Kaskaskia Island from Fort Kaskaskia Overlook

The Island of Kaskaskia is seen in these photos that I took from the Overlook at Fort Kaskaskia State Park in Illinois.  The Mississippi River is in front and the Kaskaskia River is to the right. My ancestors lived at Kaskaskia before 1706, before the river moved in 1881 making it an island. My ancestors had moved to the old Ste. Genevieve before 1770.  I am working on genealogy website pages to share more about the family and will add these photos to those pages.
