Useful Genealogy Tools: Atlas & Farm Directory searches


Many of my ancestors settled in a small Central Wisconsin area by late 1880s. In those rural areas there are Atlas and Farm Directories for WI Counties, that include Township Plats with information on property owner, married spouse first name, children first name, section number, acres and years lived on location.

I was able to find in Juneau County, my relatives, neighbors and also learn new information that has helped to explain whom my paternal grandmother’s sister married after her first husband died and leaves her with two children and the farm. A neighboring property had a name that correlated with previous information on her second married surname. The man she later married was her neighbor who had a farm next to hers.

Love solving mysteries and gathering Genealogy Proof to support research and previous findings.
