The Clayton County Genealogical Society purchased Bud and Myra Voss’ real estate building located at 119 N. Main Street in Elkader on Tuesday, April 28.

The late Oakland and Irene Becker of Guttenberg, former Genealogical Society members, bequeathed estate money to a trust, for the purpose of finding a suitable location for the Society’s genealogy records. Oakland died in 1998 and Irene in 2012. As per the Beckers' wishes, the records will now be preserved and made available to the general public at this permanent location. The office will be open on a part-time basis after renovations inside the building are completed.
