Courthouse Planning - Part 5

One place to look for county records is the local historical or genealogical society. This is where I hit the jackpot for Macon County, Illinois.

The Decatur Genealogical Society & Library has the original probate packets for the county. It is a depository for Macon County. The society also has indexes and abstracts for many county record sets. Family Bibles are also in their collection.

DGS has limited hours. I've sent an email to verify if and when they will be open when I'm in Macon County. Once I hear back, I'll more carefully review their holdings list.
