I am the Family History Coordinator for the Tampico Area Historical Society (Whiteside Co.) as well as a volunteer for the W⁄S Co. RAOGK. If you like, you may add my name to your "Look-ups & Resources" page of the W⁄S Co. Illinois Genealogy site.
Denise Wranik McLoughln - Can do obits & cemetery photos. Prefer to concentrate on Tampico, Hume, Hahnaman⁄Deer Grove, & Prophetstown areas in Whiteside County and Yorktown in Bureau Co. but will consider further area. If not possible for me to help, I will try to find someone in the vicinity you need to help you. Our Tampico website has many obits already posted as well as both of the cemeteries photographed in our Picasa photo Albums.
