Elmhurst Family Trees
Research Local History through Elmhurst Family Trees
The Elmhurst History Museum staff recently digitized a detailed collection of local family trees and they are now available to the public. The family trees were hand-drawn and lettered with careful attention to detail by a longtime volunteer, Mr. Ted Kross. Ted's diligent research and dedication to this project over many years allowed the museum to archive a valuable trove of historical data for some of Elmhurst's earliest families. Click on a family name link below to discover more about the city's early residents, and perhaps you'll reveal some surprising history about your own family! For more information or to make an appointment to research your family history, contact our curator of the collection, Dan Lund, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 630-833-1457.
