Various Miscellaneous Items

Many databases containing items from a variety of locations allow users to use a drop-down menu to view an inventory of specific locations.

Make certain you check out any listing that could be statewide or for more than one location. I almost missed an 1878 farmers’ directory in Illinois because it was classified as a “various” location. searchtip

    Would you be so kind as to reveal where you found this farmers directory? I have great-grandparents that lived in Hanover twp. Cook County and am hard pressed to find information about them other than census records.

      Hi Marge. I live in Elgin, close to the Hanover Township line. I also have access to directories that I believe include Hanover Twp. Can you post your ggrandparents names and the time frame of when they lived in Hanover Twp?
