Winter 2009 Illinois State Quarterly

Three feature articles stand out in the current issue of the Illinois State Genealogical Society Quarterly:

* Sheryl Trudgian Jones tells the story behind the story of the Lillian Trudgian diaries of Galena, Illinois, now playing on her blog, "Leaves on the Trudgian Tree."

* Eric Willey enumerates the sources for Illinois divorce records from 1809 to 1961. Believe it or not, there are some statewide indexes!

* David C. Bailey, Sr., gives the first part of Union Civil War burials in Scott County.

Thanks for mentioning my artcle in ISGS's Winter Quarterly. I was honored to be asked to write the article and thrilled with the book review of "Lillian's Diaries: Whispers of Galena's Past" It was kind of you to mention the article in your blog.
