The Pioneer Project is being conducted by Hancock County ILGenWeb. Our goal is to identify and honor our Hancock county pioneer ancestors. We are building a database of individuals who settled in Hancock county prior to 1860. To insure that your ancestors are included in this project, you can fill out the simple form & click on the submit
button. Your information will be combined with that of other researchers to produce a searchable online database. This project is in the beginning stages of development. Please have a look at our database today and then come back frequently to see what has been added.
