The section is an extension of the Marriage and Family section of the site. It contains biographies and genealogical data about Waukesha County residents. The information has been compiled from a variety of sources such as: County Marriage index, church records, newspaper microfilm, other family researchers, and the "History of Waukesha County" and "Haight's 1907 Waukesha County Memoirs". It is far from a complete listing of early residents of Waukesha County. As I get more information I add it. Hopefully you can find who you are looking for. Use the site search to locate all the pages that contain your surname.
If you have any Waukesha County Marriages/Births/Baptisms/Confirmations that you would like to add to this page - send me an email and I will be glad to put them online. Please "ONLY" send information of deceased persons.
To facilitate your search the surnames have been cross indexed.
Unfortunately many of the articles I obtained did not contain the source information. If I know the source of the information, I have noted it as Source:. If no source is available it may have been from an anonymous donor or a researcher. Click to see some of the sources used for this compilation..
