The ICGS welcomes your Family Histories for our files.

Our philosophy is -
"The more you spread it around, the less chance you have of losing the only copy in existance."

GEDCOMS are only accepted by snail-mail. These GEDCOMS will be stored in a safe place till needed.

Please be sure to include Your Name and Address on the label
so the disks can easily be filed and retrieved when needed.



Queries are published in The Iroquois Stalker at no charge.


The Society is now able to accept queries by e-mail.
Please include your name and mailing address with the query.

Research and Surname Searches

The cost for each surname to be searched is $20.00.
We cannot guarantee finding the information you seek,
although every effort will be made to do so.
(The fee is to pay for our researchers' time.)
This fee is only for time. The cost of applicable photocopies, and return postage is extra.

An additional hourly charge plus copying costs and postage will apply for more indepth research.


Click on the animated letter to submit your request by e-mail.
Work will commence AFTER your fee has been received in the mail or by Paypal.

You can use our
Iroquois County Research Form
Which will tell you what to expect for your money.


Microfilm Reading

We have Newspapers, Probates, Civil Court Records, Divorce Records and Criminal Records on Microfilm.

There is a charge of $2.50 to read the Microfilm
and copies are 50¢ per page.

Be specific as court cases can be as few as 1 page and can be more than 300 pages at other times.
We usually copy only the information that pertains to Genealogy.
But you can request the entire file.



Photo copies of materials are billed at 25¢ per page.
Microfilm copies of documents on microfilm are billed at 50¢ per page.
Color copies of materials are billed at $1.00 per page.
