Genealogy Collection

  1. We have materials for genealogical research in the United States only.

  2. The collection emphasizes states that have had a heavy emigration to Kansas, especially New England and Midwestern states. We have very little for states west of Kansas.

  3. In the Genealogy Collection, you will find:

    • Census records on microfilm, related indexes, and some Soundex rolls.

    • Family histories (only those received as gifts)

    • Books containing vital records (births, marriages, and deaths), probate records, immigration lists, land records, tax lists, cemetery records, church records, etc.

    • State, county, and town histories

    • Military records and pension lists

    • Cultural and ethnic group histories

    • Indexes, atlases, directories and other sources relevant for genealogists

  4. The Kansas Reference Collection contains many books of interest to genealogists also. The history and biography sections are the most likely to be helpful to genealogists.

For more information, or if you have questions, call the Genealogy desk at (316) 261-8509.
