United States Wisconsin Wisconsin Societies
Genealogical, historical, lineage, veteran, and ethnic societies often collect, transcribe, and publish information that can be helpful to genealogists. Lineage societies, such as the DAR, Colonial Dames, and the Sons of the American Revolution, require members to prove they are descended from people such as colonists or soldiers. National lineage societies such as the DAR are described in United States Societies.
Genealogical and historical societies can provide historical information about families in the area or ancestors of society members.
Genealogical and historical societies occasionally publish transcriptions of original records. Most publish quarterly periodicals, a few of which are listed in Periodicals. Use the Periodical Source Index (PERSI) to find periodicals and articles for Wisconsin localities. State genealogical and historical societies may have records and services to help you with your research. Many counties also have local historical and genealogical societies.
For a list of helpful books with addresses of county genealogical and historical societies in Wisconsin, see Wisconsin Archives and Libraries and ' United States Archives and Libraries and United States Societies.
