Hi. I am the CC for the Lawrence county IlGenWeb site and I just want to
say thanks to all of you who have sent kind notes of welcome, help,
advice and data this past week.
A few changes on the site: I have added a link (on the main page) to
the USGenWeb Family Group Sheet Project. I just learned about this a
few days ago. It looks very interesting. You can input your family data
into an online form. If you would rather export files from your Ged's
then you will have to use Legacy software. Details here:
I am trying out a FreeFind search engine for the site, also on the main
page. I have started a new section for transcribed wills and probate
records. You can find the link to it on the Online Records page. So, if
you have any wills or probate records of family members from Lawrence
county, and you wish to transcribe them, please send them to me.
laurel(a)laureltreat.com I am going to link to these in plain text
format, so don't worry about formatting or anything. Please include
your name on the doc, and your email address. Also, if you would like,
maybe a little note about the original document. Please only send
material from before 1915.
I have decided to change Pioneer Brevities to Pioneer Bios. So if you
wish to write up a longer document on your ancestor, that is fine. But
if you prefer to make it a short one, that is great too. I will
probably split that page up into 2 parts soon. I also received an idea
from a researcher on these bios, if you have a picture of someone in
your write-up and want to send it along, we can link them up.
Several other parts of the site have been updated with newer info or
recent contributions. Check out the Resources page for changes there.

I'd be grateful for the precise death dates of Harry O. Glover and Byron
Glover, who lived in Lawrence County and apparently died there 1950-1972.
Many thanks for your help, and best wishes to you.

Hi. My name is Laurel Treat. I am the new coordinator for the Lawrence
county ILGenWeb site. I have just finished doing some updates and
"cleanup". So, if by chance, any of you have been waiting to contribute
information on your Lawrence county research to the site, you can send
it to me now.
I have re-instated the Surnames being researched page, please stop by to
add or update yours! I would like to add a Lawrence county wills section
to the site. Also, I am looking for a couple of old photos of public
buildings or areas in Lawrence county, or newer pictures of old
buildings, etc. So if you have any photos that you can send, if they
are in .jpg format just email them to me. If you need my mailing
address, contact me and I will email it to you.

Can any of you kind people out there do a lookup for me on my KOHLHORST
family who lived in Bridgeport sometime around 1900 to 1925? My great grandparents
were Henry William Lafin(Lafe) Kohlhorst and Alice Caroline DICKE KOHLHORST.
My grandfather may have been born there..he was Walter Henry KOHLHORST b. Sept
1 1900, married to Muriel Leona Sullivan. I do know for certain that my
father was born there. Walter Eugene KOHLHORST b. May 15 1921. I have many
pictures of what look to be oil wells/oil fields and a trains by what look like oil
tanks. Im trying to determine when my family may have settled there, did they
work at these oil fields and where specifically they lived. Also..any of you
historians..if you could tell me the history of these oil fields and the
trains. I have alot of pictures of Walter and Muriel KOHLHORST when they were
dating playing and posing with their many friend on these trains and oil tanks.
Thanks so much for your help. Janine
Hello, Lawrence County researchers.
As many of you know, the Lawrence County ILGenWeb page at
http://www.rootsweb.com/~illawren/ has been up for adoption for a while.
If you or anyone you know has some research interest in Lawrence County and
even a modest amount of knowledge in maintaining web page, we'd love to hear
from you. This is a volunteer opportunity that can be fun, and it really
puts the coordinator in touch with the county and the other researchers.
Quoting from the ILGenWeb help pages, "The ILGenWeb Project is a member of
the non-profit, volunteer genealogical organization called The USGenWeb
Project." You can read more about how the Project works and what volunteers
do by visiting the page http://www.rootsweb.com/~ilrreg/procedures.htm.
I look forwarding to answering any questions!
