- Update for Nichols Library Help Sessions
This note is for genealogists who like to come to the Nichols Library for some genealogy assistance. Unfortunately, it will be closed August 1 and 2 for renovations so no help sessions will be available for the 6:30 to 8:30 genealogy help session on these dates. Sorry for any inconvenience...We will resume after that as normal..Please check the library's website.
- Check out our updated Mike's Index. We've added our latest new entries in October, 2015, bringing our total to almost 55,000.
- Also check out our updated Local Names Index. We've recently added another 6500 names from Naperville newspapers dating from 1850 to 1943. That brings our total to over 46,000 names of people who lived in Dupage, Kane, and Kendall counties that can be found in local cemeteries, church records, newspapers, and historical documents.
