Welcome to the Riley County Kansas History and Heritage Project. We are dedicated to presenting free genealogical resources for researching your Riley County roots. This website is a new, but growing, project, and we will add data regularly, so please check back often. This site is part of a larger project, the Kansas History and Heritage Project.
You may use the search engine below to find surnames. Please search for surnames, or unusual given names separately for better results; also you may want to use spelling variations, as some names may have been misspelled in original records.
If you have suggestions, or would like to contribute data or photos to this site, please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I don't live in Kansas, so I cannot do personal research, but contact me anyway if you have questions--perhaps I can point you in the right direction!
You may also want to visit my Clay County website--Clay adjoins Riley on the northwest, while Geary County is south and west of Riley County. For other counties in this project, please visit the County Archives section of the KHHP website.
