Family History is a Journey of Discovery…

Get to know your ancestors… We’re here to help!

Since 1965, we have been helping families research, discover and preserve their family histories. We believe that all families have important heritage, stories and memories that should be preserved and passed on to future generations. We also know just how quickly those stories and memories can be lost forever if efforts are not undertaken to preserve them. We’re here to assist you along your journey of Family History discovery, and to help you make sure that your family stories are not lost.

We have extensive knowledge of and ready access to Shawnee County and northeast Kansas source materials, but our services and resources are not limited to Topeka, Shawnee County, or Kansas. We also have access to materials and records from across the U.S. and genealogy research experience that would be applicable to any geographic location. No matter where your family roots lie, we’re here to help!

How We Can Help You:


Family History research is a lifelong learning process. There is always more to learn. We offer a variety of resources to help you find the answers you seek, and programs, classes and Special Interest Groups to help you build your research skills and knowledge. Whether your family roots are in Northeast Kansas or elsewhere, we can help.


Whether you are seeking previously unknown cousins or kindred spirits who share your enthusiasm for family history, joining a local genealogical society is a great place to begin your quest. Make new friends, find encouragement and draw inspiration by sharing your family history challenges and discoveries.

Helping Others

Today’s family historians owe a debt of gratitude to those who have gone before us and created indexes, finding aids and online content to make our research easier. Today, we continue that work with ongoing projects to index, digitize and make records and resources available online. Volunteer to help us in this important work.
