About Clinton Assistants

Nettie Mae Lucas continues to help Clinton County.

Nettie Mae LucasShe lives in Clinton County but is unable to do research and look-ups for people. She has had an interest in genealogy since she was a teenager and worked for a lady during the summers who would have me transcribe stuff for her and type it up - on a manual typewriter no less! She gave me some family group sheets and I had such a fun time getting them filled out. This connected me to an aunt that had been doing research on our family and I was totally hooked!

Nettie Mae is married to a wonderful guy who puts up with her obsessions and pulls her back down to earth now and then. She has a daughter who is just getting interested in research since finding out that Al Capone may have visited the house that has been in her husbands family for years. She also has a wonderful son, all grown now, but he used to "hunting" with her - meaning we would go to cemeteries and take pictures and write down information. When he was in school, she would visit his class and share the love of genealogy with his class. We also have 3 beautiful grand children and I hope to get them hooked on family history too. It's never too early to start :)

Most of her family comes from Lee County, Illinois and Monroe County, Iowa. Her husband's family is from Carroll County, Illinois and we haven't really researched his mom's side because she was adopted. Basically, she just loves going thru old records, hearing people's stories and helping out however she can. She has made a lot of friends at the Clinton County Historical Society and enjoy working with them and helping out when she can.
