Macomb, IL – Rich Egger's guest is Bob Fischer of the McDonough County History Consortium.

The consortium was formed to improve communication among the multitude of local history groups in the county. The consortium also promotes local history through its website.

At least a dozen groups are involved with the consortium. Each maintains its own identity. Fischer says the consortium is always interested in getting more groups involved.

The consortium does not get involved in events but does try to help local groups connect to work on projects.
