Genealogy Requests

The Indianola Public Library maintains a collection of local history and genealogy materials. This collection is intended to help persons who are interested in conducting genealogy research. Realizing that some are unable to visit the Library in person, the Library has developed a Genealogy Research Policy.

Genealogy requests can be submitted online by clicking HERE.
