The University of Wisconsin System has created this digital collection of resources documenting Belgian settlers in Northeastern Wisconsin. Most of the original materials were gathered in the 1970s by the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay during a project "to record the undocumented historical, social, and cultural legacy of this unique ethnic group." At the search page, the collection is divided into three main areas: Architecture Survey, over 400 pictures of buildings; Oral History Recordings, approximately 50 interviews recorded between 1975 and 1976; and Immigration Histories, 3 book length documents of 100 - 200 pages, each viewable on the Web in an e-book format that allows text searching and leafing through images of the original pages. Keyword searches can also be performed across across all the materials.
