Illinois Regional Archives Depository (IRAD)

Many times our ancestors would go to neighboring counties to conduct business, or to marry, depending on how close they lived to the border. They may have even owned land in an adjoining county. Below is a list of Stephenson and Carroll County records that are kept by the Illinois Regional Depository at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, IL. You may request copies of records by phone or mail. They do not accept e-mail requests. You may also visit the library and search the records yourself. Call ahead to find out what days and hours the library will be open.
