Genealogy, Kansas Reference and Local History Collections
This area of the Wichita Public Library includes resources in many formats, from books and microfilm to photographs, manuscripts, directories, newspaper clippings, maps, and even ephemeral materials (objects). In this part of Kansas, and in the greater regional surroundings, the Wichita Public Library's collections are the some of the largest of this nature.
On these pages, you will find general information about how to use the collections, as well as specific features of the three material groups. We also include links to external Internet resources in each area.
