From what I can determine, marriage records are available to 1900 and
births 1877-1886. I don't find later records either.

Does this help ??
Look closely, there are quite a few "sub"-categories there.
I've ordered several things from them and even got a hand-written
letter from their ceo/president/admin' guy that runs it.
The cost of ordering things is quite low.
Some of the records from PRE-1905 is still a work in progress
and not complete.

I need to know if there is any way to get birth, marriage and death information for Lawrence Co., Illinois from about 1905 to 1915.
I don't seem to find any way to find that kind of information even if I call directly to numbers in Lawrence county.
Any help that any one can give will be great.

I am searching for James RICHARDSON's first wife. He is listed in the
1900 Denison Twp., Lawrence Co., IL census with a second wife (May)
along with children:
Clyde, age 12. born in Indiana
James L., age 10, born in Indiana (my line)
George, age 9, born in Indiana
Glen, age 1, born in Indiana.
Kinnert, Fred, age 6, born in Indiana and evidently the child of May.
In this census James is listed as being 49, but also listed is his birth
year as July 1856 so he is either 49 or 44 by my calculation of birth
His age at first marriage was 20. He and May (age 28) had been married
"O" years, which I take to mean they had not completed one year of marriage.
We know that James died, probably before 1910, and the boys were 'farmed
out'. I have found Glen living with sister Emma VANDERMARK in the 1910
census in St. Francisville, Lawrence Co., Illinois.
Does anyone have an idea where I might find the name of his first wife?
I've searched the Indiana marriage records as well as the Illinois ones,
but have not come up with anyone that appears to be this James.
I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.

ISO descendants of:
John Anderson who married Cynthia Elizabeth Roberts in Lawrence County, IL on

I am trying to locate information on my cousin. Her name is Mrs. Sharon (Biggs) Scott and she was living in Sumner, IL, at the time of her father's (Norman Biggs) death in 1976. Any help would be appreciated.
