Library Genealogy Assistance
The local history collection at the Northfield Public Library includes books, atlases, plat maps, local high school yearbooks, scrapbooks, newspaper and census microfilm, clippings, family histories, telephone books and more. The Reference staff can look up articles or obituaries in the local newspaper. There is a charge of $5.00 per article for out-of-state residents. We will respond to genealogical requests as time permits. The Reference staff is not able to do in depth genealogical research. Please contact the Northfield Historical Society or the Rice County Historical Society for names of people who do research for a fee.
