Welcome to the Schuyler County ILGenWeb Project website, my name is Dennis Partridge and presently I am the county coordinator for Schuyler County, Illinois. The USGenWeb project is seeking new volunteers to assist it in developing state, county, and town project sites. If you have some spare time and are interested in history and genealogy and like helping others find their ancestors, please let them know. See here for more information!

A County website such as this is made up of many different volunteers who have provided genealogy data, sometime countywide, but most of the time specific to their family research within Randolph county. It is these contributions that have made this county website what it is today. Do you have anything you can contribute? If so please let me know using the contact me at the top right of every page and I’ll help get you started on the process.

 

If you see broken links or other problems please let ILGenWeb SC know.
