Butler County Lookup Volunteers


If you own or have access to reference materials of genealogical value to Butler County Iowa family researchers, please consider listing yourself and the resource available to you on this page. As a lookup volunteer, you will be required only to look up limited information on ONE individual (or couple) at a time. Reference material of interest could include family histories, marriage records, death records, cemetery lists, county or town history books, census indexes, etc.


Be sure to limit your request, state it clearly, and thank the volunteer!
