1/29/98 : Carol "Ganster" MacDonald Tonawanda, comments: "My fondest memories to this day, are the families, namely Maryan & Marcia Traun, Carvers, Guenthers, Staleys, Tuckers, Hogans, Ames, Webbs, Mitchell, and of course my parents, Mabel (mac) & Bill MacDonald. It was the warmth of all these people and so many more I could go on all night, that made Grand Island a Grand Place!"

1/27/98 : Carol Reeves comments: Have found your site very interesting and would like to be able to access more information about it if possible. My grandmother's parents built a home there in 1895 and four of their children were born there. One of my grandmother's brothers, born there in 1897, wrote a rather lengthy "Huck Finn" type story of growing up on the island. He talks about different families and areas. I have edited his manuscript and often thought about whether or not it would be historically meaningful and worth publishing. I would appreciate any more information concerning the island names, postcards, maps, etc. If anyone has any information about the island from 1895 to about 1940 I would love to hear from you. I'm also interested in the history of Edgewater Resort started by a German who wanted to start an excursion park on the island. He speaks of families by the names of Grellinger, Carroll, Voestch and Long! Our family name was Lattner. I would like to hear from anyone who remembers these names or my familie's name."
1/25/98 : Vincent Randy Cologne Germany,"comments: I got to spend some time at my now parents-in-law's, the Robinsons. My first stay on GI was in July of 1990 when I came as an exchange student for a month. It is indeed a grand place to live"

Finally got a chance to check out "our" website. The picture is perfect and I can't wait to send it to some of the people I have met online who have heard of Grand Island, Nebraska and are suprised to hear of Grand Island, NY. I am so proud of our unique community and now have something else to boast about. Keep up the good work.
