Meet Our Researchers

Sherry and Jane are long time volunteers to our library. They provide research services to researchers who do not have access to the Riley County Genealogical Library. You may submit research questions and they will make every effort to reply to each message. However, responses are on a first come, first served basis. Our library has an extensive collection of materials, with particular emphasis on Riley and it's surrounding counties in Kansas.

Some of the records we can search are:
