This page is dedicated to the History of Herrick, Illinois.
All history and genealogy items will be posted here to share with anyone searching for information on ancestors in Herrick and the surrounding areas of Shelby and Fayette counties. Cemteries are being recorded, data is being collected, and we will share it all right here. This is Not a members only site or a Commercial site. All data will be shared with everyone as it becomes available to us. Use this material for personal use only. Commercial use is prohibited.

The History information prior to 1983 was provided by the Herrick Historical Society. Thanks to the them we are able to share this information from the Herrick 1883-1983 Centennial History Book. Additional data, not in the book, is being added and will be noted as such. Many people have sent articles, stories and photos which will also be added to the history pages as time allows. Anyone wanting to add information or photos should email me using the following link. Email_Herrick_History  Please, do not send copy righted material. All materials will give recognition to the the author and person sending it to me.

Our Cemetery Database  is back online as well as a List of cemteries  we have recorded so far.
Photos are being added to names in the database as we receive them. If you have photos, information or obituaries for names in the database please email me a copy. We will post them with the cemetery records so that others might gain valuable information they might not otherwise find.
