It is important to know the boundaries because parts of the old Wayne
County are now part of other counties. Let's say you are looking for a
person who in 1819 lived in northeast Wayne Co., IL. Records for
them may be found in Edwards Co., IL, or in Richland Co., IL, since parts
of both these counties were once in Wayne Co., IL. Also, many records
for people who lived in Wayne City, Wayne Co., IL, can be found in Hamilton
Co., IL. Therefore, do NOT limit your research to 'only' WayneCounty.
Visit its neighbors.
