Illinois Harvest -- again with the digitized local histories, post 4

Bluffs Yesterday and Today 1871-1971 (Bluffs: Jones Publishing Co., [1971]). Am I just prejudiced against the more recent local histories? Do they provide as much genealogical "meat" as the older ones? Bluffs is on the Illinois River in Scott County.

Cisco, Illinois, 1874-1974, by Cisco Centennial History Committee. I hope this one is good; it's about the Piatt County hamlet where my mom's only sister was born.

Stories of a Prairie Town: History of Rankin, Illinois - Vermilion Co., Rts. 9 & 49 (Rankin: Rankin Central Historical Committee, 1972)

Scrap Book: Amos Williams & Early Danville, Illinois, by "his Woodbury grandchildren" (Danville: Press of Recording & Statistical Corp., [1935?]). Typescript.

Chenoa Community Centennial: A Century of Co-operation, 1854-1954, by Chenoa Centennial Committee
