My name isJanine Crandell and I am your host for this county, rich in
heritage. Many generous researchers
have provided a combination of historical and genealogical data that
will hopefully help you in your research. Claire Crandell
(co-webmaster) and I will add data
regularly, so please visit often.
We would love to hear from you! Only together can we make this website a
great place where we can find out about our ancestors in Peoria
County. If you have data that you would like to contribute, all of our
ancestors would be indebted to you!
IF YOU'D LIKE TO BE INFORMED

Tip: You can use * before or
after a portion of a name
to find other possible spellings.
We're always on
the lookout for old scrapbooks! The kind in
which your relative placed newspaper clippings of wedding
announcements & obituaries. They're an extremely valuable
source of genealogy information. If you find any gathering
dust in your attic and don't know what to do with them,
we'll put them to good use.
In Memory of John Melton
A fine and honorable man...we'll miss you
and your wonderful surprise visits to our home.
