I thought I had a brick wall, SO DO You, you can't find the records at Dodge County because of the fire in 1870 destroyed all records before that time period. LOST FOREVER, which is really bad, WI has a spot called AREA RESEARCH CENTERS, mainly housed in College thru out the state. If you go on the WI Historical site you can do a search and it will tell you where they are. So you will know by city and county which Research Center to go to. Also the WI Historical society may have the records your looking for also, I have obtained some there.
