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 nominate a property to the National Register of Historic Places contact staff at the Division of Historic Preservation, Wisconsin Historical Society.

For specific inquiries or to make an appointment to visit the archives please Contact the Dane County Historical Society .
