  • Rick Dahl

    I am tracking Louis Waingsalbom, He was my grandfathers business partner in Cripple Creek Colorado in 1905. Mr. Waingsalbom is listed as Deceased in the California Death Index on November 1, 1948 in Siskiyou. He seems to have spent his last years in Siskiyou county. The 1930 Federal Census shows him living in Happy Camp with the occupation of gold miner. Is there someone that can research his doings in Sisikyou?
    His name is spelled several different ways: Waingsalbom, Weingsolbam, Weingsolbom. Wainsgalbon, and Loris Wainsgalbom.
    The 1930 Census shows Waingsalbom as married I did not find his wife.
    Contact: Rick Dahl, f.d.dahl at
    Thank you

    Any news about the 2010 Jamboree? I assume it’s on for this weekend, as I see it listed in the calendar. But I can’t find any details. Anyone?

  • Dr. P. Dogsbody

    Ignorant boy from up in British Columbia, Canada. What/where is Happy Camp? It sounds like a beautiful, artistic and loving community. Is it a recognized town? Privately owned? Would really like to see a “who Happy Camp is” page on your website. Also, really would love to see a picture of the giant dream catcher.
    Thanks, Peace.

  • Rawn Donaldson

    Hello, my name is Rawn Donaldson. I’m working with a local AIM chapter in Indianapolis, IN. Our local leader is looking into taking on building the world’s largest dream catcher in support of The Longest Walk as well as many other native efforts. Any assistance or wisdom on this topic is greatly appreciated.
    For all our relations,
    Rawn Donaldson

    I was in the 1987 siege with the Grangeville, Idaho fire crew. That was some kind of fire that I will never forget. If someone out there can share some of the memory please, here is my hotmail address.

  • Pat Topel

    I used to spend some summers in Happy Camp in the 50’s and I love the beauty of the area. So I love reading the local news and enjoy your website. But I would love it if you would have regular news about Bigfoot. I know there are a lot of sightings in that area and I am a believer. So many people have seen them and want to read news about them. Even if someone just finds tracks. So please consider this.
    Keep up the good work. I am Pat Topel from Branson, Mo email is ftopel@centurytel,net thanks.

  • Tammy Oveross

    Hello, I am trying to find any information about my husbands family that was living in the Happy Camp area during the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Does anyone remember or know any of the Overosses? We are specifically trying to find Mike’s first cousins, the children of Kathleen Oveross Sharpe.
    Thank you!

  • I am looking for information on Harold N Ives. He was a dentist in Happy Camp. Before he moved to Happy Camp he lived in Cloverdale, CA. Our firm designed his dental office and residence in Cloverdale. There will be a lecture on both of the projects we did for Dr. Ives in Cloverdale and we are seeking to find out a little more about him after he moved away. If anyone knows the whereabouts of his children that would be very special. They may remember things about the events leading up to the design of these two remarkable projects.
    Sincerely yours,
