    ****** Notice to  my guests looking for info on your Warren County, IL, Ancestors.

        This picture is copywriter by your host at this website if seen on any other web site please advise.  I know where I obtained the picture and did not post it here.  Thanks.  Also, here is another one of the Almshouse from another source I'm leaving unnamed as to various reasons.  I do NOT appreciate somebody copying my work to claim for theirs on their own web site. Reason why these web pages have been made unavailable to be copied unless you email me.  It's the people like you who are too lazy to do you own research that makes it harder on the honest ones and then for people doing research who want to be able to access this.  I am terribly sorry about this for all you out there who are the honest ones.  The noxious, untrustworthy, treacherous ones I have no sympathy for at all.  Thanks for your patience......
