Warren County Iowa Genealogical Society



    Introduction to Warren County Genealogical Research

    Over the years members of the Warren County Genealogical Society have actively collected a number of resources for genealogists and have published several books including a 1987 History of Warren County, an Atlas Compilation and Index, cemetery gravestone surveys, and several record transcription publications.

    The Indianola Public Library has a collection of the WCGS informaton, but the major part of the WCGS collection is at the Warren County Historical Research Library. Many Warren County materials can also be found at the Iowa Genealogical Society and the State Historical Society of Iowa.

    The WCGS website (www.warrencountygenes.org) is a good place to start. Other online resources include the USGenWeb site for Warren County (http://iagenweb.org/warren/) and the Warren County Historical Society’s website (http://warrencountyhistory.org/).
