Research Library

The Riley County Genealogical Society in Manhattan, Kansas, was established in 1963 to promote fellowship and cooperation among people conducting genealogical research.

The genealogical society welcomes beginners and helps them get started. Experienced researchers will search our records for those not able to visit the library. There is a fee for this service. Researchers with special interests are welcomed, and encouraged to share their knowledge with others. The organization offers classes for small and large groups. Monthly meetings are free and open to the public.
