Questions we answer

Though unable to provide in-depth research, our volunteers may be able to suggest resources for you to explore. Email your question.

Examples of good questions which tell us some records you have already searched are:

  • “Where can I get a marriage about 1870 for John Anyname to Mary, born [maiden name]?” Their first child, Einstein, was baptized in St. Clair at what is now St. Paul United Church of Christ, Belleville, per my copy of this book.
  • “Where else can I search for a death circa 1890 for Perry Johnson.” There is no death certificate at the courthouse and he is not in the society’s cemetery indexes online and not in Find A Grave. His last residence was Cahokia in 1880.



Researchers – beginners to experienced – need help as new documents are discovered and ancestors disappear.
