Two excellent resources for southeastern Idaho research are the Genealogical Library in the David O. McKay Resource Library at Ricks College in Rexford, Idaho; and the Idaho Falls Family History Center in Idaho Falls, Idaho. The latter has all the area mortuary records, cemetery records, and the 'Post Register' obituary index (to 1955).

The Idaho Library Directory is an extensive website to the libraries in the state. This includes current information on public, academic, and private libraries and links to these library websites.
