Our library and museum contain a unique mixture of information sources that are primarily about Warren County, Iowa.
There are scrapbooks and files of obituaries, towns, schools, churches, civic and social organizations, and events.
There are county records such as tax records, probates, wills, civil court cases, Warren County census, atlases, cemetery records and history books.
There are collections of clippings, photos, and family histories.

We are in the process of indexing and scanning these records into our server.  We are putting the indexes on line as we complete them.  You may search these records on our Index Page.  Our initial project was the obituaries. We developed a program in-house to index and scan them in.  We are making this program available to other Libraries and Museums. If you are interested in this program, please e-mail us and we will send you instructions and a link to download it.  We have indexed over 40,000 obituaries.
