Dalby Database History


      Some people may think they have a crazy hobby, but one that has made them many new friends. John suffered a heart attack in 1981. Was unable to return to work. While recovering his cousin called and ask for some family history information. So he got interested in this and joined the Rice County Genealogy Society.

     He started walking cemeteries in 1983 and Jan joined him when she could. They finished Rice County and in doing so, they decided to walked other cemeteries in selected counties in southern Minnesota.

     This lead to indexing history books, plats, and newspaper articles. Recording church records, marriages, birth, Civil War veterans and city directories of Rice County.

     We acknowledge and thank the Minnesota Genealogical Society for the data they have allowed us to use.

     New data is entered and updated daily.
