This is a genealogy website.

The webmaster of this county is Kim Torp.
I have no genealogical connections in Kane County and all the information I have on Kane is presented here. I am not a native of Kane County and my knowledge of this county is limited to the information you find on these pages. If you have any information you would like to contribute to this website,
email me.

***I regret that I do not have time to conduct personal research for you. I don't have ANY further information than what is already on this website - that includes for your family. When I do come across new data, this is where it will go, so keep checking back here.***

Copies of birth records may be obtained only by that person, a parent or other legal representative. Copies of death records may be obtained by a person having a personal or property right interest in the record or by a duly authorized agent.

By Illinois law, "genealogical records" are defined as:

Many thanks to Mary for reminding us that the IRAD has many records for much less $ than the city offices. The IRAD at NIU services Kane County.
