Books and Resources for Kane County Research

Research is a funny hobby. Oftentimes, information is available about your family, but you have no idea where to look. This page is an attempt to identify the various resources, both in print and electronic, that may be useful for your family research. Where books are still avalable for purchase, the seller has been identified. For those out-of-print, try one of the many used book resources or keep an eye on Ebay for it to come up for sale. If you are aware of a helpful resource not listed here, please let me know so that I can add it for the benefit of all. I hope this can serve as a checklist of documents and 'things' to check for finding your roots. Thanks, Marcia -
