society is a non-profit organization and a tax-exempt
organization under 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue
Code . (A receipt will be given you upon request). We
are an all volunteer Genealogical and Historical
Society located and specializing in Morgan Co.,
Illinois family records. Our society library is
located at 416 South Main Street, Jacksonville,
Unlike public libraries, genealogical and historical
societies are not tax funded. Membership dues are kept
minimal, therefore our society needs your donations to
help pay space rent, telephone, upkeep of computers,
copiers, and scanners, other office supplies and
incidentials. We do have a fund toward the day when we
might have our own building.. Most of our monthly
meeting speakers have donated their services. The
society has no employees--but we do have volunteers
who devote many hours to fulfilling the needs of our
society as they arise. To find out the names of some
of these hard working volunteers click here.
materials contained on these pages are furnished for the free use of individuals
engaged in researching their personal genealogy.
