Genealogy Database Development

Make your local vital records available for genealogy research through your library's web site! Winnefox can help you move away from trays of index cards and newspaper clipping files -- all you need to do is designate a staff person or volunteer to enter data from your local files, and we'll do the rest! To get started contact Keetra Baker at baker@winnefox.org.

To get an idea of what we can do for your library, take a look at the databases we've developed so far:

This database indexes citations of many of the obituaries, funeral notices, marriages and milestone anniversaries published in the Fond du Lac newspapers.
