Isle Royale families have strong ties to Island

Isle Royale, the small island laying about 15 miles offshore from Grand Portage, was once home to a thriving community of fishermen and their families, as well as resort and cabin visitors.  Isle Royale has been the summer home for many generations. Those connections are explored in this series by WTIP's Rhonda Silence. 

Part one looks at how families first came to the Island.
