1886 Portrait & Biographical Album of Knox County, IL Index

Thursday, July 21, 2011 11:42:51 AM last updated.

Page is getting longer as more and more Biographies are typed up. You can scroll down or use your browser's find under the edit. Just

type in the surname in the find space & then next or use the Free Find search engine on the index page. Search engine

will pick up surnames on all the new pages; plus, the one below that isn't linked to this yet.  I'm getting tired been a long day.

Thanks & happy Gene Hunting

Foxie's note: On pages 4 & 5 there are over 50 new

biographies on the settlers of Knox Co., IL.Somehow or another when first upload'n them I lost some biosand had to review. All the names on the both pages are below

but they are not yet linked to the pages. Just click on the link for the pages to go to them and then follow directions.  It's that simple and I've been here working for the last 5 hours at

least to get this problem corrected.

Thanks for your patience & your time.

June 03, 2006, 46 new biographies added to page seven and Page seven now has all names linked to page. Be patient and when clicking on the name let it download and it will appear right at the name you click on. If you move it it won't. That simple.

Have a Wonderful Day.


It is now @:54 am do you know where your children are??
