About Us

During the 1976 Bicentennial celebration, the Buchanan County Historical Society decided to research all the cemeteries in Buchanan County, while the tombstones were still legible. This turned into a lengthy project and the book “Buchanan County, Iowa, Cemeteries, 1980" was published. The Buchanan County Genealogical Society was formed as a branch of the Historical Society. Since that time thousands of obituary/cemetery cards have been filed and are updated weekly. Our library is staffed entirely by volunteers who help researchers when they visit the library.

Research may also be done by mail or over the Internet.
