Idaho County Genealogy Resource Center

Are you curious as to what is in the blue house? Welcome to the Idaho County Genealogy Resource Center. The question was asked, “Who are you...Where did I come from?” so, in 1975, a group of ladies met and formed a non-denominational organization to search for their ancestors. Little did they realize that in the future years that we would acquire our own resource center.

We had a visitor come in from Alaska, asking for some information on his ancestors. Everyone was surprised when they found that one of the members is related to him. Another member is actually living in his father's house here in Grangeville. The little things that can be found with some research. We welcome everyone to come in and take a look at what we have to offer. Opened Wednesdays through Fridays from 1-4 p.m.

We will be open during Border Days on June 6th, 1-4 p.m.
