**The spreadsheets contain a large amount of information and may take several minutes to display. This data was obtained from cemetery & family records, a walk-through, tombstone photos, obituaries and biographical sources. The accuracy of the data varies and may include errors. If you have additions or corrections, please contact us. If you can not find a desired obituary in the ALHN database to verify the entry, you may wish to order a micro-film of a Clark County newspaper from the time frame you are researching. The available newspapers can be requested from the Wisconsin State Historical through your local library. Vital records may be obtained from the register deeds office. Please consider submitting any newly acquired items to the ALHN Records Board. If you have a bit of extra time, why not type a few unrelated items as a random act of kindness to future researchers?
