McLeod County, MN Research Resources

As a genealogist from Minnesota, I take great pride in the many resources our state has in place to aide researchers! Many, like the death index, are very well known, but many many others are not.

So I've decided to spotlight a few of the lesser known greats here, in hopes that I can connect someone with a tool they can use! Since Saturdays are good days to do genealogy (at least for us working folks), I decided to post these links then.

McLeod County, Minnesota

There aren't as many online resources for McLeod County, as I'd hoped there might be....
It does appear that the Historical Society has a large archive that is open to the public...
Check out their website--
McLeod County Historical Society
Information on their holdings & research can be found here

And there are a few archived records here at the old UsGenWeb page, that I'm sure hasn't been updated in some time... but there are a few obits and other records here, worth a quick looksee if you have a connection

Unfortunately, McLeod County doesn't have as many online resources as other counties do... but these two sites might offer something... And if you know of any other helpful resource for this area, please post it below!

  1. There is a group page on Facebook for the Bohemian National Cemetery located in Silver Lake, McLeod County, Minnesota. Some of the cemetery records have been scanned and uploaded to the page.
