Genealogy Research at DeWitt Library

Family Tree and Books

Welcome to our guide of genealogical resources. 

Before you begin exploring these resources, please read the following notes about genealogical research:

  • Resources at DeWitt are mostly for people who resided in Sioux County and the vicinity.
  • Most resources concentrate on people with Dutch ethnic roots. 
  • Name spellings can vary from resource to resource, so be sure to look at alternative spellings.
  • Be sure to notice each source's dates of coverage.  For example, a relative arriving in the United States in the 1920s would not be listed in a 19th century US census count.
