What do you do with these maps?

First visit Illinois Public Domain Land Sales at (Christian is county 011 here)

Or the BLM Land Patent Grants at and hunt for your ancestors.

Jot down the Township, range and section number then come back here to our map page.  For my GGG-Grandfather Moses Reed the info I jotted down was Township 11 (T11N), Range 4E (R4E), Section 23.  Now I find the point where T11 & R4E intersect above (Shelbyville Township), view the plat map for that section and walla, that little square with a number 23 on it in Shelbyville Township is the section where my ancestors lived in 1830!!

The sections were divided further into section parts (eg: Section Part E2NW, Section Part  E2SW) but we do not have those maps (Plat Maps) available to us at this time. ILGenWeb's County Boundary Maps 1790 - Present - Christian became a county in 1839. (It was originally named Dane).

Do you have a Christian County Map to share with your fellow researchers? Just attach it to Email!
