Materials that might be of interest to researchers include:
Please note that ALL research is done by VOLUNTEERS, as our not-for-profit society does not have any paid staff. We do not have set fees for doing research, but we expect a reasonable donation based on the amount of time spent on a request.
One last note-we do not do general genealogical searches that might involve censuses or visiting the county courthouse for vital statistics. For general searches we can recommend the Henry County Genealogical Society and Henry County Courthouse. (See the "Links" page). We limit our efforts to the material that we have in our museum and looking at microfilm of Kewanee newspapers.
Additional information and photographs are available when you visit the Kewanee Historical Museum
As always, if you have old photographs, stories or documents
you wish to share
with the Historical Society we would be greatly appreciated.
