FIND SANGAMON HISTORY INFORMATION

All inquires about Sangamon County histories are referred to the Sangamon Valley Collection at the City of Springfield's Lincoln Library and/or to Mike Kienzler, editor of the Society's growing on-line and searchable encyclopedia of Sangamon County history,
The Society was instrumental in the creation of the Sangamon Valley Collection at the Library and continues to support its efforts to build a vast collection of material on local history and genealogy. The Sangamon Valley Room, on the Library's third floor, is open to the public. Call ahead for hours. Copies of all Sangamon County Historical Society publications are among its holdings.
