History and Genealogy

Finding Ancestors ....
wherever their trails led

 

Hi, my name is Nancy Piper and I am the host for Putnam, Bureau, LaSalle and Marshall Counties. My ancestors came to Illinois over 150 years ago and settled in the tiny village of Florid, which is no longer even a name on a map.  I've always been a "history buff" and these pages let me help share the world my "findings".  On these pages you will find the information pertaining to the history of  Bureau County.  Our goal is to have available free of charge as much information as possible and will be adding continuously to these pages, so check back often.  If you have any information to add for Bureau County, please E-mail me.
