Another project the committee is undertaking is the locating and listing of all the Pope County Cemeteries. If you know the location of a little known cemetery please let them know.

Pope County Connections

is the genealogical newsletter which is published as a section of the Pope County Historical Society's regular publication,

The Packet

The newsletter is informative and gives news from the historical society as well as previously unpublished genealogy information, photographs, a section to place queries and let everyone know which Pope County Families members are researching.


The Society is considering reprinting the "Pope County, Illinois, History and Families" Vol. 1. If anyone is interested please contact the Pope County Historical Society by mail or email Cheryl Broadway Cossey for more information.
