WELCOME TO THE HISTORICAL PLACE & NAME INDEX!
The Manitowoc County Historical Place & Name Index contains tens of thousands of names. Most of the names are those of individuals, but there are also businesses, places, and events.
This index is a work in progress. Information from a variety of sources dating back to the early 1800’s is being added regularly. We are also adding birth, death, marriage, and other information from current newspapers.
