Welcome To Our Website

The Waupaca Genealogical Society of Waupaca County, Wisconsin is pleased to present our new website. It is meant to be a resource in your search of your ancestors who came from this area. Some ancestors stayed for many years while others became discouraged and moved back east or to other communities to raise their family.

In the coming months, check back often as new content continues to be added.

Holly History and Genealogy Center

Outside the Holly Center

The Holly History and Genealogy Center is now open Wednesday through Friday, 10 am to 2 pm!

The Center is a treasure trove of Waupaca History and Genealogy resources.

On Wednesdays, a Volunteer from the Waupaca Area Genealogical Society is available to help you with your research and answer questions and provide direction to break those brick walls or just to help you get started.
