Shawano County Genealogy

We are a local group of genealogy researchers. We reside here in Shawano County and have put together a local website to better help other researchers. We are working hard to transcribe all the Vital Records we can. We have finished indexing the huge volumes of Obituaries stored here in Shawano, which now has reached over 100,000 names. IF you bookmarked the Obit page prior to Sep 3 you will have to re-bookmark it from one of the new links.

We have finished walking and photographing 136 Cemeteries in Shawano County.  This aided us to add to our first initial posting of Cemeteries, but some stones sadly are no more. This effort was made to give you a visual of your ancestors last resting place. We hope to finish Woodlawn this summer and we plan on adding 5 cemeteries from the Menominee Reservation.
