Genealogy

The Coffeyville Public Library is proud to house the genealogical materials for the Montgomery County Genealogical Society.  The Library has an extensive collection of genealogical and historical materials of Coffeyville and the surrounding areas of Montgomery County.

 

 

In May of 2012 we added a new ST View Scan Microform reader. You can now email your article to yourself, copy it to a jump drive or make a print copy. With the new digital reader you can enlarge or reduce an image. You can adjust the brightness, contrast and sharpness of the article.

You can also access Kansas Genealogical infomation online at the Kansas State Historical Society.

The 1940 Census is also available online at 1940 Census.
