Adams County is located on the eastern bank of the Mississippi River in West Central Illinois. The county was established January 13, 1825, and named for President John Quincy Adams. John Wood is regarded as the founding father of Adams County. Wood and his friend, Willard Keyes, first settled in the area in 1819.

Online since 1996, the mission of Adams County ILGenWeb is to provide free genealogical and historical resources for our area. Adams County ILGenWeb is brought to you 100% by volunteers. In order for Adams County ILGenWeb to continue to grow we rely on data contributions from researchers like you. All of the contributions you provide to this project will forever remain with the Adams County ILGenWeb and USGenWeb Project.

Please plan accordingly: The Quincy Public Library will begin a renovation and construction project in August 2010. During the first phase of the project, which is expected to be completed in April of 2011, materials and services will be compressed into a much smaller space. For local history and genealogy researchers this means that local materials will be available in a “mini Illinois Room,” but materials that can be found in other libraries will be put into storage.
