The following resources are online, but are not part of the USGenWeb collection for the most part. Please don’t forget to visit the Wisconsin USGenWeb Archives for Biographies, Obituaries and Vital Records. The Archives are broken down into individual counties.

Adoption, Birthparent Searchers
  • Our genealogy pages, queries, boards, email lists, etc. are not the place for this type of research. Genealogy research usually begins with a person’s grandparents to preserve the privacy of living persons. However, there are a tremendous number of sites on the internet that deal with adoption and birthparent research. and Cyndi’s List are only two of the excellent sites available to help you with your search.
