About Us


We are a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization powered by volunteers who offer their knowledge, resources, and time. If you are curious about your heritage or want to preserve the history you've already uncovered, we can help! We hold collections at the Holly History and Genealogy Center primarily related to Waupaca Area families, and you can browse our catalog here.

We also provide talks and programs about genealogy research techniques, resources, and preservation. These programs are free and open to the public, and are held after our monthly membership meetings unless otherwise specified.

We meet at 9:00 AM Central Time on the second Saturday of each month, virtually or at the Historic Holly History and Genealogy Center located at 321 S. Main Street, Waupaca, WI 54981. The public is always welcome; though if you wish to participate via Zoom and are not a member, please contact us ahead of time. The building itself has a fascinating history, and we are so fortunate to occupy it alongside the Waupaca Area Historical Society.
