Our collection contains a large amount of genealogical material from Kansas and other states. It is a great place to start researching your family history! Our collection also holds a wealth of information on Kansas history, from general state information down to information for individual local counties. Come in to discover more about your family and Kansas!

Some of our most used resources are:

  • Computer Software: Family Tree
  • Microfilm collection includes, but is not limited to: Lyon County Newspapers and Marriage Records.
  • Newsletters and material from government bodies around the country and Kansas.
  • Resources on Lyon County history

With assistance from the Loretto A. Langley Charitable Trust and from the Flint Hills Genealogical Society, the Emporia Public Library now has three new pieces of technology to aid in family research. A face-up scanner/copier was purchased along with a microfilm scanner and a computer. The scanner/copier allows large or fragile books to be copied without damaging the spine like a normal face-down copier would. The microfilm reader permits the user to send the selected information to a computer. At this point the user can select just the information that is needed. An added option is that the researcher may print off the information, save it to a disk or e-mail it to themselves as an image file.

Come see the exciting technologies that we have in our Family and Local History Department!
