Manitowoc County Resources



MANITOWOC COUNTY GENEALOGY- One of the most valuable starting places for Manitowoc County Genealogy research is a site maintained by my friend Shari. The site contains over 1500 pages of genealogy data. I tease her that if it isn't on her site, chances are it may not exist. It contains birth and death indexes, marriage indexes, censuses and other valuable genealogy data.
