Frequently Asked Questions

Your specialists in genealogy and local history for Minnesota, Wisconsin, North and South Dakota and the surrounding area


  1. Is everything you carry listed in your catalog?
    In a word - NO. In addition to the books listed in our catalog, we also carry general reference works such as The Handy Book for Genealogists, some lineage society references, newly arrived books, one-of-a kind books, and a selection of resources for searching for ancestors in other parts of the world. If you don't see what you want, ask! We may have it already.

  2. How can I order books?
    • On-line catalog/bookbagCatalog
      You can browse by subject and select items as you go. When you're done, your order can be submitted by e-mail and you can print the order confirmation for your records. If you prefer, you can fax or phone payment information.

  • Do you take credit cards?

  • How long does it take to get an order?
    Orders are usually packed for shipment on Mondays, and taken to the Post Office on Tuesdays for shipping. Let us know if your order needs special handling or quicker response.


    We're trying to make other resources available. Besides publishing the Minnesota Genealogical Journal, we take the book store to genealogy events, travel throughout the state to seek out additional resources, work with other authors on future publications, transcribe records for publication (e.g., Calvary Cemetery in St. Paul), and volunteer at the Genealogy Help Desk at the Minnesota Historical Society.

  • Do you have the (enter family name here) genealogy?
    While we carry many Minnesota-related local histories which include biographical information, we do not handle compiled family histories.
