    Nice find!

    If you hit some of the old libraries in those rural towns there will sometime be old plat books in their reference section for their county and occasionally one of the major works like that as well.

    Les, I am in Jackson County also. I have a copy myself. Planning on getting the new digital version with better images.
    I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

    I'm in Saline County. My family has a few small farms with old house places on them here and in pope county. I plan to get a metal detector for Christmas and search some of these old house places, but you never know where there might have been a house we didn't know about? Have you found these digital copies yet? And does anyone have a handle on where that one plat book is right now? I looked all over online to find maps of old wells that were capped off by the gov but they don't tell much. If you all have any other tips for researching places to MD could you help a new guy out? Also, I just started gathering a little paydirt for panning gold in Pope county, waiting for my pan to come in so I can get started. I don't tell anyone because they'll think I'm crazy.. anyone hear of any gold in SI?

    I have the new version of the platbook and it is very detailed compared to the old xerox one. I wish they were free. If you would like one let me know.

    This book measure 11x14 inches. It's rather large but when looking at the maps it's nice.

    Does this plat book cover plats for all of Illinois or just of that one county?
