Illinois Genealogy

Those of you interested in Illinois genealogy will be interested in the website "Illinois Clicks" found at: http://www.illinoisclicks.org/.

About half way down the home page on the left hand side is a hyperlink to "Genealogy and Local History." That will lead you to further clicks covering a variety of topics. Of particular interest is the link to "Illinois Relatives: Online Records." Here you will find cemetery and city directory records among other selections.

The site is nicely arranged and easy to use, but don't expect completeness. Some of the links to certain types of data lead to deadends. That simply means the site is a work in process and more information will be added over time. It is worth checking our, however, because some of the data you find there is fairly unique.
