Due to budget cuts, the Fort Dodge Public Library is currently short staffed. As a result, reference staff members have been unable to process requests for genealogical/historical research and information in a timely matter. Reference staff members can only search for an obituary, marriage, birth announcement or other event if a specific date (month and year) is supplied. Please be aware that staff members will research all requests in the order they were received and as time permits. If you do not have a specific date or would like to receive this information more quickly, please contact the appropriate service listed below.The email address is: webcoiagenies@gmail.com.

Search the IaGenWeb Archives. This is a centralized location of files submitted to the USGenWeb Archives Project.
