Anoka County Death Index
Anoka County History Center has extensive obituary files from 1869 to the present. This is a start to a master index of all the Obituary files. If you would like copies of the obituaries please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or come to the History Center and we will help you to find them.
The obituaries are in 3 different formats depending on the years that they were collected.

Civil War Soldiers Records
The Anoka County Historical Society has information on the Civil War soldiers from Anoka County in their research library along with considerable detail on the "2nd Minnesota Battery." Please contact the Historical Society at the History Center & Library on how to obtain the information.
The Anoka Civil War Soldiers Database is now available on the computers at the Anoka History Center!
This database contains the names of 665 men who lived in Anoka County, Champlin, or Dayton, before or after the Civil War and served at least three months. It will detail the vital information known about the man, including birth, marriage, and death dates, as well as information about his profession, family, and life after the war. The database is a work in progress, but when completed will include links to obituaries, death records, enlistment records, and other primary sources on the men, many of the documents from the collections of the Anoka History Center and the Minnesota Historical Society.
This database was created to honor the men of Anoka County who served the United States through the bloodiest war in American history during the 150th anniversary of the conflict. If you know of any soldiers or sailors missed in the database, or are willing to provide further information on a family member, please contact Kerri Teske at email@example.com.
