There is a terrific article in Sunday's Belleville News-Democrat praising the work of Madison County (IL) Historical Museum's librarians: Mary Westerhold, Marion Sperling, and Leah Deem.
The article by Teri Maddox begins ...
"Move over, Jessica Fletcher.
Librarians at Madison County Historical Museum and Archival Library in Edwardsville do just as much sleuthing as the amateur detective in "Murder, She Wrote."

It's good to see their help and hard work being recognized by the community. The Madison County (IL) Historical Museum is in Edwardsville, IL
