For the past three plus years, a dedicated team of volunteers have met weekly at the KCGS office to index the index card resource once used by the Chicago Title and Trust Company to access the title records in their possession. With this effort by the KCGS volunteers, over 71,000 entries have been identified.
The index cards cover title search transactions from the early-mid 1900s and provide connection to the contents of the title record abstracts. While the contents of the index cover the entirety of Kane County, not all title search transactions were completed by Chicago Title and Trust.
In the coming weeks and months, KCGS will be working with the Geneva History Center, which houses the abstract books, to make the data available to researchers. Once processing is finalized, the resource will be another great option for those with Kane County ancestors.
