A collection of Springfield, IL Newspaper
Clippings from the WWII Era.

This collection was donated to the Christian County Genealogical Society by Jerry Banfield.
The clippings are a product of Jerry's Grandmother, who lived in
Springfield during the time of WWII and saved the articles,
that appeared, of area service men & women.

The CCGS is proud to have received this collection and to be able to make
them available to the public.  For prints, contact us at
