Menard County Birth Records
November 1878 - December 1887

These records were transcribed from microfilmed copies of the original county records. You will need to scroll right to read all of the information for each record. As with all records, both original and transcribed, there may be errors, when looking for your ancestor names be sure to check all spelling variations. I've spelled the entries as they were on the register, even when I felt sure the spelling was not correct.

I will add additional birth records (at least through the early 1900s) as time permits.
