Monroe County (IL) Genealogical Society meets on the third Thursday of each month except December in the Morrison Talbott Library in Waterloo, IL. Monroe County borders the Mississippi River and is close to St. Louis. President Jan Wenk notes that the Society is currently in the midst of two big projects: a history of Monroe County veterans with photos and bios, and a county-wide cemeteries database. The existing cemetery card index, available at the Morrison Talbott Library, has 31,225 names at present.
