listed below is a running list I have of places you can write to for obtaining information about our circus families. For myself, I have had great sucess with "The Hertzberg Circus Collection" and "Circus World Museum". 

Kindest Wishes, 

Linda Edwards {Searching for Mills Brothers Circus Employees after 1954}
