"SangamonLink.org will be your one stop shop. That will be a central spot to go to research Sangamon County history," said Sangamon County Historical Society executive coordinator Sam Wheeler.
Sangamon county has more than its fair share of history, and now, learning about and adding to that history is as simple as going online.
A.J. Lust is an incoming freshman to Sacred Heart Griffin, but he's one of many who helped contribute research and information to the website.
He encourages others to do the same.
"It helps to know what you're doing in the future to know what you've done in the past. I think it's helpful to be with something like the link, to know exactly where you're coming from. I think they should use it as much as they can, it's certainly something they can use."
