SJCPL protects our local heritage so that information and knowledge important to our community can be preserved and shared with all its members. We are and will continue to be your connection to the past, present, and future. We'll search for you! We are happy to help long-distance or homebound patrons with look-ups for St. Joseph County history facts or newspaper articles. For more information, please download the Obituary and Local History Search form or contact us at 574-282-4621 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are happy to accept donations of your printed family history (with a local connection). We cannot accept research notes or notebooks and most computer files. We covet donations of local high school yearbooks, city directories, books by local authors, histories of local organizations or churches, and other like items.
Donations to support our Local & Family History department are welcomed and appreciated. To make a gift please visit our donation page.
