If you researching ancestors in Wisconsin, you will want to check out the Wisconsin Historical Society website.

Click on genealogy in the navigation bar to go to some of the amazing resources they have available:
  • Pre-1907 vital records (literally millions of birth, death and marriage records!)
  • More than 150,000 obituaries and biographical sketches published before 1999
  • Memoirs and other material written by early Wisconsin residents
  • Civil War rosters and research images
  • Historic images

Historical materials include diaries (including one written by a member of the Lewis and Clark expedition), a map and atlas collection, county histories and much more!
