Online Resources

The Dane County Historical Society offers a number of online resources:

The Dane County Historical Society has very little information to help personal genealogists. Genealogists seeking specific family or ancestor information will not usually find indexed family information in the catalog and they are generally referred to the Dane County Register of Deeds. The Dane County Register of Deeds has records for births, deaths and marriages, as well as land records specific to Dane County. However, the Otto Schroeder Records Center is home to a number of plat maps, atlases, and indexes, and we welcome interested researchers to take a look as they continue their search.

To register a site as a historic place, visit the Wisconsin Historical Society for National Register information, research materials, and necessary forms to begin the nomination process. If the property is on federal or tribal land, this process starts with the Federal Preservation Office or Tribal Preservation Office.
