Historical Book Submission Deadline Extended

More than 6,000 brochures have been mailed to county residents with an extended deadline of April 15, 2018, to submit your family biography and order your copy of the Washington County History & Families- Bicentennial Edition book.
Each brochure includes information on how to submit your family biography, along with sample photos to include.
‘We’ve received a couple hundred family biographies and over 250 book orders, but we know there’s plenty of families in Washington County who need to be in this book. Our 200th anniversary includes everyone in the county, past and present, so do not hesitate to submit your 500 word family biography to us!,” said Elaine Rucker, Book Committee Chairman.
Along with an extended deadline to submit family bio’s and book orders – pre-sale price remains $54.95 but it WILL go up after the pre-sale ends – all Washington County businesses, churches, schools, and organizations are highly encouraged to purchase a Feature Page in the book. Each page purchased helps the Historical Society by adding pages to the book, and each page allows you to tell your history. ‘These are important pages of history in the book,” said Rucker. ‘Our county is partly built on the backs of businesses, churches, schools, and organizations, and your story is vitally important.’
Anyone needing more information, a family bio/book order brochure, or a feature page brochure, can contact Elaine Rucker at 618-327-8075 or stop by the Historical Society in Nashville at 326 South Kaskaskia Avenue on Saturdays from 1-4 pm.
