DuPage Families: 
DuPage Families is a collection of data concerning people who lived in DuPage County Illinois.  It uses the application, The Next Generation (TNG), which allows a myriad of data on individuals to be linked to families.  Bios, tombstone inscriptions and pictures, newspaper obits and articles, Census data and other photographs are some types of information that may be included.
The society has elected to begin data input with DuPage cemetery readings and tombstone photographs.  Individuals are connected to families as that information becomes available.  Additional information on the individuals and families may be added at anytime.
DuPage Families is a project virtually limitless in scope and growth potential.  If you have questions or comments, or would like to volunteer to help with data collection and/or entry, please contact Carolee, the DCGS DuPage Families Administrator at  requests@dcgs.org
