We are proud to be a part of the USGenWeb project, which is an effort to organize genealogical materials on the Internet. Our goal is to provide a web site specializing in genealogy in Minnesota with an emphasis on the county level. Our project's success is only possible through the support of volunteers.

Another reason is a family lived on the edge of Otter Tail County and were closer to a larger town in the next county, and went there to register a vital event. Otter Tail County is bordered by the following eight (8) counties:
