My name is Joe Markovich. I am the coordinator for the ILGenWeb Rock Island County Illinois web site. To volunteer to host an Illinois county contact the state coordinator Cheryl Rothwell. I am also the coordinator for the ILGenWeb counties of Boone, Lee, McHenry, Mercer, Tazewell, Vermilion, Lake, Whiteside, Stephenson, Winnebago, Henry, and Henderson.
How the ILGenWeb Started
In June, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Indiana Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more that one county, they could be located in the index. At the same time, some volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page. Eventually, this was expanded to all states and all counties across the US.
Site navigation is through the tree on the left hand of the screen. The tree is arranged by topics and sub-topics, as in an outline. Sub-topics are accessible by clicking on any topic that has a "+" sign next to it. The (inactive) graphic below shows the Biographies data topic in this website expanded by clicking on the "+" sign next to the Biographies data topic.
There also is a Navigation Panel located in the center at the bottom of each page. The Navigation Panel enables the viewing of the first or last page of the Rock Island site or to step thru the site one page at a time. The Navigation Panel (inactive) graphic is shown below.
Look Up and Research Request
I am unable to do your personal research. I do not live in Rock Island county or in Illinois and I do not have access to additional records. If you do not see the information you are seeking in this site, I do not have it as everything I have is posted in this site.
