The Family Files at The Weyerhaeuser Museum are the core of our genealogical resources. The Family Files were started with a collection of W.P.A. Biographies taken from area families in the 1930s. Since that time, the Family Files have grown to include family sheets, obituaries, newspaper articles, pedigree charts, census records and other documents. As museum staff or researchers find information, they may add it to the files. Some files have very little information; some have a lot. New files are created as new family names are uncovered.
Documents within the Family Files are arranged alphabetically by last name. Everyone with a particular last name, related or not, is filed alphabetically by first name within the same surname file.
Links to the index of family names on file at the Morrison County Historical Society are below.
Note: The index does NOT include all of the families in the county.
If you can’t find a family name listed, but have evidence that the family was in Morrison County at any time, please contact us to see if we have the information you need. We are happy to start new Family Files for unlisted names and will accept copies of family information for our files.
See our Research page for information on conducting research at the museum.
