Northern Illinois: Cook, Will, DuPage, Kane, Kendall Counties. Perry County, Illinois, Lyons, Co. Kansas and Lancaster Co. Nebraska
I am available to help with any and all genealogy research pertaining to Will, Kane and Kendall Counties in Illinois. I can do some look-ups for vital records, take cemetery photos and visit repositories in Cook and DuPage Counties in Illinois on a limited basis. I have copies of vital records and some cemetery books for Perry County, IL, Lyons County Kansas and Lancaster Co. Nebraska, but will not be able to do on-site research in these places for you.
I do obituary lookups in the Chicago Tribune newspaper (1855-2008). Must know exact date of death. I only charge for reimbursement of my copy and mailing expenses, currently $2 per printed page, plus postage.
