Quincy Public Library is a great place to learn more about local history in the Illinois Room. With a wealth of information ranging from Abraham Lincoln’s Quincy connections to Quincy’s Underground Railroad, to early Mormon church members, and to local records for genealogy research, you’ll be able to find information to help in your search.
QPL’s Reference Librarians can assist you in locating the resources you’re looking for. Stop at the Reference Desk for more information or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The library also has several digital local history resources available.
Members of The Genealogical Society are available from 10 am to noon each Tuesday morning to help with ancestor searches. These volunteers can show you how to use local history material and point out additional options for researching your family. No appointment is needed.
