I have a picture of the Still, Hunt, Robings family reunion taken about 1910. These families settled in Macoupin County Illinois in the cities of Roodhouse, Whitehall, Brighton. I'm trying to identify the individuals in the picture.....any leads would be most welcomed.

I am trying to learn more about a relative who was admitted to Jacksonville State Hospital (a sanatorium in Illinois.) It appears that he was admitted there in 1912, and then there is no more documentation about his existence after that point. I've been trying to do some digging but it appears the records for the hospital are permanently closed under a state confidentiality act. There may have also been a fire at this facility. Does anyone know any workarounds or creative ideas so I can learn more?

I'm looking for a genealogist with 'feet on the ground' in Grundy County Illinois. Need some one to visit an orphanage and to review some newspapers (1938-1945ish) from Coal City and Morris.

thanks,

I am attempting to locate any information on my great grandfather George Newton Phipps who was born in Illinois on March 27, 1888. His WWI draft card stated he was born in MCLain Ill. USA. I do not believe there is any such place. I thought maybe it was McLean County but I had no success in a County birth record search. He had an older sister Mary S. Phipps. I have no information on his parents at all. If anyone could advise the best resource to search online I would greatly appreciate it. I am already a member of ancestry.com but have had no success with their search tools. Any constructive advice is appreciated.

I'm trying to identify the parents and birth place of my third great-grandmother, Emily Davis.  According to census she was born in Illinois. She is buried in the Elizabeth, Illinois, City Cemetery.  Gravestone gives date of death as 7 Feb 1874 at age 42 yrs, 3? months, 22 days.  She married 12 Apr 1849 Reuben Wolfgang Newkirk in Lafayette, Wisconsin.  I haven't been able to find any record of her birth, so any help would be appreciated.

I am looking for any Information on John & Arena Irene Biggs. They are my 3rd Great Grandparents. I have found Arena's side but I can't find any outside of an 1880 Census on John Biggs. I have been searching for months to no avail. Anyone who has any information would be greatly appreciated.

Hi! I am searching for a Marriage record for Marie (Mary) Knezek and Theodor Kraichely (maybe Krajchel). The Cape Girardeau obituary notes they were married in East St. Louis. I believe this would have happened between Oct 21, 1904 and Sept 17, 1905. Theodore was born in Bohemia or Hungary April 12th, 1882 and Marie was born in Bohemia or Prague Dec 22, 1884. Any help is appreciated or links of databases/research points.
