Heritage research in Central Illinois

More at
Heritage research in Central Illinois
I specialize in McLean County and the surrounding area and do most research via the computer. However, field trips to nearby libraries, courthouses and cemeteries are available.
Areas of research include marriage and death records, cemetery inscriptions, census records 1790-1930, local history, land records, newspapers, obituaries, pension applications, probate records, and tombstone photography.
Will provide research reports, family group sheets, pedigree charts, ancestral or descendant genealogy reports
