Rawlins County



Welcome to the genealogy page for Rawlins County, Kansas. My name is Denise Maaske and I am the coordinator for this site. I live in Atwood where my ancestors settled after coming from the Czech Republic, Germany, and Austria Hungary.  My love for genealogy has prompted me to help others with this page. I hope you find some valuable information that will help you on your search. If you would like to contribute to this page, or if you have information that might help others, please let me know.
