Extensive Genealogy Library

Mahaska County Historical Society maintains a genealogy library in the museum at Nelson Pioneer Farm. Our genealogy library features numerous Mahaska County record books, family history books, area newspaper clippings and intersting artifacts like letters from a Civil War captain to his bride describing his battles and life in the field. The library is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

 

Normal museum admission fees apply to library usage, or we can do the research for you at a fee of $10.00 per hour for a minimum of two hours payable in advance, plus copies and postage fees. Copies are available for 25¢ each if copied on the Historical Society's copier, or actual cost for copies that must be made elsewhere (i.e. larger documents). Postage will be billed at actual postage costs. For more information on the Mahaska County Historical Society's genealogy library, or to request research assistance, call (641) 672-2989.
