Historic books and documents are available for reading in the library maintained in the office of the museum. The museum also maintains a list of burial records for most cemeteries in Lake County, and a series of old government books useful for research which were split between the museum and the Calumet Regional Archives at Indiana University Northwest. You can find a listing of these books through the Northwest Indiana Genealogical Society website at http://www.nwigs.org/governmentBooks.php .
