Happy Holidays Everyone,
It's Christmas time once again and I want to wish one and all the best for the upcoming holidays.
I'd like to take a moment to say, it's been a pleasure working for all ofyou. I have genuinely enjoyed the opportunity of serving as the Hancock County ILGenWeb County Coordinator.
Your generosity and kindness will always be remembered and hold a special spot deep in my heart.
I feel you all are part of my extended family - from the volunteers with their nimble fingers graciously translating documents - to those who donated their time and energy to collect genealogical items to be placed on the website - to those of you who submitted your wonderful contributions - to the huge number of visitors browsing the website.
It is obvious and gratifying to see your valuable support.
