September ECGS meeting

Edgar County Genealogical Society usually meets on the first Monday for its quarterly meetings. Due to the Labor Day holiday and to avoid conflicting with the Historical Society, ECGS will meet on Monday, September 19, at 7pm.

A brief ECGL Board meeting will take place before the society meeting at 6:30pm on the 19th.

Finding family histories

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.

Look what’s been added!

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.
