Volunteer

Over the years the Society has worked on a number of projects. Some have been completed, some are still in progress, and still others are waiting in the wings. Nothing would be accomplished without our volunteers.

To become a volunteer, call the Genealogy Room at 847-918-3584 for information or pick up an information sheet in the Genealogy Room.
