|While Recorder's Office personnel can assist the public in using the documents on file to conduct
research, time constraints often prevent office personnel from researching telephone and email
requests for genealogy records. Genealogy research requests can be directed to the Fayette
County Historical Society at www.fayettecountyiowa.org/HistoricalCenter.html.
