    Hi, Trying to find a family history biography that was written by a Great Bend, KS citizen: Ray “Jiggs” Schulz. The biography is about Johann Schulz. found a reference to the biography in Find A Grave’s info about Johann Schulz. Do you have this book or know anything about where it resides?

    Thank you,
    Rebecca Rose
