Polk County, MN~ Genealogy 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.

Polk County

Cemeteries-- not sure how the listings here might differ from other sites, like Findagrave, but it's worth a look

Obituaries- a few, limited obits from the 1910s-1920.

Bicentennial History of Polk County, Minnesota Pioneers of the Valley -- appears to be part of  digital project by the UofM

Polk County Historical Society-- not a lot of online resources here, but there is some contact info, etc.  Not sure just what type of genealogy resources they may have in their collection
