The Jacksonville Area Genealogical and Historical Society

The Jacksonville Area Genealogical and Historical Society
was organized in 1972 and incorporated in 1976 as a non-profit organization to collect data of a genealogical and historical nature.  Most of our records cover Morgan County, Illinois and other nearby counties within a fifty mile radius such as Cass, Scott, Sangamon, Menard, Macoupin, Greene, Adams, Brown, Schuyler and Pike.  We also have some miscellaneous material on states, mainly Virginia and Kentucky.

Membership is open to any person, regardless of race, national origin, sex, age, or religion who subscribes to the purposes of the Society and pays annual dues. Our society has members nationwide and from a few foreign countries. Society members receive a Quarterly Publication featuring Genealogical and Historical Data from the area, often materials discovered, transcribed and published for the first time. Surnames are listed in the Quarterlies, and queries are accepted.

Yearly dues. January 1--December 31 time period covered in the 4 issues you receive yearly-- March, June, September, December--are $20.00.
