Welcome to Lindeman Archives

Thank you for making me feel that it is worth my time and effort to keep this site going, there has been over 100 hits on the old sites per month since I started tracking it at the end of  July 2012. This new site with all the added information and photos I have added, I am sure there will be something for everyone.  I have added a lot of photos to the History and Implement pages, most of which were taken by Jesse Lindeman himself.  I have all these photos and am trying to share them with everyone that is interested in the Lindeman Crawler and family.  There is very little commentary on the pages right now, I will be adding more photos and commentary to the pages as time goes by. Click on any of the photos and they will take you to a new page with the same type of photos or take you to a enlarged version of that photo. On the new page click the photo and it will take you to a full size rendition, the photos are as I scanned them, as I get time they will be replaced with retouched ones along with commentary. Click your back button and it will take you back to the point your were at to continue.

If you have any comments leave them and I will try to give you the best answer I can.  Please click the comment link at the top of the page, telling me what you would like to see.  As I update any of the pages  I will post what I have done to keep you informed.

Thank you again for visiting the Lindeman Archives Site.
