  Faribault County needs volunteers to help look up genealogical information. If you have any reference material on Faribault County - public records, items from your own family files, or materials published before 1921 (copyrights expired) - and are willing to do limited lookups for others, please email me (Kathy Hines) so I can list your name and your reference material on this page.

When requesting a lookup of a Faribault County volunteer, please follow these guidelines:

  1. Put "Faribault Co. Lookup" in the subject line of your message.
  2. Put the name of the reference you are requesting in your message as the volunteer may have several references available.
  3. Limit your request to 1 or 2 specific names with approximate dates.
  4. Don't forget to thank your volunteer for time and effort!
