Courthouse Dome
Macoupin County IL
Spring and Fall 2000

Over many years, many people worked to save the old records which were stored in the Macoupin County Courthouse Dome.
As the idea was coming to be, the records needed sorted and moved to certain areas, labeled, and possibly microfilmed.
In 2000, we approached County Clerk Saracco about possibly purchasing the old Library Building.
He told us to find out how much was wanted for the old Library Building.
The owner of the old building owned a bar in Carlinville.
Linda Kmiecik, Carolynn Bettis, Phyllis Pitchford and me, Gloria Frazier "bellied" up to the bar to find out the price.
Unknown at the time was that on February 13, 2001, the Macoupin County Board would vote
to buy the old library building where the old records would be moved and where they would be in a controlled environment.

Linda Kmiecik, our excellent and organized leader,
"I said the tax books get done first!"
