Corrected Decimals in Illinois Database at

An earlier post on this blog ("Does Know About Decimals?") noted decimal point errors in Illinois, Public Land Purchase Records, 1800-1990 at [note--this database is availalble free of charge on the Illinois State Archives website at]

A search today of that database shows that the error has been fixed and the price per acre, total price, and number of acres has been corrected.

A set of search results for Andrew Trask shows the correct amounts.

Thanks to for making the correction.
