Resources

OUR RESOURCES ARE AT YOUR SERVICE

We are privileged to have in our Genealogy Room many resources available for public use. There is a microfilm/fiche reader which also prints copies, two computers with high-speed internet access (hooked up to their own printer), and access to a photocopier in the library.

Our Record Collection continues to grow. We have begun, and are always adding to:

        *an extensive Obituary File

*an index of births, deaths and marriages

*a collection of old Walnut phonebooks

*plat maps of Layton Township and the surrounding townships

*a collection of census records for Iowa and Western Iowa on microfilm from 1847—1920

*church histories and directories from churches in Walnut, Avoca and Atlantic

*updated cemetery indexes for Layton, Lincoln and Monroe townships

We hope to have some of these resources available from this website. Check back with us.
