The Museum is always interested in acquiring more genealogies.  If you have an extra one to donate (one we don't have) give us a call or stop by during Museum hours.

Need help finding your Low-German Mennonite Ancestors ?


Do you have ancestors who were Low-German Mennonites from Russia?  The Museum has the GRANDMA database which includes the names of more than a million individuals. (Bring your ancestor's name, birth or death date, and we will see if it is in the database) 



We have many family genealogies from our area and you might find just the information that you were needing. The Museum has an area where you can sit and study this information undisturbed.  


Goessel also has a Second Monday Family  History and Genealogy Group that meets at the Museum the second Monday of the month.  If you give us your email, the museum can let you know the topic for that month and if the location of the meeting has changed. Those who attend Second Monday 

meet because they have a common interest in history and genealogy.  To find out what the group has done, click.
