It's a pleasure to be here working at the Records Office. This job once belonged to Linda Martin, who held the position for over twenty years; I'm sure you all know her. With Linda's recent and unfortunate passing, I, a close friend, have taken her place. I can't promise to do as good a job as Linda, but I do intend to do my very best.

Riverblossom Hill's presiding prefect is Mayor Morty Roth, and the current Parish Keeper and resident genealogist is Betty Goldstein. The parish branch of the State Horticultural Society is headed by Rose Greenman.
Residents are kept informed by the local, daily newspaper, La Roche Times. Archival records of the newspaper are kept on microfilm and can be accessed at the State Office of Records.
Obituaries on all residents who have moved on from this life can be found at the State Coroner's Office. Deceased residents of La Roche Parish make their final resting place at Strawberry Hill Cemetery in Riverblossom Hills.
Riverblossom Hills was founded by farmer Armando Martin, who settled here after moving from France. Eventually, small areas were carved out for living by Julien Charrier, who moved to the area from Quebec, Canada. Julien named these communities after his two daughters, Iota and Ida, who both succumbed to illness before Julien and his wife, Emeline, left Canada.
The areas, and the surrounding miles of farmland, were eventually combined into the small parish of La Roche.
