Genealogy Onsite Resources

In 2003, the Genealogy and History room was designated the Lincoln County Genealogy & History Center. We’re deeply grateful to many people, but especially to Carolyn Kelsey and Joyce Brown for their outstanding efforts in organizing the resources of the Genealogy & History Center. We are located on the second floor of Skidompha, and are accessible via stairs or elevator.  Wi-Fi is available in this section as well as one library computer.  See Mrs. Maclachlan or another librarian for the genealogy computer password.

All Genealogy Center materials, with the exception of 929.26 books, are restricted to library use only. Many parts of the collection are being digitized; see our Genealogy Digital Resources for information and links.
