Pike County IL


Hello to all the Pike County Researchers

My name is Christine Walters, your County Co-ordinator for Pike County IL. I hope to bring new interest, new direction and new ideas to the website and will be looking forward to all of your ideas and suggestions as well. Lets all follow the trail of our mutual ancestors and get to know this place they all called "home." Many thanks to Mindy Doellman, the previous host of Pike County.

Genealogy Trails is "free" and is dedicated to making available, everything we can find on Pike County. Your contributions, no matter how small, are wanted and needed to make this possible. We need Bios, Obits, News articles, Wills, Births, Cemetery listings, Marriages and everything in between. Anything else you might find hidden away could break down somebody's brick wall. If you have books or CD's you could send me -- I'll do my best to get them transcribed. Your photos are welcome -- school histories are especially important and I could go on and on. Click on any of the categories to the right to begin your search. Look down the page to find more information.
