TUESDAY’S TIP: SHERIFFS OF THE PAST



I recently learned that my husband’s 2nd great grandfather, Isaac Spencer Carter, was a sheriff in Randolph County, Illinois. It is such a pleasure to find ancestors who did something other than farm for a living.  With gusto, I began to research records on sheriffs. One of my findings was the Sheriffs of the Past listings on AncestorHunt.com:



This free online source is filled with links to sheriff records across the U.S. Although there were several links for Illinois, Randolph County was not listed.  Nonetheless, I wanted to share this site with you in case you too are searching for a sheriff.
