We welcome any information you may wish to provide

So, dust off those old
scrapbooks you have in your attic, dig out those old newspapers,
or anything else you feel is of interest to this County, and send
them our way. We are looking for obituaries, newspaper stories,
biographies, Birth, Death and Marriage records, as well as
interesting newspaper tidbits from years gone past - the items YOU
used to put together your family trees. If you have information
that you'd like to share with us on the history of this county and
its people, please SEND IT TO US and we'll make sure
it gets posted online.

Livingston County was founded on February 27, 1837. It
was formed from parts of McLean, LaSalle, and Iroquois counties, and
named after Edward Livingston, Secretary of State in the cabinet of President Andrew Jackson. He was the mayor of New York City, represented New York in the United States
House of Representatives, then represented Louisiana in both houses
of Congress and the
United States Minister to France. Although he had no connections to
Illinois, the General Assembly found him accomplished enough to name
a county after him.
