Thanks so much for the shout out! I know I need another blog like a hole in the head but I feel that Illinois genealogy resources are so important to folks - many of those who settled out West went through the Prairie State and have ancestors located there.

I remember seeing this list somewhere recently, but I didn't thank anybody, so now I'm thanking you. Can't wait to find something ...maybe.
