The Stoughton Historical Society is not a genealogical repository and does not specialize in family history research. As a small volunteer-powered organization we do not have the staff to respond to genealogy inquiries at this time.
However, the Society is fortunate to be located within 20 miles of one of the top genealogical libraries in the country; the Wisconsin Historical Society library in Madison, WI. If you are researching Stoughton roots, this is an excellent place to start.
