DCHS maintains extensive print, microfilm, and online archives. Our databases include more than a half-million church and cemetery records, census information, and more.
Now you can Search the Dakota County Census Records to find your ancestors. The records are sorted by last name, and census records grouped by households with the number of individuals in the household indicated in parentheses. Use the drop down menus above to select the type of record you would like to search. If you have a relative that served during World War I from Dakota County, you can view our World War I Biographies. This is not a complete list. If you have additional research on your relative, please use the email below to submit it and we will work to get them included.
We can help in your ancestral search using obituaries, marriage announcements, Catholic Church records, etc.
We request a donation of $15.00 per half hour to support our research services.
