How can I find information on my family's Stephenson County roots?
A genealogist, whether professional or the family researcher is an explorer. We trace the paths of our ancestors; learn about the world they lived in and the circumstances they experienced. Some discoveries are anticipated, others are unexpected and often surprising.
One thing every genealogist learns in their journey is that it is impossible to go it alone. Often our ancestors lived extraordinary distances from our dining room tables where our searches begin.
That's where the Stephenson County Genealogical Society (SCGS) can help you. If you are unable to visit us in the History Room, you can request documents using the Research Request form.
