    3. Wilhelm SCHOENWALDT and his wife Ernistina HOTZMANN arrived in USA c 1881 with children Ferdinand, August, Mary, Anna and Hellmuth. They later had Alvena, Augusta, Emilie and Frederick William in Illinois – probably near Kankakee. William’s parents and 5 siblings came to Australia in 1965. I have found this US link through Ancestry DNA. Sadly the person who was match has died before I did the test. Associated names are NOTNAGEL, NICHOLS, BERGHOUSE, KLAISS, KUTEMEIER, PIEL, HELDT JERGERSO(E)N. Place names are Kankakee, Yellowhead, Steger, Beecher city, Aroma Park, Grant Park and pardon my ignorance if these do not fit the criteria of this list. Any help, advice and a CONTACT would be so appreciated. Hazel Australia

    3. Hazel, 4 of these cities/towns are in Kankakee County, Illinois. They are Kankakee, Yellowhead, Aroma Park & Grant Park. I don't see a Mailing List for Kankakee County, though. There is a List for Effingham County where Beecher City is located, although it's quite a long way from Kankakee. You might try that List. Maybe someone on this List with more knowledge of Illinois would be able to give you more information. Good luck.

    3. Rick, I hope Hazel is still monitoring this List. I took almost a week to reply to her because I was waiting to see if someone with more information would reply, but no one did until after I posted. She hasn't replied to any of the posts.

    3. Hazel, The Beecher City that you found is more than likely not the Beecher City in Effingham County, Illinois. More than likely your Beecher City, Illinois is Beecher, Illinois which is in eastern Will County, Illinois. The town/city of Beecher, Illinois is located along Illinois Highway 1 which is also known at Dixie Highway. Beecher, Illinois is less than 10 miles north of Grant Park, Illinois. I would strongly suggest that you do your researching in Beecher, Will County, Illinois rather than the town in Effingham County which is at least 150 miles further south. There is a Kankakee Valley Genealogical Society located in Bourbonnais, Illinois. Their website is https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.kvgs.org&d=DwICAg&c=kKqjBR9KKWaWpMhASkPbOg&r=zWfsCD8Uqnvu_wevGPu20cShihzsenUFOfHNogiTAr8&m=fBo_PN9y--n56udoIOE40u9CvARZhTnDrLafnqdvgJ8&s=b_EsLsb0VW5B9DFD9ioxHcurpFw1RMBN5gYhy-XDeRk&e= The South Suburban Genealogical & Historical Society which has a library located in Hazel Crest, Illinois also covers the eastern portion of Will County, Illinois in their area of research and interest. Their website is https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.ssghs.org&d=DwICAg&c=kKqjBR9KKWaWpMhASkPbOg&r=zWfsCD8Uqnvu_wevGPu20cShihzsenUFOfHNogiTAr8&m=fBo_PN9y--n56udoIOE40u9CvARZhTnDrLafnqdvgJ8&s=Kj1FLbGvfY01SVvwm_2rVa7enCJACc-iUnd6b5Txes8&e= I am a member and a Director of the South Suburban Genealogical & Historical Society so I have firsthand knowledge that SSGHS covers the eastern portion of Will County, Illinois. There is also a Will Grundy County Genealogical Society. There website is https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.wggs.org&d=DwICAg&c=kKqjBR9KKWaWpMhASkPbOg&r=zWfsCD8Uqnvu_wevGPu20cShihzsenUFOfHNogiTAr8&m=fBo_PN9y--n56udoIOE40u9CvARZhTnDrLafnqdvgJ8&s=7pGtgvuNyBm5u8IGHSycKEfdGX-fWlYsnPzlD2IHu-g&e= The South Suburban Genealogical & Historical Society will to research in their library for a fee. I suggest that you check the websites of these three genealogical societies to see if the other two societies also will do research for you.
