Research Your History

Since 1949 the Steele County Historical Society has been collecting documents, photographs and books relating to wide range of local history. Guests are welcome to use our Zamboni Genealogy and Research Room. Access is FREE for SCHS members and $5 for non-members. If you are planning a visit, please consider calling ahead (507-451-1420) and making an appointment so that we may best serve you. Research requests may also be submitted via email by clicking here.  

If you are interested in genealogy and would like tips on researching, SCHS offers a Genealogy Club which meets the first Tuesday of every month, 10:00 AM, at the History Center.  The Club also offers a brown bag lunch series covering a wide range of genealogy research topics.
