COVID-19 questionnaire

You are here

All In IllinoisMany years from now, historians will rely on newspaper accounts, government press briefings, institutional announcements and an array of statistics in an effort to piece together how society responded during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. But all of that ignores the most critical part of the equation: YOU!

Stories of everyday life are particularly hard to collect. So the McHenry County Historical Society & Museum is asking residents to share their experiences and help us record this slice of history for future generations.
