The Demmer Library offers a Local History Room that houses a microfilm ScanPro 3000 and a public internet access computer.

The Local History Room has a special collection of items relating to the Three Lakes area and the State of Wisconsin. The microfilm collection includes select editions of Three Lakes newspapers on film as well as select Wisconsin census records.  The Demmer Library is also able to access microfilm through the Wisconsin State Historical Society.  For more information please contact demmer@demmerlibrary.org

The Demmer Library is a FamilySearch Affiliate Library . We are able to access resources of the FamilySearch Center in Salt Lake City, UT.

The Local History room also has a comprehensive collection of books on the techniques of doing genealogy from beginner’s manuals to those aimed at a very specific audience, e.g. Tracing Your Irish Ancestors or Genealogy Online for Dummies.

The Demmer Library gladly accepts donations of local history items for our Local History Room.
