The Humboldt County Genealogical Society was formed January 7, 1987 in Humboldt, Iowa. The Society maintains an extensive collection of local histories, cemetery records, family histories, and obituaries in the Humboldt Public Library. The Society purchases a microreader/printer for viewing microfilm records of the Humboldt Independent and Humboldt Republican newspapers, which are on file at the library.
Additional resources can also be found at the Humboldt County Historical Museum, which is located in Dakota City, Iowa. Any questions or comments can be directed to Martha Schmidt at email@example.com or (515) 604-4963.
