A valuable new tool for genealogists has just been completed by volunteers and staff at the Madison County Archival Library. It is expected that the new “Guardianship Index” will help genealogists solve roadblocks in their family trees and allow them to learn more about their ancestors.

MCHS has put the index on its website so it can be accessed by anyone, although a visit to the library will be necessary to see the actual file. The index can be found at https://madcohistory.org/archival-library/archival-library-resources/probate-court-files/

It can also be located by going to www.madcohistory.org, and looking at Library Resources on the Archival Library page.

Illinois State Historical Society

Last year the Illinois State Historical Society commissioned a limited special bronze casting of John McClarey’s statuette “The Conversation.” which features seated representations of President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist Frederick Douglass in their first conversation in the White House, which took place on August 10, 1863. A very limited number of signed, numbered statuettes are available to individuals who contribute $2,500 or more to the ISHS's endowment fund. Each statuette comes with a certificate of authenticity and the gratitude of the Society’s Board of Directors.

To order “The Conversation,” call 217-525-2781 today.
