We are in the process of changing Illinois Ancestor web site cemetery pages, to the Illinois Ancestor Tombstone Project.  This project is an interactive project, which means simply that you can upload tombstone pictures yourself.   (To sneak a peek, click here.)

Woodford County will maintain this index of Woodford cemeteries.  However if the cemetery you click on has been converted, a new window will open for the Tombstone project for that cemeteryWhen you want to return here, simply close the new window.
