Staff at the Reference Desk are here to help you find the information you need. They can help you search our many databases, dig into our genealogy and local history collection, or learn to use our collections of digital books, audiobooks, music, movies, and magazines. If you've got a question and don't know who to ask, the Reference Desk is a great place to start.

As Iowa's oldest city, Dubuque has a rich history and a lot to offer area genealogists. We strive to maintain an extensive collection of print and microfilm resources and to track useful pages from across the web.
