My name is Wini Caudell and I am your host for Stephenson County
here at Illinois Ancestors...your path into the past!
At Illinois Ancestors we like to use a unique blend of genealogy and history. So not only do you find your ancestors but you will also
learn about the area in which they lived and worked.
We're a volunteer organization whose mission is to provide free genealogical data for all researchers.
If you have data that you'd like to share with researchers, I would love to put it online for everyone's benefit.
All contributors will be given credit and retain ownership
of the data they submit. Your information will never be used for profit in any way.
Being a completely independent site, we promise that your data will always remain
free for researchers to use for many years to come!
I'll add new data on a regular basis, so please come back often.
If you would like to contribute data, please email me anytime!
If you'd like to join my mailing list, just email me and I'll sign you up.
