Genealogical Resources

Call for an appointment with our research assistants

Genealogy is one of the fastest growing hobbies in the country.  We are so fortunate that our new

office addition allows us to better serve those who are seeking genealogy information.

We have volunteers who will do research. For said services, a free will offering to the Society

or the purchase of a Sibley County Historical Society membership is requested.

If you are interested in doing your own research, an appointment

can be made for a volunteer to be available to assist you.

The fee for this service is $5.00 per hour plus $.50 per copy of requested material. 

Genealogy requests must be madeby calling the Museum and leaving a message.  

If there is no answer, leave a message including your name and phone number

and a volunteer will call you back. You may also send in your request via email here.
