Courthouse Planning - Part 6

The historical society is another possible repository of county records. A quick check of the website for the Macon County Historical Society shows there is a library which requires an appointment. There is no indication it is a repository. So I'll disregard it.

Having located all the repositories, it's now time to pull together the planning document.

For each repository, put the address, phone number and hours into the planning document. Note copy prices if available and note restrictions on public records versus closed records. Since the documents I am searching are prior to 1900, I expect all records to be public.

The University of Illinois at Springfield is not on the agenda for this trip, but it's in the planning document for future reference.

Here's the completed form. The hours will need to be verified again, right before the trip.
