My name is Wini Caudell and I am your host for JoDaviess County here at Illinois Ancestors...your path into the past!

At Illinois Ancestors we like to use a unique blend of genealogy and history. So not only do you find your ancestors but you will also

learn about the area in which they lived and worked.

We're a volunteer organization whose mission is to provide free genealogical data for all researchers.

If you have data that you'd like to share with researchers, I would love to put it online for everyone's benefit.

All contributors will be given credit and retain ownership of the data they submit. Your information will never be used for

profit in any way.

Being a completely independent site, we promise that your data will always remain free for researchers to use for many years to come!

I'll add new data on a regular basis, so please come back often.

If you would like to contribute data, please email me anytime!



Jo Daviess County is a county located in the northwest corner of Illinois and is bordered by the Mississippi on the west.  Jo Daviess County was formed

in 1827 out of Henry and Putnam Counties. It is named for Maj. Joseph Hamilton Daveiss, United States District Attorney for Kentucky, who was killed in

1811 at the Battle of Tippecanoe.
