Our History Room is a great resource for the genealogist or local history buff!
Obituaries We are very proud of our unique Obituary File, which contains hundreds of local obituaries dating from the mid-1800's to the present. Many of these come from a large collection of scrap books dating from the 1920's through the 1950's (these scrapbooks are also available for your use).
Yearbooks We have most volumes from the White Pigeon High School/ Middle School, beginning with 1953. Now they can also be viewed on our website!
Microfilm We have various White Pigeon news publications on microfilm, dating from the 1830's.
Cemetery Records We have the complete 5-volume set of Cemeteries of St. Joseph County, a great resource for genealogists.

-White Pigeon by Wayne Dury
