Edgar County Genealogical Society will hold its quarterly meeting at 7pm on Monday, December 4 in the Historical Museum Annex, 408 N. Main. We will continue to discuss possible merger with the Historical Society.
Edgar County Genealogy Library now has an updated burial index for Edgar Cemetery. The update covers 2013-2021.
Edgar County Genealogy Library staff recently compiled an online surname list of the 672 family histories in the library. The A-Z list is now available in a pdf that can be browsed or searched by using Find or Find in page (usually under Edit) in your browser or pdf reader. Check the Vertical File Index to see if we have files for a name you are researching. There may be some typos but the lists will help you discover what family information can be found in the library.
We have a new sign. It’s not easy to tell from Main Street when the library is open. Our hours are posted on the door, but it faces the driveway, not the street.
This sign will help identify the library and show that we are open for walk-in visits. We hope that it will encourage passersby to stop in.
