About Des Moines County Genealogical Society

Our society has been involved in many projects in our 40 plus years.

The Des Moines Co., Iowa, cemetery burial records are currently being updated from earlier records. We purchase numerous books concerning genealogy to be made available for patrons use at the genealogy section at the Burlington, Iowa, library. The library has many visitors from outside of our area to use the material we have donated when they are visiting the library. Most recently we had a gentleman from Portland, Oregon to search for his family members who were early settlers to Des Moines County during the Wisconsin territory.

The Des Moines County Genealogical Society was formed in 1973. We exchange newsletters and quarterlies with several other genealogy groups from around the United States.

We have conducted Research for people across the united states as well as some foreign countries.

Assistance is always appreciated. New members are always welcome. Donations to our society are graciously received.
