I am requesting information and assistance with the discovery of Sedgwick County resources.
Information on the following resources would be greatly welcomed: county records (births, deaths, marriages, wills, deeds, etc), local libraries (history books, genealogical records, etc), local newspapers (back issue files), local mortuaries (funeral records), cemetery locations, and cemetery listings.
In addition, anyone with access to any of these county resources, and who is willing to volunteer to assist with searching these records in response to researcher queries, please contact me. Your assistance would be gratefully welcomed.

The 1900 1910 1920 Census for Sedgwick county is now on line. A great deal of thanks goes to those that volunteer to do this work.
There are other sources for viewing the microfilms containing Federal Census data: the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and the LDS (Mormon) Church Family History Centers (FHC). The Colorado State Historical Society has the films of the State Censuses. In addition, state and local historical or genealogical societies may have some of these films.
NARA regional offices have available the Federal censuses from 1790-1920 (most of 1890 was lost in a fire), as well as many other Federal records. In addition, the NARA regional office in Denver also contains many other Colorado specific records. The address of the NARA offices is:
Family History Centers will contain varying amounts of census microfilm and other records. They should all have (on microfiche or computer) the index of publications available from their main archives in Salt Lake City. Only those FHCs in the larger cities may have extensive permanent files, but all can request (for a small fee) microfilm and microfiche copies for your research. They do not loan books from the archives, but if the books have been filmed, you can request those films. Many local FHCs may also contain donated books and other records of historical or genealogical interest, some will have the Colorado state census records also.
Family History Centers nearest Sedgwick County can be found in Aurora, Boulder, Denver, Fort Collins, Greeley, and Sterling. For addresses, consult telephone books in the appropriate city, or check the COGenWeb Colorado Resources Page.
