Family History

People are invited to submit their family genealogy to be kept on file in the Grayslake Historical Society Archives. Genealogy help is available on Thursdays from 11:00AM to 4:00 PM and by appointment. There is a 25ยข per page charge for copying text. Image prices depend on size and type of copy work. There is an additional charge for extensive research by the Grayslake Historical Society.
