Historical Society Library houses microfilms of vital records prior to Oct 1907 that have been microfilmed. An extensive collection of microfilmed newspapers are also available. Sanborn Fire Insurance maps are available in the Library. The Library also contains published family histories and genealogies.
The Archives has assorted atlases and plat maps and extensive military records from the Civil War, Spanish American War, World War I, and a small amount of World War II material. These records document soldiers associated with Wisconsin military units, but do not document every Wisconsinite who served. With the exception of a card file listing those who served from Wisconsin National Guard units, the Archives has few records for World War II, Korea or Vietnam. The Archives also holds unpublished genealogy files.
