Welcome to Henry County Illinois  
History and Genealogy

Finding Ancestors ....
wherever their trails lead


Our goal is to help you track your ancestors through time by
transcribing genealogical and historical data and placing it
online for the free use of all researchers.

If you have any information to add, please E-mail Nancy Piper (temporary host)

This website is available for adoption!

If you have a love for history, a desire to help others, and basic web-authoring skills, consider joining us!
Get the details on our Volunteer Page.
[A desire to transcribe data and knowledge of how to make a basic webpage is required.]

We regret that we are unable to do personal research for you.
We do our best to present free material that will help you research your family in Illinois and many times, forego our own personal research to do so. We have set up a research help page to answer most of the frequently asked questions about research in Illinois.

Please refer to
THIS PAGE before contacting us for help. Thanks!

Christine will do look-ups in the following book:
