Minnesota Reflections



Our Genealogy collection includes materials on Redwood and Renville Counties, the city of Redwood Falls and other communities within Redwood County, as well as local resources for Native American Genealogy. Our microfilm collection includes all available films for newspapers published in Redwood Falls. We also have several rolls of local census reports for both Redwood and Renville counties.

We encourage you to stop by the Redwood Falls Public Library to do research. Both microfilm copies and photocopies are 20 per page. If you are unable to visit the Library to do your own research, Staff can search for a specific event with a specific date for a fee. Our newspaper collection is not indexed and we do not have the resources to search through a broad range of dates.

$5.00 for one request
$10.00 for a half hour of research
$20.00 for one hour of research (with a limit of one hour maximum research)

Requests can be accepted via postal mail or email.
Mailing address: 509 South Lincoln Street, Redwood Falls MN 56283

Please include a self-addressed stamped envelope when possible and mark your correspondence with “Genealogy and Local History”. You may wish to use our Genealogy and Local History Request Form with your submission.
