The Jacksonville Area Genealogical and Historical Society was organized in 1972 and incorporated in 1976 as a non-profit organization to collect data of a genealogical and historical nature. Most of our records cover Morgan County, Illinois and other nearby counties such as Cass, Scott, Sangamon, Menard, Macoupin, Greene, Adams, Brown, Schuyler and Pike. We also have some miscellaneous material on states, mainly Virginia and Kentucky.
