Addresses for St. Clair County, Illinois Research
The Circuit Clerk has probate records (from 1772). With permission from the Circuit Clerk, C. Barney Metz, the St. Clair County Genealogical Society (SCCGS) is currently (7/2007) procuring duplicate microfilm rolls for deposit in the Belleville Public Library for use by the general public. The indexes are already at the BPL. To contribute to purchase of over 900 microfilm rolls ($20.00 each) for this ongoing project, send contributions in any amount to the SCCGS (address below).
The Recorder of Deeds has the grantor-grantee index beginning 1986 online. There are no plans to put earlier indexes online since these are available for the earliest years through c1905 at the Belleville Public Library, and through IRAD.
