Happy Holidays Everyone,

It's Christmas time once again and I want to wish one and all the best for the upcoming holidays.

I'd like to take a moment to say, it's been a pleasure working for all of you. I have genuinely enjoyed the opportunity of serving as the Hancock County ILGenWeb County Coordinator.
Your generosity and kindness will always be remembered and hold a special spot deep in my heart.
I feel you all are part of my extended family - from the volunteers with their nimble fingers graciously translating documents - to those who donated their time and energy to collect genealogical items to be placed on the website - to those of you who submitted your wonderful contributions - to the huge number of visitors browsing the website.
It is obvious and gratifying to see your valuable support.

Here is what's new at Hancock County ILGenWeb in the last few months:
