Wise Words

  • He who has no fools, knaves, or beggars in his family was begot by a flash of lightning.
    English Proverb

  • We are the children of many sires, and every drop of blood in us in its turn ... betrays its ancestor.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

  • In all of us there is a hunger, marrow deep, to know our heritage - to know who we are and where we came from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning. No matter what our attainments in life, there is still a vacuum, an emptiness, and the most disquieting loneliness.
    Alex Haley, Roots

  • There are only two lasting bequests we can give our children - one is roots, and the other, wings.
    Hodding S. Carter

  • Why waste your money looking up your family tree? Just go into politics and your opponents will do it for you.
    Mark Twain

  • Life is lived forwards, but understood backwards.
    Unknown

  • We've uncovered some embarrassing ancestors in the not-too-distant past. Some horse thieves, and some people killed on Saturday nights. One of my relatives, unfortunately, was even in the newspaper business.
    Jimmy Carter
    Former U.S. President

Yearbook Inventory

The following yearbooks are held at the NWMGS library. We are always looking to expand our collection and are very appreciative of any donations. The library has the ability to scan and save copies of yearbooks as well - so if you have one that you would like to share, but not give away permanently, we would be happy to preserve it digitally and return the physical copy back to you. We are also collecting CLASS PICTURES. We have over 100 of these available at the library, but are always looking for more!
