The TAMPICO AREA HISTORICAL SOCIETY is located in Whiteside County, ILand is the birthplace of President Ronald Reagan and Admiral Joseph Mason Reeves. Our historical society encompasses parts of Whiteside and Bureau Counties, with emphasis on Tampico, Hume Twp., Hanahman Twp/Deer Grove in Whiteside County and Thomas and Yorktown in Bureau County. By default & proximity, we sometimes include surrounding areas such as Prophetstown, Walnut, New Bedford, etc.
We have a very interactive Message Board that is monitored daily. We try to help you with local research as much as possible.
Our ongoing Cemetery project includes indexes that include other information such as location, parents, spouse and links to headstone photos, family photos, obits, and biographies, when available. Check our Table of Contents for the cemeteries we cover.
We offer thousands of pages of free historical and genealogical information and photos, so please visit often as we continue to update daily.
