The Iron County Museum and the Iron County Genealogical Society enjoy a special relationship. The archives in the Research Center at the Museum contain thousands of obituaries, family and individual biographies, oral histories, census records. Copies of The Iron County Reporter going back to 1927, the Crystal Falls newspaper, The Diamond Drill, on microfilm, donated yearbooks from local high schools, as well as genealogy books and displays by Wayne Ohlsson, Dave DeRoche, and Louella Williams are also available. A number of books written by local authors such as Frames for the Future, More Than Just a Farmer, From Pine to Popple, and many others, contain a history of the area and are available to be purchased.
Dale Safford, our “Cemetery Lady”, has conducted tours of the Iron River Cemetery, the Bates Cemetery, and the Stambaugh Cemetery where she highlights early settlers and provides anecdotes about them. Her next tour will be offered in the spring at Resthaven Cemetery. Dale has researched and documented burials in the local cemeteries and that infor-mation can be found on line at “find a grave.com” as well as in our museum archives.
So, you see, the Museum and the Genealogical have a symbiotic relationship. We invite you to use all the Museum’s resources when researching your family’s history.
