Kathie: I am a researcher for many families on my family tree. The bulk of the ancestors I am researching come from the Blue Island, Illinois area.

Do you have any specific sources for the different parts of Illinois or are you going to limit your participation to the very difficult task of checking the message board?

I welcome this new site. Perhaps it will open many doors to information that my fellow researchers are seeking.

Cheers, Bev Greener

Surnames: GILLE
I have been researching my GILLE ancestors in Quincy, Adams CO, Illinois. I have not been able to find much information on my direct line. It starts with John Christopher GILLE who arrived to this country in 1847.

I have noticed that there are still some GILLE's living there. I was wondering if they might be related to my ancestors.

Does anyone have any information on the GILLE family in Quincy?

Thank you so much!
