Another good site to look at for this area is the followinghttp://www.monroecountyhistory.org/
You put a surname in the upper right hand corner and it will give you information from where to find newspaper articles, when people were born, marriages in Monroe County, census listings, cemetery listings. This information is added to from time to time as they get more data entered into their data base.
Another site I like to use ishttp://www.lacrosselibrary.org/genealogy/historicevents.asp
it can help with obituaries for the La Crosse, Monroe, Jackson counties of WI.
