In addition to finding county government records in county courthouses across the state, the State Historical Society of Iowa has preserved many of these records including birth, marriage and death records, naturalization papers and land deeds on microfilm and are available for viewing at a Research Center.
Census records for federal, state and special censuses are available at the State Historical Research Centers. In addition, census records are available online through a partnership with Family Search and Ancestry.com.
