Are Needed To Help Pay Expenses
Of Our Society

Our 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, Illinois 62650-2904. 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.
