Hey Linda, You have done a lot of work. I like the state census chart. I hope the written direction will stay.
I saw one correction to the chart. But since I'm writing here, I can't see the chart. Hopefully I'll let you know, if not I'll put in the link myself.

I sent a pleading assistance to S. Cottrell to create Census template like Place template to cover various topics of Census. The articles/topics are exploding. Hopefully he will deliver quickly. dsammy 18:09, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
The records are best served by cross-referenced in probate records as well as in court records section. I read so many guardianship records, and at least over 3/4 of them are always linked to deceased parent(s), or grandparent(s) and special guardians are appointed. In case of DeWitt County, they are inside Wills and Letters books covering the wills, guardianships and letters of administrations, and this is just one example of many counties.

I have not worked on DeWitt county. I have tried to put the records that are referenced in the FHLC for both court and probate in both places on the Wiki county pages. Lsgc 03:40, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
- Even David Dilts felt they should be listed in probate records section, too. You have to remember the cataloguers did not always do complete jobs over the years. There are many entries in FHLC that are quite incomplete. Even the out of date information were found and reported to the cataloguers. Dilts said to use Wiki to flesh out more information as needed. You will find tons of guardianship records within probate files/packets/boxes no matter you try not to. Dsammy 05:14, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
- I agree with you Sammy. I will try to make sure that Guardianship records are posted in both Court Records and Probate Records on the county pages I am working on. I have tried to do that with the ones I have already done, but perhaps I missed some. If you see that I missed doing that you are welcome to post those records in the spot I missed.

Thank you for completion of the Census line task quickly! Dsammy 02:07, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
We at the FamilySearch Wiki would like to use this article, Johnson County, Illinois, for a featured article on the Main Page of the Wiki. However, the word "stub" appears at the very top of the page. If you feel there is enough content to give researchers a good place to work from - we need YOU to remove the word "stub" from the article before we can feature it.
Thank you for your consideration.
