Wills and Probate Sales

A good place to find people who may not have been around at the census count. Some things never change, as people love a sale! Check out who bought what? One of your ancestors might have been there.

MINUTES OF THE MUDDY RIVER BAPTIST ASSOCIATION ILLINOIS 1820 - 1840

We are pleased to post the following record of the Minutes of the Muddy River Baptist Association. Our thanks to Ron & Doris Nelson for permission to use the printed copy for transcription. Its a treasure to come accross records this old that have survived. Its also great to see one's own ancestor involved in the church as a messenger. We hope you enjoy these records of the minutes and hope you find someone you know listed in them. Some of those involved traveled to other churches in southern Illinois to visit & report and keep the churches in the doctrine of the association.

Southern Illinois Poetry

"Southern Illinois Poetry" is dedicated to the past: to the small rural communities with their mud roads, coal oil lights and horse drawn vehicles, and to the small trading posts and town where supplies were brought in by rail. This book is dedicated to the honest, hard working families who built their own homes, church and school; cleared the land, planted gardens and crops, cured their meat, made molasses, threshed grain and made their bread.

Southern Illinois Poetry by John Gwaltney

Southern IL.Photo Exchange

We discovered a new cousin and each of us had family pictures the other didn't have. We both made copies and delighted each other with new photos!

We thought it would be great to list available pictures for anyone desiring to participate.

If you have a scanned picture you would like to send as an attachment I will post it.
