Resources for Tracing Your Danish Roots

The Genealogy & Education Center is located on Main Street in Elk Horn, Iowa, about one-half mile from the Museum of Danish America grounds. A full-time Librarian Manager and trained volunteers are available to assist with your genealogical needs.

Since the Museum of Danish America's Genealogy & Education Center (formerly known as the Family History & Genealogy Center) opened in 1996, the center has assisted many individuals in finding links to their Danish immigrant past and has located lost relatives for both Danish and American researchers.

A significant collection of family history resources and background materials relating to Danish immigrants, settlements and institutions can be found at the Genealogy & Education Center. Assistance is available for both novice genealogists and experienced family historians who need help with Danish research. 

Translation and research services are offered. The Genealogy & Education Center is a member of the Iowa Library Services Southwest District.
