The Wisconsin Historical Society Library & Archives:  What is in it?  Everything!!

by George Findlen
The holdings of interest to genealogists in the Wisconsin Historical Society Library and Archives (two repositories in one building), and the services they provide to make your contact with them a pleasant one will be presented.  The two repositories, together, hold one of the five largest genealogy collections in the U.S.  George demonstrates how to locate family histories, compiled genealogies, newspapers, pre-1907 Wisconsin vital records, civil war records, and more through the on-line digital catalogs for the library, the archives, and digital records made available at the Wisconsin History web site.  The talk concludes with a description of the microfilm equipment visitors can use, and other services provided by the Library and Archives to support users both on-site and from afar.
George Findlen is a retired academic administrator and faculty member.  His genealogical articles have appeared in the National Genealogical Society Quarterly and journals in New England, Louisiana, New Brunswick, and Quebec.
